On November 23, Pinoys will again drop everything to watch the country’s pride Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao battle it out with the young and hungry Chris Algieri of the US. If you are a Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun Cellular subscriber, you are in for a treat. For the first time, you can watch Pacquiao’s fight live and with no commercial breaks, on your mobile device, for only P199.
Wireless services leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart ) has partnered with video-on-demand service Blink to provide an affordable, convenient, and enjoyable Pacquiao experience exclusively to Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun Cellular subscribers.
No need to sit through endless advertisements on television, no need to shell out cash for costly pay-per-view subscriptions or cinema tickets, or jostle for a nice viewing spot at the crowded barangay center.
Will Algieri score an upset and retire boxing’s only 8-division champion? Will Pacquiao overwhelm his opponent and further raise the world’s hopes for a Floyd Mayweather match?
Watch how it goes down by texting BLINKSPORTS 199 to 3161 for Smart and Talk ‘N Text, or 2354 for Sun. The system will send you an SMS containing an e-PIN code.
Then you must create an account at www.blink-now.com, click on the website’s Pacquiao tab, and enter the e-PIN in the field provided. This will allow you to watch the Pacquiao-Algieri fight either on the Blink website or via the Blink-Now mobile application on your Android or iOS devices. If you enter the e-Pin now, you will no longer need to re-enter on the code on November 23.
No credit card is needed to subscribe to this package. The P199 will just be deducted from your prepaid load credits or charged on top of your postpaid bill.
Aside from watching the live Pacquiao match and the undercard fights, you will also get access to Pacman’s previous fights and training videos, which you can watch anytime on Blink.
In areas without WiFi access, this service will work great using the country’s strongest 3G and LTE connection. Standard data charges will apply if you are not on a data plan or package.
