“The rapid adoption of connected devices means more people in Asia are able to access the Internet anywhere and at any time, driving demand for compelling content that enhances their digital lives,” said Jonathan Auerbach, Singtel CEO Group Digital Life. “HOOQ is set to change the way people across the region consume and enjoy entertainment.”

Now a pastime for Filipino digital consumers

According to a Nielsen report in 2014, viewing online video content has become a pastime for digital consumers in the Philippines, with 85% watching at least weekly, the second highest in the region. The same report also revealed that 7 in 10 digital consumers in the country report watching TV content and movies via online sources such as video on-demand, the second highest penetration of Internet TV in the region at 71%.

“We see the video on-demand services offered by HOOQ as a critical offering representing the future of the industry. Now that consumers have access to a variety of international and local content, entertainment will now be more personal, and with Globe, this means experiencing it with the highest quality,” said Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom.
