iflix, your go-to internet TV service, has just inked a content partnership deal with one of the country’s leading TV networks, GMA. With this momentous partnership, iflix subscribers now have access to previous and current hit GMA shows, documentaries, and feature films wherever, whenever they please.
Initially, the venture has added 1,200 hours of content to iflix’s rapidly growing catalog of entertainment offering. The first batch of GMA titles already rolled out into the service last August 15 with more content on its way.
Popular shows from the network such as My Husband’s Lover, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, and Amaya, along GMA News documentaries i-Witness and Pinoy Abroad are now part of iflix’s extensive library of quality movie and television content. Meanwhile, feature films from the network include all-time classics such as Jose Rizal and Muro Ami, along with more recent titles such as Sossy Problems and The Road are also now available for viewing on iflix.
iflix also introduced a new in-service function during the event, Catch up TV. This function will allow subscribers to view new episodes of currently airing GMA shows on iflix within seven days of their initial broadcast. For the first batch, local Catch up TV will show The Half Sisters with My Faithful Husband, Beautiful Strangers, and Pari Ko’y to follow suit.
“Our partnership with GMA is key in our commitment to providing our members with the best in local and international entertainment. The addition of GMA content is a testament to that promise in delivering the best in Philippine content to our members across the Southeast Asian region,” Sherwin dela Cruz, country manager for iflix Philippines said.
Just 3 months into its Philippine launch, iflix has already been offering exceptional international content fast-tracked from the U.S., including top late-night talk show Conan, which subscribers can view on the service 24 hours after its broadcast.
Joel Jimenez, vice chairman of GMA’s Executive Committee shares his thoughts about the changing media landscape.
iflix has also recently secured first-run rights to the second instalment of Fargo, which will premiere October 12, 2015 on FX in the US. All new episodes will premier exclusively on iflix less than 24-hours after its initial U.S. broadcast.
The internet TV service will soon be available in additional key Southeast Asian markets, including Thailand and Indonesia. Users can also look forward to more content, improved features and user interface, download-now-watch-later function, and promos throughout 2015.
Each subscription allows users to access the service on five devices such as mobile, tablet, computer, or television set. The service is priced at only PHP 129 per month for unlimited access.
