CATCHING the year's blockbuster hits is now more affordable as Smart Communications Inc. (Smart) subsidiary Smart Broadband Inc. (Smart Bro), in partnership with local online movie service Clickplay.ph, brings its subscribers hundreds of movies for streaming at half the price.

For as low as P50, Smart Bro subscribers can stream full-length movies on Clickplay.ph when they use their mobile broadband devices to rent movies on the Clickplay website or through its various mobile apps.

With hundreds of movies in its database, Clickplay is currently one of the very few movie streaming services available in the country that gives movie aficionados legitimate access to their favorite blockbusters at very affordable prices.


"Smart Bro subscribers who weren't able to catch this year's blockbusters can now affordably stream their favorite movies through Clickplay. And with Smart's supercharged high-speed network, they can get seamless and uninterrupted access to movies at their convenience," said Michele Curran, Data and International Services Marketing Head at Smart.

To get the discounted rates from Clickplay, subscribers would have to use their Smart Bro connection and choose "Smart" as a payment option when paying for the movies they want to rent.

After this, they will be redirected to the my.SMART portal where they will be asked to enter their Smart Bro number. A 5-digit PIN will be sent to the Smart Bro number which the subscriber would have to enter in the designated field on the my.SMART page.

Once the transaction has been verified, the user will receive a summary of the payment indicating that the amount has been charged to his Smart Bro account. After this, the subscriber will see the recently purchased movie in his "My Movies" page on the Clickplay service.

Movies will be available for viewing for a period of 30 days, but will expire after 48 hours once the first movie streaming activity commences.

Streaming movies from Clickplay is best enjoyed with Smart Bro's new Flexitime offers, which gives users the power to control their Internet time. Flexitime 100, for example, gives users up to 12 hours of Internet surfing valid for 7 days, which is perfect for two-hour movies every weeknight or a long movie marathon on a lazy Saturday.
