Hooq is now with Globe

Globe has officially announced their partnership with Asia’s first Video On Demand service, HOOQ! During the 5th Wonderful World with Globe, they announced their venture into VOD (Video on Demand) with Singtel, Sony Pictures Television and Warner Bros. Entertainment start-up venture called HOOQ.

The product is simply called “Hooq,” the newest and most exciting addition to the growing services under the year-old success that is collectively dubbed, “Wonderful World with Globe.” The said campaign is what gave both pre-paid and post-paid subscribers such services as Call-All/Text All, free Facebook and Viber connections, and downloadable music via Spotify among many others.

“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.

Much like Globe changed the way Filipinos consume mobile, with Hooq, we will change the way Filipinos enjoy entertainment,” Cu confidently declared.

The telco’s head honcho underscored the huge amount of entertainment Filipinos consume, not only via TV and cinema, but even in purchasing video content whether online or through other “resourceful” means.

Obviously pertaining to bootlegs, Cu quipped, “Now we’ll do it legally!”

“But in fact, the way we Filipinos demand entertainment today has already greatly changed,” he continued. “With all of us leading busy lives, we often don’t have time to catch our favorite shows when they’re actually shown on TV. I’ve actually stopped watching TV altogether because I want to be able to watch the shows that I want on my own terms.”

With Hooq—created by Singtel to be “Asia’s video-on-demand service”—Globe subscribers “can watch Hollywood movies as Harry Potter, Spider-Man and Inception, while enjoying popular TV series such as Gossip Girl, Friends and Smallville,” as the launch handout stated. “Local film and TV content will also be available local high grossing films such as Metro Manila, A Secret Affair, Shake, Rattle and Roll, Ang Tanging Ina, as well as classics including Dyesebel, Bagets and Bituing Walang Ningning . Highly rated TV shows like My Husband’s Lover, Mulawin, Tayong Dalawa and Maria Clara will also be available anytime, anywhere.”
