As part of Globe’s move to transition from a telco to a more comprehensive digital lifestyle company, they just announced a long-term, multi-year partnership with one of the most recognizable global brands, the NBA.
The partnership will allow both prepaid and postpaid subscribers to purchase NBA league passes to get access to live NBA games, streamed right to their mobile devices. The subscriptions will be available to Globe users via affordable packages that can be purchased piecemeal, or bundles with postpaid plans. A day pass to the live games can be purchased for as little as PHP 10 with the GoSURF10 bundle, or opt for up to seven single day passes bundles with their plans for as low as PHP299. Postpaid subscribers get seven day passes every month for up to 24 months, depending on their postpaid subscription.
Non-Globe subscribers can get in on the action as well, and purchase league passes, though a separate connection to the Internet will be required.
Globe will also be launching the Pisomall where subscribers can watch short clips of interviews, highlights, and other content for PHP 1 apiece. The service will carry, along with NBA content, content from local partners as well.
“We are excited to welcome Globe into the NBA family,” said Scott Levy, NBA Asia Managing Director. “The NBA shares Globe’s commitment of enriching the lives of Filipinos and, through this new partnership, Globe will have a presence across all areas of the NBA experience and bring the game closer to out millions of fans throughout the country.”
