Long hours spent working all week can definitely take its toll. That’s why it’s important to have some time for relaxation. What better way to do that than to watch our favorite TV shows and/or movies. Now we can do that anywhere with HOOQ, Asia’s largest video-on-demand service with over 30,000 hours of movies and TV series.
This new form of entertainment suits Filipino audiences really well because it blends the best of Hollywood with that of Pinoy video content accessible through any gadgets with internet connection. According to Mr. Ravi Vora, HOOQ’s Chief Marketing Officer, “the Philippines has a well-established entertainment industry and the local audience is highly knowledgeable and unique“. This fact makes introducing this service even more sensible.
HOOQ has an extensive collection of shows and adding to that list is the popular series Gotham starring Ben McKenzie, who plays a young James Gordon. In addition to Gotham, HOOQ announced its line-up of blockbuster superhero TV series like Arrow and The Flash that are already live on the service.
HOOQ likewise introduced their brand ambassadors in the Philippines, actors Xian Lim and Jessy Mendiola. Their commercial where they recreated famous movie scenes from Jerry Maguire, Pulp Fiction, and Mask of Zorro is absolutely hilarious.
I’m so happy that Luigene from HOOQ sent me an email with a special voucher code that I had to input to get free access when I sign up for an account. The HOOQ App can be downloaded at Google Play and Apple Store.
I downloaded and installed it on my iPhone 4s, but I couldn’t find the register/sign up box, only the login box. So I went to their website and registered there but had to first install Microsoft Silverlight. After the whole registration and installation process, I finally accessed the main dashboard where thumbnails of TV shows and movies are displayed. It’s easy to go through the titles because they are organized into different genres. Plus, there’s a search box on top for faster searching.
