PLDT Home DSL launches ‘biggest family-sized entertainment’ with Fox and iFlix on TVolution
They mean it when they say, “The strongest connections are at home.” For, with the Filipino family always in mind as they do their part in ushering the nation into the digital age, PLDT Home DSL dutifully makes sure that every new service they introduce enables families to come together, rather than stay glued to their personal devices.
At the start of October, leading broadband provider PLDT Home DSL held an intimate preview and demonstration of its “beefed up and biggest family-sized entertainment” with iFlix and Fox International Channels (Fox) through the TVolution unit, running on the strong, reliable and family sized connection of Home DSL. The editors’ roundtable was held at the Red Latern restaurant of Solaire Resort and Casino.
Pulling their service miles away from its competitors, PLDT VP and Home Marketing head Gary Dujali stated, “We are elated with the vote of confidence from our subscribers for keeping us as their brand of choice for their home broadband. We will continue to provide solutions to give our customers the best entertainment that the whole family can enjoy as we provide the strongest connections at home.”
Earlier this year, PLDT Home formalized breakthrough partnerships with global entertainment company and Asia Pacific’s leading broadcaster Fox International Channels. It also announced its partnership with Southeast Asia’s leading Internet TV service iFlix, providing exclusive access to critically acclaimed TV series in the US, Mr. Robot.
“With these two powerhouse content providers, there will always be something for the family to enjoy together—whether it’s a nail-biting suspense thriller, a laugh-out-loud comedy show, a thought-provoking documentary, or films from around the world,” Dujali added.
Fox’s subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) offerings also include live and catch-up television on various FOX channels so that families have the option of enjoying their favorite sports events through live viewing or their favorite blockbuster shows through catch-up TV.
Jude Turcuato, general manager and senior vice president of FOX International Channels Philippines meanwhile said in a press statement “We pride ourselves on the quality programming that we deliver to our viewers, and our partnership with PLDT Home allows us to reach a wider base that consumes content in an innovative way. TVolution also gives our existing customers another convenient way to access our content, improving their viewing experience in turn.”
iFlix Chairman Patrick also stated they are glad to have found an outstanding partner who shares their vision in PLDT: “With over 75 million Filipinos communicating and being entertained using the PLDT Group services, PLDT is the perfect partner for iFlix in the Philippines.”
Meanwhile, the TVolution demonstration showed a new model of the device, which can turn regular televisions into smart TVs. Improvements on the unit and its functions further show a screen that is well organized and easier to navigate, much a like an android smartphone.
“Even the titles available to our subscribers are well-curated, assuring families of endless hours of family viewing at amazing speeds,” concluded Dujali.
