PLDT forges streaming partnership with Fox
The PLDT Group announced an exclusive partnership with Fox Networks Group Asia, part of the company’s push to increase its presence in the content space.
PLDT said in a statement Thursday the partnership with Fox was signed with its mobile unit Smart Communications and satellite TV business Cignal TV. The deal allows PLDT subscribers to stream movies and TV programs from Fox’s library.
“As we improve our network, we also continue to grow the library of popular video content that our subscribers can access,” PLDT chief revenue officer Eric Alberto said.
Smart subscribers can download the Fox + app from the App Store and Google Play and enjoy a 30-day free trial. They would have access to 11,000 hours of content, including the earliest non-cinematic release of Hollywood blockbusters, TV shows and live sports events, PLDT said.
Smart has been expanding its content portfolio via partnerships with iflix, Netflix, Cignal and ABS-CBN’s iWantTV.
“Filipinos now have a growing appetite for relevant content that they can access anytime, anywhere. As they increase their consumption of digital content, we are making sure that our network is strong enough to support not just their current requirements, but their future needs as well,” Alberto said.
