The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) said on Thursday it has bundled its landline connection, PLDT Home DSl and Cignal TV as a single product to make family entertainment more accessible to Filipino homes.
PLDT Executive Vice President and Head of HOME Business Ariel P. Fermin said subscribers would have access to 93 digital channels of Cignal when they sign up for the Triple Play plan.
“This strategic partnership with Cignal will help us level up home entertainment for our subscribers as we establish the strongest connections at home.”
The PLDT HOME DSL Triple Play service reinforces the home broadband leader’s growing entertainment content portfolio, which included live channels running on broadband and movie on demand offers.
The digital TV channels from Cignal include NBA Premium and Cignal-exclusive channel Disney XD. Subscribers who sign up for or upgrade on April 30 can watch the Pacquiao-Mayweather match for free, on May 3.
“All of our products and services are designed to build and fortify the digitally connected Filipino home,” Fermin said.
PLDT Vice President and Head of Home Marketing Gary Dujali said the bundle cost P1699 per month, “or just add P400 on their existing HOME DSL Plan.”
“We are making family-size entertainment more accessible to Filipino homes,” Dujali said.
In 2014, PLDT HOME DSL reached its one-millionth-subscriber mark.
