PLDT HOME and Smart let you experience entertainment everywhere with PH’s largest library of movies and TV series with iFLIX
Enter the no-TV-zone that lets you watch what you want when you want in just two clicks with iflix, country's biggest library of video on demand content to partner with the country’s biggest multimedia networks PLDT HOME and Smart.
The Philippine launch of iflix comes at spot-on timing since it recently secured topline content deals with giant Hollywood studios The Walt Disney Company, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution (Fox), BBC Worldwide (BBC) and Warner Bros.
International Television Distribution (Warner Bros.). This means that on top of existing over 11,000 hours of TV serial titles and updated catalogue of Hollywood, European and Asian releases, shows like “Sherlock”, “Doctor Who”, “Homeland” and “The Big Bang Theory” are now part of iflix’s growing library.
For movies, iflix beefs up its Hollywood selection with action blockbusters like “Star Trek”, “Batman Begins” and “Green Lantern”, among thousands of other choices.
PLDT HOME and Smart welcome the addition of iflix as part of its ever-expanding entertainment ensemble. “This is literally entertainment everywhere. With all of these titles bannered under PLDT HOME and Smart’s power-packed lineup of reliable Internet services for families and individuals, your choice of entertainment device deserves its own star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” rationalized PLDT EVP and Consumer Business Group Head Ariel P. Fermin.
“You already have the device that has the capability to showcase your guilty viewing pleasures—whether it’s a smartphone, a tablet, laptop, desktop computers and even TV screens. All you need is that one movie, that particular episode or even an entire season that you’ve had on your must-watch list. From small escapes like whenever you’re stuck in traffic, to binge-watching rare moments when time is on your side, subscribers now have the access to the widest library of entertainment content with iflix. It gets so much better because you are able to gain access to these titles through PLDT HOME and Smart’s strongest and largest multimedia platforms wherever you are in the Philippines,” explained Fermin.
Meanwhile, iflix chairman Patrick Grove raved over this exclusive big-gun partnership move with PLDT and Smart by saying: “In PLDT we have found a like-minded partner who is committed to changing the way entertainment content is consumed in the region. We look forward to building an extraordinary business in the Philippines together.” Grove added, “We are extremely proud to have come together with the largest telecommunications company in the Philippines and, indeed, one of the region’s leading companies, to offer iflix to PLDT’s enormous customer base. With well over 75 million Filipinos communicating and being entertained using PLDT services, they are the absolute perfect partner for iflix in the Philippines.
Iflix also eliminates streaming setbacks because it’s available through PLDT and Smart. The service also liberates users from incompatible streaming due to regional conflicts.
