PLDT Global unit PLDT Malaysia has signed a partnership agreement with iflix to enable PGC subscribers in Malaysia to enjoy iflix's library of content wherever they are in the country.

"Committed to serving the overseas Filipino workers and migrants not only in Malaysia but the rest of the world as well, PGC has gone beyond providing affordable call, SMS, data, and other value-added services," PLDT EVP Eric Alberto said.

"This partnership with iflix will enrich our data package offering with compelling content,” added Alberto. “In the near future, we will be rolling out amazing data-centric packages not only in Malaysia but all the other PLDT mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) services around the world.”

To obtain the iflix internet TV service, OFWs in Malaysia can avail of the reasonably-priced new data plans starting at 3 Malaysian ringgits (RM3) per day.  

"This partnership with iflix will enable our subscribers in Malaysia to watch unlimited entertainment wherever they are across the broadest range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, as well as television," said PLDT Malaysia CEO John Gregory Y. Palanca.

Earlier this year, the PLDT HOME and Smart Communications have also launched an exclusive partnership with iflix, delivering unlimited entertainment to families and individuals wherever they are across a broad range of devices.
