Huge news today for people who want to cut the cord: PLDT Home and Smart Communications have teamed up with ABS-CBN for their iWant TV streaming service. While the service was previously free, only premium users who registered using their ABS-CBN Mobile accounts could access the exclusive content in the streaming service, which included full episodes of popular telenovelas, as well as a substantial catalog of both local and international films.

This latest deal is set to further expand the widest breadth of digital content available to PLDT Home and Smart subscribers, as well as bolster the group’s thrust to deliver converged services that offer an unrivaled digital experience for Filipinos.
