CLICKPLAY.PH the Philippine’s first Movie-On-Demand service provider officially launched last Wednesday its ‘right-here, right-now’ video streaming service that gives all members the ability to enjoy movies when, how and whereever they want it instantly and seamlessly.
The launch was held at the Linden Suites in Ortigas, Pasig with CLICKPLAY.PH President Jon Sherwin Dela Cruz together with the product heads of Samsung TV and Samsung Mobile and other partners like PLDT, Smart and Magnavision.
CLICKPLAY.PH aims to become the country’s version of iTunes with some great advantages for all local service subscribers. Let’s look at some of the existing features of CLICKPLAY.PH as compared to the 10-year old market leader when it comes to paid downloads.
CLICKPLAY.PH allows users to rent movies with a 48-hour unlimited viewing period and register up to 3 devices per movie and enjoy watching your movies anytime, anywhere and even from where you left off on any of all your registered devices because the service remembers where you stopped watching.
iTunes gives service subscribers only a 24-hour viewing window.
CLICKPLAY.PH charges only 100 pesos for all new movie titles and 60 pesos for catalogued or older movie titles.
iTunes charges around $4.99 for new titles and $2.99 for older movies. That’s around 50% more than what CLICKPLAY.PH is currently charging.
CLICKPLAY.PH offers a number of payment methods. PLDT subscribers can charge it on top of their monthly bills, SMART subscribers may also opt to charge it to their prepaid and postpaid credits or pay via Paypal for credit card users. Other payment options are soon to be included.
iTunes accepts Credit Card Payments.
CLICKPLAY.PH also partners with PLDT, Smart and Samsung for more flexible viewing options. PLDT Fibr subscribers allows users to stream movies at the highest quality possible plus a number of complimentary movies monthly.
When you purchase a SAMSUNG Smart TV, SAMSUNG Mobile Devices and SAMSUNG Tablets you also get complimentary movies from CLICKPLAY.PH.
These are just some of the add-ons that the service is offering its users to make it more competitive and enjoyable.
Currently, CLICKPLAY.PH carries movies only from Warner Brother and Sony Pictures and I think that’s the only downside to the service – the limited selection of movie titles. However, CLICKPLAY.PH president Jon Sherwin Dela Cruz said that they are already in talks with other international and local movie outfits and even plans to explore indie film groups for future partnerships.
The CLICKPLAY.PH service is limited to the Philippines only and the app is downloadable via Google Play as of the moment but will soon be available on iOS app store.
CLICKPLAY.PH indeed has a lot of catching up to do (mostly in beefing up their catalogues) but with the direction it’s taking right now, I can say that movies-on-demand services is going to be a next big lifestyle hit for all on-the-go Filipinos nationwide.
