Legions of Filipino K-pop fans will now have something new to tune into every week as mobile services provider Smart is set to launch the exclusive streaming of M Countdown playing the hottest K-pop songs from their favorite groups live from South Korea.

M Countdown is an iconic K-POP chart show provided by Korea’s leading music channel Mnet. Smart subscribers will now find out, in real time, which songs rule the charts and how long these chart-toppers get to sit on the countdown throne as the M Countdown presents chart-topping K-pop music, as well as new singles and comebacks.

Smart is streaming the K-Life on the Gigafest.Smart starting yesterday (Jan. 21), and will air the show live every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. with replays at 9:00 p.m..

Smart subscribers will be able to enjoy special features such as multi-view experience, which allows them to watch the event through different angles, including angles locked on their favorite K-pop group member.

M Countdown will also be available on Colours every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. starting Jan. 28 featuring the episode of the previous week.

Bringing the M Countdown to Filipino K-pop fans is part of Smart’s efforts to bring the K-Life closer to them, like with GIGA K-Video 99. This promo comes with seven-day free Viu premium subscription to K-shows such as dramas, variety shows, and news streaming in content provider Viu, 1 GB for Viu and YouTube every day, and 2 GB of open-access data, all for seven days.
