Smart Communications subscribers can now access iflixVIP for three months. This comes after an announcement of a deepened partnership between the video-on-demand streaming company and the mobile network.
Exclusive contents are in store for VIP subscribers including iflix Originals, linear channels, special events, Filipino telenovelas, and K-dramas.
“Our commitment to bring audiences across the Philippines the best in entertainment continues with this collaboration,” said Sherwin dela Cruz, Co-founder and Country Manager for iflix Philippines.
With a consumer-base of over one billion in MENA, iflix is expanding its collection to local original shows, first run exclusives, and iflix SNACKS, their short-form and snackable content apart from its existing Hollywood and local selections. 
A new addition to their roster is iflix NEWS. In an effort to combat the spread of fake news, iflix partnered with CNN, Al Jazeera, DW, CGTN, and CCTV 4 to provide direct access to local news channels.
Under their marketing banner “Your Entertainment, Your Rules,” iflix allows its subscribers five devices to mobilize content on-the-go. 
“Our partnership with iflix gives our subscribers a much wider range of digital content to enjoy on the go, powered by no less than the country’s fastest LTE network,” said Gerard Milan, Head of Entertainment Product Management at Smart.
