HOOQ, Asia’s largest Subscription Video-on-Demand (SVOD) service, recently announced its acquisition of the exclusive SVOD rights to the catch-up episodes of Aldub’s first-ever teleserye, Destined to Be Yours, in the Philippines.
“With this new partnership, AlDub fans in the Philippines can stream the latest episode of Destined to be Yours 24 hours after its telecast on GMA 7, plus they can also catch up on all the previous episodes they missed,” says Jane Cruz Walker, country manager of HOOQ.
“Since we announced the highly anticipated first primetime TV series of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, the entire #AlDub nation created such a buzz online that Destined to be Yours was definitely destined to be a hit even before it aired its first episode,” says Judd Gallares, president and COO of GMA New Media, Inc. “
It is currently the most talked about primetime show on Philippine television since it premiered on Feb. 27.
In fact, the pilot episode garnered 22.5 percent ratings on AGB Nielsen NUTAM which is 2.9 percent higher than its rival program. The hashtag for the pilot episode, #DestinedToBeYoursWorldPremiere, also dominated worldwide Twitter trends – garnering 4.4 million tweets from Feb. 26, 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Feb. 28.
Besides having thousands of Hollywood or US movies and TV series, HOOQ is now the prime destination for Filipino entertainment on demand with the largest library of local movies amongst any video-on-demand service in the country.
Destined To Be Yours is the latest addition to the ever growing library of local content available on HOOQ.
HOOQ subscribers can now enjoy over 1,200 Filipino movies spanning almost five decades of film making, and over 4,000 hours of local television leaving other video-in-demand services way behind in terms of Filipino content.
Fans of local TV series can also watch catch up episodes of the latest GMA 7 shows including Meant To Be, Ika-6 na Utos and more in the coming months.
