HOOQ Philippines Celebrates 1st Anniversary
HOOQ Philippines just celebrated their 1st year of service, providing great selections of movies, TV shows made available right at everyone’s fingertips. All you need is a smartphone, tablet, computer and internet to be able to enjoy it. And a good thing about HOOQ is that you can download your chosen movie or Tv show and you can watch it offline.
And since I love watching movies and sometimes series, I’m really happy that HOOQ Philippines is here. No more bored moments for me 🙂 By the way, A SUPER HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOOQ!
With over 35,000 hours of Hollywood, Korean, Thai, Bollywood, Filipino movies and TV shows and many more, HOOQ became the number one paid video OTT service in the Philippines with over 100,000 paying subscribers. With that, no wonder that HOOQ was named as Best Mobile App in the Media, Film, TV or Video category at the GSMA’s Global Mobile (GLOMO) Awards 2016 in Barcelona.
“It’s been a year of milestones for HOOQ and we have been running at overdrive to always keep our customers entertained. From exclusive superhero content and merchandise to same day as US telecast TV series, we never stop to ensure that there is always something to put a smile on our customers’ faces. Our paid subscriber numbers are a testament to HOOQ’s acceptance in the Philippines. Thank you Philippines for the encouraging support! We will continue to work hard to deliver more surprises!” said Jane Cruz-Walker, Country Manager of HOOQ.
“We extend our heartiest congratulations to your company for reaching this very important and exciting milestone. We wish you continued success as you embark on yet another year of filling our world with wonderful movies and series. Happy 1st Anniversary and more power, HOOQ TV!” — Ms. Leng Raymundo, Vice-President, Acquisitions and Program Distribution, ABS-CBN
“HOOQ has paved the way for Filipinos to consume local content via its new platform. We at Regal Entertainment are proud and happy to be a part of this exciting ride. This year, we promise to deliver the best and the latest movies from Regal to Hooq’s growing subscribers.” — Ms. Roselle Monteverde, Vice President, Regal Entertainment
HOOQ Philippines customers can now binge on Spartacus, White Queen and The Player, another HOOQ exclusive series, which debuted on the service a couple of weeks ago. In addition, the cult hit Community, will also be available only on HOOQ from April.
