Globe Telecom announced their venture into VOD (Video on Demand) with Singtel, Sony Pictures Television, and Warner Bros. Entertainment start-up venture called HOOQ during last night’s celebration of 5th Wonderful World with Globe held at The Eye at Green Sun Hotel in Makati.

HOOQ is a start-up joint venture between Singtel, Sony Pictures Television, and Warner Bros. Entertainment that will enable customers of Globe Telecom to enjoy unlimited online streaming access and an offline viewing option to top Hollywood and Filipino movie and television content, via any device including computers, smartphones and tablets. Sounds interesting.

HOOQ has more than 10,000 movies and television episodes and TV shows including titles from partners Sony and Warner Bros., as well as local film and TV content available through partnerships with the country’s top studios, such as GMA, Viva Communications, Regal Entertainment, and ABS-CBN.  

Across the emerging economies, people have amazing stories and love stories. However, a few billion people have no quality way of seeing the best stories from Hollywood or their local market.  HOOQ will change that.  HOOQ will change the way people in emerging markets consume and enjoy entertainment,” said HOOQ Chief Executive Officer, Mr Peter G. Bithos. “The Philippines is a natural first market for us. Filipinos’ dual love of local and Hollywood content combined with their  digital savviness makes the Philippines a perfect place for us to start,” he added.

How much will it cost?

Globe Telecom will provide its customers with the ability to download HOOQ, which will soon be available to customers on a plan-based service for Php 199 per month for access to thousands of movies, far more affordable than buying a ticket for just one movie. It will also be offered as a bundled service with the telco’s GoSURF and Tattoo broadband services.

To meet their needs, we see the video-on-demand services offered by HOOQ as a critical offering representing the future of the industry. Now that consumers have access to a variety of international and local content, entertainment will now be more personal, and with Globe, this means experiencing it with the highest quality.” said Mr. Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom.

The service will also be accessible to all customers in the Philippines through its website – http://HOOQ.tv. Through HOOQ.tv, customers can watch videos of their choice and pay for the subscription by credit card.
