In case you didn’t know, Globe Telecom recently ventured into VOD (Video on Demand) with Singtel, Sony Pictures Television and Warner Bros. Entertainment. It’s a start-up service called HOOQ, which allows unlimited online streaming access and an offline viewing option to top Hollywood and Filipino movie and television content, via any device including computers, smartphones and tablets. For people (like me) who love watching movies and television series, this is heaven-sent because this gives us access to more than 10,000 movies and television episodes and TV shows.
According to a Nielsen report in 2014, viewing online video content has become a pastime for digital consumers in the Philippines, with 85% watching at least weekly, the second highest in the region. The same report also revealed that 7 in 10 digital consumers in the country report watching TV content and movies via online sources such as video-on-demand, the second highest penetration of internet TV in the region at 71%. “To meet their needs, we see the video-on-demand services offered by HOOQ as a critical offering representing the future of the industry. Now that consumers have access to a variety of international and local content, entertainment will now be more personal, and with Globe, this means experiencing it with the highest quality.” said Mr. Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom.
Recognizing the value that video-on-demand services deliver to consumers, Globe Telecom provides its customers with the ability to download HOOQ, available to customers on a plan-based service for P199 per month, for access to thousands of movies, far more affordable than buying a ticket for just one movie. It is also offered as a bundled service with the telco’s GoSURF and Tattoo broadband services.
