MANILA, Philippines - Mall-goers were treated to a different kind of experience as they stepped into the future of digital cable TV and high-speed broadband Internet. These and more were featured in the three-day SkyZone mall exhibit on March 28 to 30. The event was held simultaneously in three major cities in the country — Robinsons Place Manila, SM City Cebu, and SM Lanang Premier Davao. It was indeed a successful event as countless people from different parts of the country discovered up-to-date innovations in both TV and online entertainment.

Skycable featured its 42 HD channels, the widest range in the country today. Among its formidable roster of quality HD lineup is HBO Asia, the event’s channel partner. HBO showcased its total family entertainment line-up with blockbuster movies, action-packed thrillers, award-winning specials, compelling original series, and a whole lot more! When it comes to premium, quality programs, HBO never fails to excite viewers of its feature offerings.

Through SkyZone, people gained an appreciation of the top-notch technology of HD viewing. Having their favorite HBO movie scenes and characters come alive in high definition as compared to the ordinary features of standard definition brought them to a whole new dimension in TV viewing.

HBO Asia also sponsored exciting games and premium prizes. Fans of the top-rating HBO original series, Game of Thrones, even had a blast participating in various interactive games and having their photos taken at the Iron Throne set up in the HBO booth.

Aside from Skycable’s HD channels, mall-goers were also introduced to the pioneering feature of iRecord. It allows viewers to record any Skycable program they faithfully follow and still enjoy the convenience of doing the things they need to do without missing their all-time favorite shows. Plus, with the flexible subscription option of Skycable Select, viewers can choose the programs that best suit their taste.

Adding to the excitement of this three-day event is Sony, the leading manufacturer of quality electronic products and a SkyZone valued partner for the second year. Sony provided state-of-the-art LED TV sets during the event which further enhanced mall-goers’ total viewing experience.

On top of cable TV experience, individuals who were into Internet viewing enjoyed first-hand access to the widest source of online entertainment at the fastest residential broadband speed in the country of up to 200Mbps. Because you want more, Skybroadband provided uninterrupted online viewing as if watching directly from your cable TV sets. Everyone had a great time surfing through Skybroadband’s premium content offerings, Fox Movies Play, iWant TV, and HBO GO.
