SKY unleashes its newest products One SKY and SKYdirect in Cebu to bring its superior brand of entertainment to more families.
Filipino families can now enjoy the convenience and premium entertainment brought by One SKY, an all-in-one subscription plan that integrates its suite of internet, cable, and video-on-demand services for a more enriching digital entertainment experience.
One SKY postpaid plans will allow families to access SKYbroadband’s high-speed internet, watch SKYcable’s premium HD cable TV, connect to SKYmobi’s mobile internet for cable shows on the go, and catch SKY On Demand’s live and on-demand video streaming of cable shows and movies.
The launch of One SKY marks SKY Cable’s foray into convergent services for Filipinos in the evolving digital media landscape. As an ABS-CBN company, SKY Cable’s introduction of One SKY also complements ABS-CBN’s transformation into an agile digital company.
On SKYcable, Filipino families can bond by watching cable TV channels that cater to every family member. They can also watch channels in high definition like ABS-CBN HD, ANC HD, S+A HD, HBO HD, RTL-CBS Entertainment HD, Cartoon Network HD, and Disney HD, among others.
“We have chosen the channels that are most relevant to Filipinos because we value their viewing habits. This is why we give them exclusive access to high definition channels and give them top-rating channels like NBA Premium HD, which we will offer for plans as low as P1,599 per month,” Claudia Suarez, SKY’s head for consumer product business explained.
Meanwhile, the high-speed connection powered by SKYbroadband enables families at home to stream shows seamlessly on multiple gadgets via SKY On Demand and explore the internet with no limits.
SKYmobi, SKY’s mobile internet service, provides families with easy access to cable TV shows anytime, anywhere when they are far from home through SKY On Demand, the only online video service in the country that allows users to watch live foreign and cable TV channels on different gadgets for free based on their SKYcable subscription. A selection of popular shows from top cable TV channels are also shown on SKY on Demand after an episode has aired on TV.
Families also have an option to enhance their One SKY subscription plan by adding channels individually or in packs via SKY Select and availing of monthly pay-per-view offers. One SKY plans also grant subscribers exclusive access to HBO GO, HBO’s video-on-demand platform exclusively available in the Philippines through SKY, where viewers can explore HBO’s diverse show lineup including “Westworld” and “Game of Thrones” shortly after an episode premieres.
“SKY recognizes the changing habits of the Filipino family, as well as their increasing reliance on internet connectivity for their daily activities. One SKY is a bundle that offers a seamless connected experience to families through only one subscription,” March Ventosa, SKY Cable chief operating officer said.
He added, “This is how we empower Filipinos and underscore our vision to bring the best content experiences closer to Kapamilya homes.”
One SKY offers postpaid subscription plans starting at P1,599 per month with internet speeds ranging from 8 to 64 Mbps for unlimited home consumption paired with a strong lineup of cable TV channels. For families who are always on the go, mobile internet access via SKYmobi may also be added for as low as P499 per month.
Meanwhile, families who live in far-flung areas in Cebu can have access to the best content through SKYdirect, SKY’s direct-to-home satellite pay TV service. Similar to SKYcable, SKYdirect showcases a mix of foreign and local cable channels including ABS-CBN HD, DZMM TeleRadyo, Knowledge Channel, Myx, Lifestyle, Tagalized Movie Channel (TMC), Nickelodeon, Warner TV HD, and TLC, among others. Option to subscribe to pay-per-view offerings are also available to SKYdirect subscribers as well as free monthly movie marathons. SKYdirect’s prepaid plans are available beginning at P99, while its postpaid plans start at P250.
