This is a great news for PLDT Home subscribers like myself. Soon, we will be able to tune in to our favorite Netflix originals series like  Narcos, Stranger Things, Sense8, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and a whole lot more.

As for Roku, PLDT Home subscribers will be able to stream their favorite movies and TV shows on their TV screens. Roku is the streaming platform with the highest engagement in the US because of its diverse content and user-friendly interface. Roku's alliance with PLDT is its first streaming deal in Asia, making the Philippines the first in the region to join the ranks of Roku's international markets such as Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia. Roku services will launched commercially early next year.

The deal with iWant TV lets PLDT Home subscribers stream their favorite ABS-CBN shows, both past and present airing. Popular teleseryes like On The Wings of Love, Dolce Amore, Ang Probinsyani and Till I Met You will be easily accessible on demand so avid followers can catch up on the latest episodes. News and current affairs shows are also available for streaming.

The partnership with Amazon on the other hand will soon open the door for Filipino book lovers to enjoy the popular Kindle e-book reader.
