- ABS-CBN TVplus Go now available in more outlets nationwide
- Data-free entertainment on the go for Filipinos
Filipinos looking for comfort from the daily inconvenience of energy-draining commutes and long hours of work –– but wary of spending too much on data to access entertainment on their smartphones––can now turn to ABS-CBN TVplus Go, for their entertainment fix at an affordable price.
With ABS-CBN TVplus Go, commuters can watch ABS-CBN shows on their Android phones without having to use data.
Launched in June by ABS-CBN, the first network in the country to go digital, ABS-CBN TVplus Go is the on-the-go version of the popular TVplus box that turns Android smartphones into a “handheld TV” without consuming mobile data by acting as a digital TV broadcast receiver.
Now, Filipinos can enjoy Kapamilya shows outdoor on their Android phones with TVplus Go as much as they do on their TVs at home with TVplus.
TVplus Go is a perfect companion for commuters as it lets them catch Kapamilya shows on ABS-CBN, tune into various sports programs on ABS-CBN S+A, be updated with the hottest news on DZMM TeleRadyo, and catch funny and action-packed blockbusters on CineMo. They can even indulge in their K-Drama fix on Asianovela Channel, revisit Pinoy classics on Jeepney TV, watch foreign and Hollywood films on Movie Central, and even check out the latest music videos on MYX. Completing their list of entertainment channels are YeY, Knowledge Channel, and O Shopping – all these without the dread of data charges.
In addition to supporting Filipinos by giving them affordable access to entertainment on-the-go, ABS-CBN TVplus Go also supports the government’s initiative to make TV networks fully migrate to digital. ABS-CBN is leading the shift to digital among TV networks in the Philippines with the TVplus box, the country’s widely used digital terrestrial television or DTT service and it is continuing to encourage more Filipinos to make the big switch with TVplus Go.
TVplus Go is simple and easy to use, and works with USB-OTG Android phones, with a micro USB port (type-C port may function using a micro USB-OTG adaptor with data support) and a few other base specifications – Android 5.0 operating system or higher, 1GB RAM or higher, and a dual-core processor or higher.
In an effort to give more Filipinos pockets of entertainment in their daily life, TVplus Go is now available in 15 major outlets nationwide – SM Hypermarket, SM Savemore, SM Department Store Gadget Hub, SM Business Center, SM Appliance, Robinson’s Appliance, Abensons, Villman, Silicon Valley, DIY, Handyman, and Puregold, on top of Cellboy, Celltime, and SM Mall Information Booths, the first batch of outlets that made the device available.
ABS-CBN TVplus Go works in areas where digital TV signal is available, including Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Batangas, Tarlac, Pangasinan, Baguio City, Cavite, Laguna, Iloilo City, Bacolod City, Metro Cebu, Cagayan de Oro City, and Davao City. It is available for only P799.
