Launched last June 24, 2015, iflix, the country’s biggest library of video on demand content partnered with the country’s biggest multimedia networks PLDT HOME and Smart.
The Philippine launch of iflix comes at spot-on timing since it recently secured topline content deals with giant Hollywood studios: The Walt Disney Company, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution (Fox), BBC Worldwide (BBC), and Warner Bros. International Television Distribution (Warner Bros.).
Try iflix for free
Register an account via www.iflix.com and instantly enjoy a FREE 14-day trial of service. Once the free trial expires, PLDT HOME and Smart users will be able to subscribe to the P99 per month package, while it comes free with PLDT HOME Fibr and PLDT HOME Telpad plans.
Smart prepaid subscribers can employ a pay-as-you go scheme by purchasing month-to-month subscription using their prepaid balance. Postpaid subscribers will be charged per month on top of their bill.
Streaming only, for now
At the moment, there is no Download and Play feature that allows our customers to watch content even without an internet connection. This is a feature that is currently being worked on so iflix subscribers can truly experience entertainment everywhere.
Video library to be expanded
The iflix library is a work in progress, there are some US and UK television series that only has one or two seasons. There are series that are only behind a season, others have episodes added to iflix a day after their US premiere, and some air exclusively on iflix.
There are 2 categories for Asian television series: Asian-TV and Korean. The Korean category has English subtitles due to its immense popularity but the Asian-TV category are still being worked on.
Locally, iflix plans on adding television series, movies and documentaries from TV5.
Better with Mobile
At the moment, use of iflix goes against the bandwith allocation per month. However, Smart subscribers will be able to experience iflix on their mobile devices through innovative mobile data packages that include volume data allocations for iflix and other entertainment content soon.
