In the words of Oscar winning storyteller, Bong Joon Ho, “once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.” The exploding popularity of Asian content in recent years proves that what matters most to today’s audience is a compelling and well-told story. In case you’re one of those who got caught in the Asian content craze, let us introduce you to WeTV – a streaming platform where you can watch your favorite series!
As part of its commitment to deliver premium Asian premium content to its users, WeTV teamed up with Globe as its first telco partner in the Philippines to help bring beloved Korean, Japanese, Thai, and local content to Filipinos. This partnership is beneficial for everyone, especially Globe users, as this paves way for ad-free viewing — we all know how ads can be annoying when they pop out in the middle of an action-packed scene!

Everyone can watch content on the WeTV app for free but Globe customers can opt to enjoy an uninterrupted ad-free experience and earlier access to new releases, simply by:

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR US
Aside from popular Korean dramas, Anime, and Boys Love stories, WeTV also offers a great deal of compelling original content!
Leading the roster of titles VIP users can enjoy on WeTV are the ABS CBN Primetime Bida series, including Ang Probinsyano, available to stream 50 hours ahead of all other platforms and free TV, as well as the inspirational drama Huwag Kang Mangamba and Init Sa Magdamag which starts streaming 46 hours ahead. Other content offerings include one of my favorite animes – My Hero Academia, Korean drama The Sweet Blood, and Thai drama Lovely Writer. WeTV has such a diverse content library that caters to different spectrums of fans and interests, with new titles constantly added in, ensuring fresh and top-quality shows and movies for viewers to binge-watch to their hearts’ content. All of these and more can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere with a click of a finger.
“At Globe, we are committed to bringing Filipinos the best Asian blockbuster movies and hit series,” says Chelo Flores, Director for Video and Music Squad of Get Entertained Tribe. “That’s why we’ve partnered with a new gamechanger in the world of video-on-demand services. We continue to bring the best of Hollywood and local content, and NOW, we’re bringing in more exciting Asian stories to our loyal customers.”
Echoing Globe’s excitement for its partnership with WeTV, Georgette Tengco, WeTV Country Manager, expresses: “WeTV believes in the compelling storytelling powers of Asian countries, and we’re more than happy to bring Filipinos the local and regional shows and movies we all know and love. We look forward to working with Globe Telecom in bringing in more amazing content for everyone to enjoy.”
We look forward to seeing more content (especially anime) on WeTV! Currently enjoying my WeTV access so I thought of sharing this with you as well. 🙂
