Ive been hearing this much talk about HOOQ since the start of March, an online entertainment service that gives you access to a library of thousands of international and local movies and TV series. in the past, I was able to download a lot of streaming apps available in the market but none of them feels personal to me.
So what I did is to experience it myself. I downloaded it on my android phone. (For Android users, you can also download it if your OS is Jellybean and up and for all iOS users, required OS should be iOS7 and up.) The first few items that I saw are my favorite series by JJ Abrams!
Well from the looks of it, it seems like I am the target market of this app. Being an avid fan of TV series and movies, HOOQ is definitely my kind of app. HOOQ is actually a start-up joint venture between Singtel, Sony Pictures Television, and Warner Bros. Entertainment.
It is set to change the way people consume and enjoy entertainment by allowing customers to watch movies and TV across their devices – be it smartphones, computers, and tablets, this is all powered by GLOBE, the leader in mobile and telecom innovations in the Philippines.
So I checked the kids section for my nephew and found some of the best creations locally and internationally. Theres RPG Metanoia and Hero High!
From Globe Telecom’s partnerships with Facebook, Spotify, the NBA, and Viber, the telco further strengthens its leadership by enhancing the digital lifestyle of Filipinos. From social media, music, sports, and messaging, Globe now takes over entertainment with HOOQ, Asia’s online entertainment service.
This app even shows TV Series from the past! Its nice to look back from Ugly Betty to Greys Anatomy.
So what I have found? Well, surprised to see my favorite movies and TV series from Hollywood and locally produced combined.There were 13from Drama to comedy up to intense action films. From Local, there were items from GMA, Viva Communications, Regal Entertainment, and ABS-CBN.
Ok so now the main question for everyone is how to avail of HOOQ?

Once the separate allocation is used up, it will automatically use your GoSURF data. When all allocations have been exhausted, you will be charged P2/MB for Postpaid or P5/15min for Prepaid for data use.
