ABS-CBN merges streaming platforms

ABS-CBN Corp. said Thursday it merged its two streaming platforms to provide entertainment, news and information to Filipinos worldwide.

iWantTFC, which is available through the web on and on iOS and Android apps, allows users to choose from different subscription options with different levels of access to content and new platform features to suit their needs.

Aside from offering ad-free access to the biggest library of Filipino video content, the new iWantTFC provides first window streaming of fresh teleserye episodes, 48 hours before they premiere on any ABS-CBN platform or channel.

Users in the Philippines, meanwhile, can enjoy free on-demand streaming of the latest episodes of ABS-CBN shows within seven days.

iWantTFC users are also able to enjoy new features such as offline viewing of select movies and series and an enhanced viewing experience on bigger screens through select TV brands, Roku and Telstra TV.

Registered iWantTFC users in the Philippines can choose from three subscription plans—free, standard and premium.

Premium subscription costs P119 monthly and gives users ad-free access to its entire catalogue and all platform features, while standard subscription can be availed at P59 and allows users to watch ad-supported content. However, monthly subscription prices for iWantTFC users outside of the Philippines vary across territories.

Both premium and standard subscribers get full access to iWantTFC’s full library of over 1,000 movies, live channels namely Kapamilya Channel, TeleRadyo, ANC, CineMo, and Knowledge Channel, ABS-CBN’s full inventory of shows, all acquired content, all episodes of 86 iWantTFC originals and other digital content.

Users can also opt for the free plan, which will grant limited access to an ad-supported catalog of movies, live channels, select episodes of shows and teleseryes.
