Globe partners with Netflix in the Philippines

Leave it to Globe Telecom to come up with the most exciting content partnerships with global brands to further strengthen their offers to customers. Just recently, Globe announced their partnership with Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network with over 81 million members in over 190 countries enjoying more than 125 million hours of TV shows and movies per day, including original series, documentaries and feature films. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on nearly any Internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.

Actually, way back in January, I already started checking out Netflix. I caught up with some episodes of “Jane The Virgin” and “Elementary.” Also, back in January, while negotiations were still probably in the works, Globe already made it possible for consumers who do not own credit cards to subscribe to Netflix.

Just recently, however, last June 24, Globe formally announced its partnership with Netflix making it the first Philippine mobile and broadband to offer Netflix on its mobile/broadband platform. Soon, Globe customers will be able to subscribe to Netflix through Globe, and enjoy its content anytime, anywhere, on nearly any internet-connected screen, while conveniently charging the monthly subscription to their Globe mobile or broadband accounts.

You know what this means — it’s now easy for us “Orange Is The New Black” to watch the episodes!!! 😀

Fans of Netflix original titles and content can now subscribe to the internet television network through Globe Direct Carrier Billing services.

To date, the Philippines is now the fastest growing smartphone market in ASEAN according to the International Data Corporation’s (IDC) Asia/Pacific Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, with 3.5 million smartphones shipped to the country in the 1st quarter of 2016.

Netflix will also soon be available to customers on the new customized Broadband plans.

By signing up for a Netflix account, members can watch today’s top original Netflix series and renowned movie hits. Netflix adds TV programs and films all the time. As members start using the service, Netflix’s algorithms will start to shape each member’s personal profile with recommendations based on what each member likes. Depending on the subscription plans, members can create up to four profiles within a single Netflix account. Profiles allow different members of the household to have their own personalized Netflix experience built around the films and TV programs they enjoy. There are also parental control settings to ensure a safe-viewing experience for kids. This will limit a child’s profiles to child-friendly titles.
