PLDT Home inks exclusive partnership with Lionsgate Play


As a result of the partnership between PLDT Home, the Philippines’ fastest broadband service provider, and Lionsgate Play, residents of the Philippines will now have access to an entertainment viewing experience that is bigger, bolder, and more powerful when they watch television at home.

Lionsgate is a renowned Hollywood studio that has created and distributed some of the world’s most popular titles, including the blockbuster film franchises The Hunger Games, Twilight Saga, John Wick, and Saw, as well as the critically acclaimed television series Mad Men. Filipinos may enjoy and experience the best of worldwide entertainment across action, comedy, drama, horror, and thriller genres — and more of Lionsgate Play’s hallmark offers — by simply subscribing to a PLDT Home Fiber Plan 1699 or above.

“PLDT Home and Lionsgate are bringing entertainment straight from the box office into people’s homes. From the best love stories to the best of horror down to the most action-packed films and shows, the world’s best content is simply a push of a button away with Lionsgate Play for all new and existing PLDT-powered homes,” PLDT Home Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Business-Home Group Jeremiah de la Cruz said. “This partnership is part of our continuing mission to provide our customers the fastest broadband connection in the country so that they can better stream their entertainment choices including the most exciting and irreverent stories from Lionsgate Play. Beyond PLDT-powered homes, Lionsgate Play shall also be available to Smart customers soon.”

“Our endeavor has been to ensure viewers are provided with a curated lineup of great content, spread across genres for the best viewing experience,” Lionsgate Executive Vice President Amit Dhanuka said of the partnership. “Taking this forward, we are excited to partner with PLDT Home to launch Lionsgate Play in the Philippines. We are reaching out to a large and diverse sector of consumers with a digitally-driven offering enabling them to ‘play more, browse less.’ We look forward to more Filipinos enjoying the best of what Hollywood has to offer!”

Power, an American criminal drama, is one of the titles offered at Lionsgate Play’s Philippine debut. Power follows heroin dealer James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) as he tries to leave his life of crime behind and open his own nightclub, with rapper and actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson serving as executive producer. Power is one of the most popular and well-rated shows on premium cable television in the United States.

Apex, a futuristic action picture, is also part of Lionsgate Play’s marquee content. The film stars Bruce Willis as Thomas Malone, a falsely condemned prisoner who is offered a second chance at life.

The critically acclaimed thriller Gaslit, starring Julia Roberts and Sean Penn, is now available locally through Lionsgate Play. Martha Mitchell (Roberts), the wife of former US President Richard Nixon’s Attorney General John N. Mitchell, is the focus of the new series, which follows her as she uncovers the full magnitude of the Watergate affair in the 1970s.

The studio’s most commercially successful films and franchises are also included on Lionsgate Play: The Hunger Games follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her heroic adventures in a post-apocalyptic world; John Wick follows the titular character (Keanu Reeves) as he returns to his life as a hitman to avenge the death of his beloved puppy; the Twilight Saga follows the epic love story of teenager Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson); SAW

Mad Men, a multiple Emmy and Golden Globe-winning period drama starring Jon Hamm that is widely considered to be one of the greatest TV shows of all time; and The Royals, a drama chronicling the tradition, opulence, and scandal that surround a fictional modern-day royal family, are among the shows available on the streaming service. Lionsgate Play also allows PLDT Home users first access to the trendiest new episodes, such as Becoming Elizabeth, which follows Elizabeth I’s rise to power and the intrigue and betrayal that came with it. These and other shows will be available on Lionsgate Play soon!

Existing and new PLDT Home Fiber Plans 1699 and higher will be provided exclusive access to Lionsgate Play without additional costs until June 1, 2023, just in time for the Philippine launch of the streaming service.
