Globe Streamwatch is easy to use and enjoy. By just plugging and activating the device, our customers will readily have access to a wealth of entertainment available at home even without cable connection.”

Globe Streamwatch users will be able to watch a variety of content across free and paid channels in different categories including sports, lifestyle, fashion, and more.
