iflix, the Southeast Asian streaming service, has entered into a strategic agreement with Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) to provide iflix’s service to customers of PLDT’s telecommunications, Internet, mobile and multimedia services in the Philippines.
The companies also recently announced a financial investment by PLDT into iflix.
Under the agreement, broadband subscriptions of certain high-end PLDT HOME products will now include a monthly iflix subscription at no extra charge. Further, iflix will also be offered across all PLDT HOME and Smart platforms as a value added service at a price exclusive to PLDT customers. As an additional bonus, data used to stream iflix content will not count towards PLDT HOME and Smart customers’ data limits.
iflix Chairman, Patrick Grove, commented: “We are extremely proud to have come together with the largest telecommunications company in the Philippines and, indeed, one of the region’s leading companies, to offer iflix to PLDT’s enormous customer base. With well over 75 million Filipinos communicating and being entertained using PLDT services, they are the absolute perfect partner for iflix in the Philippines.”
