There’s finally local content for iflix in the PH!

We’ve been pretty excited for Internet TV service, iflix, ever since we heard that they were entering the market. The promise of having access to hours upon hours of TV shows and movies was definitely a godsend in a region that has gone unnoticed with such a service. They have been adding more and more to their library ever since they launched in May to make sure they provide their subscribers with more reasons to come back by partnering up with studios. It was only a matter of time ‘till they went local and this week, they’ve just announced a partnership with local TV network, GMA 7.

The partnership between iflix and GMA 7 will introduce some of the popular shows the network has, such as: My Husband’s Lover, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, and Amaya, along with some of GMA’s News documentaries. We can also expect iflix to add some of the notable films from the network like: Jose Rizal and Muro Ami, plus a bevy of recent titles as well.

This collaboration, GMA will also be able to offer iflix subscribers Catch Up TV, a concept that is the first of its kind in the region. Catch Up TV will soon be able to give subscribers the ability to watch new episodes of shows they watch seven days after it has been aired locally.

“Our partnership with GMA is key in our commitment to providing our members with the best in local and international entertainment. The addition of GMA content is a testament to that promise in delivering the best in Philippine content to our members across the Southeast Asian region.” SherwinDela Cruz, iflix Philippines Country Manager. The partnership between iflix and GMA 7 is incredible news for subscribers and is a clear cut sign of the company’s dedication to bring even more content to the people who choose to spend some of their hard earned money towards their subscription fee. This leaves us wondering what else iflix has in store in the future. Perhaps now that they’re partnered with GMA 7, we could recommend that they compile and stream all the #Aldub episodes on EatBulaga. Wouldn’t that be a laugh and a half?

  1. But will it carry the unedited version of My Husband’s Lover where the finale actually showed Tom and Dennis kissing?

  2. Yuck. Kaya nga ako nag-iflix para makawala sa cheap repetitive local shows at makapanood ng bagong ideas tapos ilalagay pa rin nila tong bloatprograms na ito? Dinagdagan na lang sana nila ng latest anime shows. Good job iflix you made me want to unsubscribe to your service.

    1. haha ano problema sir? tatanggalin rin ba nila ang mga sophisticated mong mga palabas para malagay yung mga local shows? pwede mo naman yatang iwasan yung local shows. on-demand nga daw eh. hindi naman yata masama kung subukang palawakin ng iflix ang potential customers nila

  3. Kung ayaw mo edi wag kanang magcomment maririnig ka ba nila? nakakatawa ka para kang hotdog ni spongebob

    1. Bobo siguradong malalaman ng iflix ang sinabi ko dahil may marketing body sila na inaalam ang opinion ng mga tao tungkol sa kanilang product. Antanga naman nila kung may article sa iflix at di nila binabantayan ang reaction ng mga tao. Uulitin ko iflix ang cheap ng move ninyo. Di nyo ako mapapabayad ng service ninyo kung gagawin nyong extension ng local tv ang magandang structure nyo.

      1. @Archie, ikaw ang bobo. Kung di ka magbabayad sa service nila di ka kawalan. Of course aalamin nila positive or negative man coz that business they need to know the feedback. Hindi nila tatanggalin yan dahil lang sa reklamo lang ng iilan lalo sa sa tulad mo makitid ang tutak.!

      2. @Archie aba loko buksan mo yung iflix tapos takpan mo mata mo bobo. Pinanganak ka pa ng nanay mo para kang si vice ganda mahilig lang magpatawa pero tgnan mo itsura nya bading na kabayo ang loko

  4. Listen to me, people. Kahit nandiyan ang mga “telebabad” ng 7, WAG NIYO NA LANG GALAWIN O PANSININ KUNG AYAW NINYO. There is clearly a demand for local programming in these services, and iFlix was very clear that it will integrate local programming from its country “partners” in its portfolio. I mean, sa Malaysia mga TV series nila malamang sa hindi nasa iFlix din, why should we be any different?!

    This does not diminish the fact that iFlix has a significantly better global portfolio of TV Series. I mean, kung ayaw niyo talaga ng “My Husband’s Lover” huwag na lang pansinin, manuod na lang kayo ng “Attack on Titan,” o!

    Don’t make it appear that this will be the downfall of iFlix because you can easily forget this.
