Experience Smart Life with music, movies & more

(The Philippine Star) - August 31, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - In line with its grand push for Pinoys to live smart, the mobile services provider Smart Telecom continues to beef up its content to fill every person’s digital swag with an unrivalled entertainment on-the-go experience.

“We all know how one song can fix or alter someone’s mood or how one movie or video can bring a person to an escape from current reality. And as a nation of digital adapters, we have gone far from getting our music and movie fixes from the radio, cinema or TV,” opened Carlo Endaya, head of Brand Strategy and Communications Group.

“We are now empowered with a ‘personalized remote control’ through our smartphones. That device on your hand takes care of your soundtrack and binge-watching requirements. This is where the essence of Smart Life’s entertainment on-the-go really lies — in elevating the actual experience of our consumers.”

Music die-hards who happen to be Smart subscribers have been enjoying homegrown and awarded music app Spinnr for two years now.

“Spinnr has gone beyond providing the music needs of our subscribers. For example, there is no other music app in the whole world that religiously takes its users to right where the concert or meet-and-greet actions are happening. And Spinnr has done that over and over, sending our subscribers to meet the likes of Katy Perry, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift in one-in-a-lifetime milestones that they also get to share via social media,” Endaya said.

Spinnr has an ongoing ticket raffle promo to the upcoming concert of Maroon 5 (Sept. 17) and a fly-off promo to the Las Vegas leg of Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour (Oct. 24).

Prior to these concert series promos, Smart and Spinnr gave away thousands of tickets to the two-night concert of One Direction last summer, and recently to the Manila leg of Ariana Grande and Imagine Dragons’ concert tours.

“For movies and TV series, Smart and PLDT recently partnered with iFlix and the service now provides thousands of updated blockbuster films and must-watch series for our subscribers. We also partnered with Fox, which can be accessed via Viewstream. Plus, we have all the video contents from YouTube, Daily Motion and other video sites for those who are into what’s trending and viral these days,” said Endaya.

The biggest Internet TV service in Southeast Asia with over 100,000 subscribers, iFlix has struck deals with Hollywood’s top studios to bring the most captivating TV and movie content to Filipino users, including hit series like Sherlock, Doctor Who, Homeland, Friends and The Big Bang Theory.

On the other hand, Fox allows subscribers to view nine live channels which include three channels for Fox Sports, National Geographic, NatGeo People, NatGeo Wild, Fox News, Channel M and Star Chinese Channel.

When it comes to gaming entertainment, Smart also celebrates Clash of Clans (CoC), the world’s top mobile game, by mounting the Philippine Clash 2015, the country’s biggest nationwide CoC tournament with over P2.3M prizes.

Smart also recently teamed up with Ranida studios to bring PBA Philippine Slam, the most downloaded sports video game with 1.6 million users to date.

“Smart is now boosting its feature-packed promos to include allocation for entertainment on-the-go so subscribers can experience all these at the palm of their hands,” said Endaya.

Smart has recently leveled up its Big Bytes 50 offer, which now comes with free 600MB worth of access to Fox, iFlix and Spinnr — on top of the 350MB worth of mobile Internet access which subscribers may use to surf and chat, among other online activities.

Big Bytes 50 is valid for three days for just P50. Subscribers may register to Big Bytes 50 by simply dialing *121#.
