ABS-CBN mobile is changing the world of mobile phone usage in the Philippines by augmenting call, text, and mobile internet offerings with live streaming of ABS-CBN shows, “Best of ABS-CBN” exclusives, and other special shows that enrich the experience of subscribers.
Subscribers can now watch ABS-CBN shows via live streaming and catch up on episodes they missed through the iWant TV app or mobile site.
They also have access to exclusive content such as a collection of videos under “Best of ABS-CBN” beginning April 20.
“Calls and text messages are a given. More and more, people are looking for engaging content that they can access easily, wherever they are. This is all part of our innovation strategy because we see that in the near future, people will use their mobile phones differently. Our apps, content, and special events give people a glimpse of this future,” said Carlo Katigbak, president of ABS-CBN Convergence Inc.
ABS-CBN Convergence Inc., which offers ABS-CBNmobile, a mobile phone service launched last year to create new possibilities for watching ABS-CBN shows, celebrities, and other media content.
ABS-CBNmobile marketing head Nandy Villar added that ABS-CBNmobile is riding the wave of change where people are switching to smartphones.
“We are excited by the idea that people increasingly desire smartphones for entertainment and news. ABS-CBNmobile not only offers the full range of basic mobile services like call, text, and mobile internet, but also entertainment and news that come from ABS-CBN, the country’s most watched TV network. We are offering content that people love and that traditional telco companies don’t have,” he said.
ABS-CBNmobile also recently launched its iWant Stars application, a pioneering app for smartphones that allows fans to follow their favorite Kapamilya stars through short videos, pictures, news, and messages about them.
The company said that customers just have to buy an ABS-CBNmobile SIM, put it in their smartphones, buy the desired prepaid load, and download the iWant TV and iWant Stars apps to enjoy exclusive content from ABS-CBNmobile.
ABS-CBNmobile has nationwide coverage and a reliable signal. Its Prepaid SIMs, which cost P30 each, are also available nationwide.
