Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. or PLDT has introduced a new technology that makes watching TV over the internet easier and more satisfying. Through PLDT Watchpad, myDSL subscribers can watch TV shows, films, and more over the internet. Available channels now include National Geographic, Cartoon Network, Pinoy Box Office, CNN, Animax Mobile, CNBC, and GMA 7, with more coming soon.
Best experienced starting with myDSL Plan 1299, Watchpad is available for free to all myDSL subscribers nationwide. Subscribers have to register at www.pldtwatchpad.com to get their username and password.
PLDT Customer Sales and Marketing Group Head Eric Alberto said PLDT Watchpad is a fitting demonstration of synergy in the PLDT Group made possible by a partnership with Mediascape, the media partner.
“Through the years, we have continuously reached more households more than all competitors with high impact, direct-hitting acquisition programs, which not only raised awareness and relevance of Internet, but also changed the overall complexion of the business,” said Alberto.
“Our commitment to innovate and continuously raise the bar of excellence has earned PLDT myDSL the most preferred broadband status – 4 times more preferred versus competition.”
PLDT Watchpad promises to give PLDT broadband subscribers another first – a revolutionary service that combines a broadband connection with rich multimedia content.
“There’s something for everyone on Watchpad. While surfing, DSL subscribers can watch the hottest channels, movies and even play online games for free. You can even update your Facebook, Multiply and Twitter accounts without having to leave your Watchpad Player,” said PLDT myDSL assistant vice president Gary Dujali.
“Not only that, but even the award-winning films of Cannes Film Festival Best Director Dante Mendoza will be featured in Watchpad. Best of all Watchpad can be enjoyed by all MyDSL subscribers for free. Expect more, bigger offerings in the coming months,” Dujali added.
With the launching of Watchpad, PLDT expects to increase not only Watchpad registrants but also DSL broadband subscribers as well.
