Netflix has entered into a partnership with Globe Telecom, to provide access to viewers the Philippine telco’s mobile or broadband service.

Globe customers will be able to subscribe to Netflix through Globe, and enjoy its content anytime, anywhere, on nearly any internet-connect screen, while conveniently charging the monthly subscription to their Globe mobile or broadband accounts.

“The Filipino’s swift adaption to the digital lifestyle and our shift to smartphones also changed the way we enjoy entertainment,” said Globe chief commercial officer Albert de Larrazabal.

“Our partnership with Netflix gives us this extensive library that will allow us to give our customers their much-awaited TV and movie titles whether they are at home or on-the-go,” said Larrazabal.

Tony Zameczkowski, Netflix VP of business development in Asia Pacific, said Netflix content is now available to over 81 million members in 190 countries.

“Our partnership with Globe brings us closer to consumers who love entertainment and enables us to connect even more Filipinos to our top-quality Netflix original shows and movies like Marvel’s Daredevil, Orange is The New Black, Narcos and many more,” said Zameczkowski.

Netflix will also soon be available to customers on Globe’s new customized Broadband plans. Customers can now mix and match their preferred internet speeds that can be bundled with access to  content and entertainment devices ranging from smart HD TVs, speakers, streaming devices, gaming consoles and even security cameras.
