A world of free videos


Free videos sans added data usage? Yes, that is possible. Smart Communications Inc. is giving its prepaid customers free access for one hour daily to YouTube until July 15.

“Through this path-breaking partnership, many more Filipinos can pursue their passions like music and entertainment, and learn a wide range of skills, hobbies, educational material, news and information through the massive library of video material of YouTube. This service is something every Filipino should have access to,” said Oscar Reyes, Jr., SVP of Consumer Business Market Development for PLDT and Smart.

“We are proud to partner with YouTube to bring the service closer to our customers. This is just the start of a fruitful partnership, and we are working on a lot of other exciting initiatives that will enhance the digital lifestyle of Filipinos,” Reyes added.
