Voyager Innovations, Inc. (Voyager), with its new service offer to include pre-fight videos, news, and information beginning today up to the Pacquiao-Mayweather match scheduled on May 3, every feed of updates and special content free-of-charge was made accessible for the supporters of the people’s champ, Manny Pacquiao via SafeZone (http://www.safezone.ph/)
Giving free access to the sports page (http://www.safezone.ph/sports), users can now scan through updates without worrying about mobile data charges, like other services under SafeZone.
Another cultural history to partake in
According to Dindo Marzan, AVP for Product Development and Management, Voyager, offering a more accessible service in SafeZone could increase more number of users to participate in another historical event in the Philippines via digital technology.
“The fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather will be one of the great cultural events of the decade. By giving Filipinos free mobile data access to coverage about the fight, they can be engaged with what is sure to be a historical milestone for the Philippines,” Marzan said.
In addition to the real-time updates and curated content, SafeZone will also offer a live Twittercast during the main event on May 3. Users can view the live Twittercast by visiting the SafeZone sports page.
The live Twittercast will cover the fight from many different angles and will curate only the best tweets from the best feeds, so there is sure to be something for everyone. There will be blow-by-blow updates, boxing analysis, entertainment-related news, and more, all of which make use of the hashtags #PusongPacquiao, #SugodManny, and #MayPac.
Marzan thinks that the live Twittercast can serve as an all-in-one information clearing house for anyone interested in the fight.
“Television coverage can only provide a viewer with so much information – you’re limited to the commentator’s analysis and what’s there on the screen. Our live Twittercast, in contrast, will give our users all the narratives that interweave to make the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight one of the most compelling stories of our time,” he said.
