Are you a kind of a person who spends time watching videos to past time. What video platform you normally visit? Can you afford spending extra to pay for this service? There were some free streaming though, but let’s accept the fact that when it’s free, it is limited. As much as we wanted to see the full version of trending videos we like, most of the time we took advantage of the free wifi in schools, cafeterias or in the malls. Like what I said, we’ll suffer from the buffering-annoying-slow Internet connection.
Worry no more because Smart Communications, Inc. as wireless services leader, created another groundbreaking move to ensure that Smart subscriber can now watch YouTube videos, as well as content from DailyMotion, Vimeo, Viewstream, Skype Qik, and Dubsmash on their mobile phones wherever, whenever they want through affordable ‘sachets’ designed to suit their mobile lifestyle and budget.
The packages start for as low as Php5 up to Php199. Very affordable isn’t it? So there is no stopping now for everyone to continue the fun in watching viral clips. Here are the packages:
YouTube5 – 65MB – 15 mins – 1 day
YouTube25 – 160MB – 35 mins – 1 day
YouTube50 – 400MB – 90 mins – 3 days
YouTube199 – 270 mins – 30 days
“Smart is thrilled to make online video content more affordable and accessible to Filipinos,” said Michelle Curran, First VP and Head for Data Services at Smart. She also added that, “this move reinforces Smart’s push to deliver fast, fun and worry-free mobile internet to serve all the needs of Filipinos – whether to connect with loved ones, access news and information, or enjoy the vast wealth of enriching and entertaining online content.”
Definitely, this is the answer to our angst. No more shouting when the video just stops playing and no more cursing if the content just don’t play at all. Top up your account, register (dial *121#), and voila, enjoy watching.
