Digital-savvy Filipino families are up for an enriching and unique digital experience as Sky Cable, the country’s leading cable and broadband technology provider in the Philippines, is now offering access to pay-per-view offerings online via SKY On Demand on top of its strong channel lineup and movies online.
Viewing flexibility is now more convenient in the digital world as SKY On Demand, Sky Cable’s video-on-demand platform, offers Filipino families convenient access to pay-per-view content and their favorite local and foreign cable TV shows online on multiple devices anytime, anywhere in the country.
According to Sky Cable head of digital/OTT Jerome Almirante, the viewing habits of Filipinos are rapidly changing because they prefer watching shows using different gadgets aside from TV.
“With SKY On Demand, Filipino families can watch SKYcable shows online, and stream pay-per-view, live cable channels, and catch up episodes of popular local and foreign shows on their laptops, smartphones, and tablets,” he said.
Sky Cable’s pay-per-view options that are now readily available on SKY On Demand are fresh-off-the-cinema blockbuster releases, restored classics, award-winning indie films, live or recorded coverages of concerts, and live coverage of sports events.
SKY On Demand was launched in 2015 during Sky Cable’s 25th year, signaling the start of Sky Cable’s direction to redefine cable TV viewing among Filipinos. Its library boasts pay-per-view content, local and foreign channels like CNN, Disney, and BTV; movies, and exclusive channels like ABS-CBN HD, ANC HD, ABS-CBN Sports + Action HD, among others. It is accessible using a SKYbroadband or SKYmobi (mobile internet) connection.
The multiscreen experience is accessible on TV via the SKY On Demand-capable HD digibox. On smartphones, families can enjoy their favorite shows like “America’s Got Talent” and “Adventure Time” by downloading the SKY On Demand app on Android and iOS, while laptops and PC users can head over to the official site (www.skyondemand.com.ph) to start streaming. The service is exclusive to all SKY postpaid subscribers that comes with a free registration.
The company aims to continue its mission of being at the forefront of introducing innovative services that keep up with the ever-changing digital lifestyle of Filipino families and complement ABS-CBN’s strength in content production and distribution in the digital era.
“Sky Cable led many creative innovations in the past 25 years. Our inspiration behind it all is the Filipino family because we want every Kapamilya to have the best and unique content experience that only Sky Cable can offer and no other industry player can replicate. In this way, we are living the mission of being in the service of the Filipino people,” Alan Supnet, marketing head of Sky Cable said.
Sky Cable is a unit of ABS-CBN Corporation, the country’s leading media and entertainment company that is transitioning into an agile digital company by seeing growth in its digital television and mobile businesses while staying committed to be in the service of Filipinos worldwide.
Throughout the years, Sky Cable has delivered and distributed world-class content using innovative services. It pioneered cable TV in 1990 and launched the first prepaid cable service in the Philippines through SKYcable prepaid. It also introduced the iRecord feature that lets subscribers pause, play back live TV, and record shows. Now, Sky Cable is eyeing expansion nationwide through the launch of SKYdirect, its affordable direct-to-home pay TV service.
