Davao becomes the latest region in the country to experience the superior brand of entertainment from SKY as the leading cable and broadband provider launches its newest products, One SKY and SKYdirect.

Filipino families can now enjoy the convenience and premium entertainment brought by One SKY, an all-in-one subscription plan that integrates its suite of internet, cable, and video-on-demand services for a more enriching digital entertainment experience. Subscribers can choose between premium or lite plans.

One SKY Premium plans provide families with access to  high-speed internet with 8Mbps to 64Mbps and unlimited data allowance from SKYbroadband, premium HD cable TV from SKYcable, and cable shows on  the go with SKYmobi.

One SKY Lite Plans, meanwhile, offer fast internet ranging from 4Mbps to 8Mbps with consumable data allowance of at least 20GB plus HD cable TV and a provision to add mobile internet.

SKYcable channel line-up includes favorite and top-rating channels such as ABS-CBN HD, ANC HD, S+A HD, HBO HD, RTL-CBS Entertainment HD, Cartoon Network HD, and Disney HD, among others.

To complete the One SKY experience, SKY’s mobile internet service, can be added to the subscription.  SKYmobi provides families with easy access to cable TV shows anytime, anywhere through SKY On Demand, the online platform for live and on-demand video streaming of cable shows and movies.

One SKY Premium Plans start at Php1,599/month while ONE SKY Lite Plans begin with a Php699 monthly service fee.

“SKY recognizes the changing habits of the Filipino family, as well as their increasing reliance on internet connectivity for their daily activities. One SKY is a bundle that offers a seamless connected experience to families through only one subscription,” March Ventosa, SKY Cable Chief Operating Officer said.

The launch of One SKY marks SKY Cable’s foray into convergent services for Filipinos in the evolving digital media landscape.  As an ABS-CBN company, SKY Cable’s introduction of One SKY also complements ABS-CBN’s transformation into an agile digital company.

SKY’s consumer products business unit head Claudia Suarez says that both One SKY plans aim to make internet and cable access available to a greater number of Filipino families.

“Access to the internet is becoming an important fixture in any Filipino household in the digital era apart from cable TV. One SKY can address the evolving digital lifestyle of families because it brings together affordability and superior entertainment into one convenient plan,” Suarez added.

Families also have an option to enhance their One SKY subscription plan by adding channels individually or in packs via SKY Select and availing of monthly pay-per-view offers. One SKY plans also grant subscribers exclusive access to HBO GO, HBO’s video-on-demand platform exclusively available in the Philippines through SKY, where viewers can explore HBO’s diverse show lineup including “Westworld” and “Game of Thrones” shortly after an episode premieres.

Meanwhile, families who live in far-flung areas in Davao can have access to the best content through SKYdirect, SKY’s direct-to-home pay TV service. Similar to SKYcable, SKYdirect showcases a mix of foreign and local cable channels including ABS-CBN HD, DZMM TeleRadyo, Knowledge Channel, Myx, Lifestyle, Tagalized Movie Channel (TMC), HBO HD, History HD, AXN HD, NBA Premium HD, Nickelodeon, Warner TV HD, and TLC, among others. Option to subscribe to pay-per-view offerings are also available to SKYdirect subscribers as well as free monthly movie marathons. SKYdirect’s prepaid plans are available beginning at P99, while its postpaid plans start at P250/month.
