Smart Communications, the leader in mobile, made a groundbreaking move over the weekend as they introduced new video data bundles that will enable more Filipinos to enjoy the best of YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Viewstream, Skype Qik and Dubsmash wherever and whenever they want.
In a fun event last May 8 dubbed “Your 15 Minutes of Fame” at Raven MNL in Taguig, it was revealed that affordable ‘sachets’ of video data are now available to all Smart subscribers to suit their mobile lifestyle and budget.
“This move reinforces Smart’s push to deliver fast, fun and worry-free mobile Internet to serve all the needs of Filipinos – whether to connect with loved ones, access news and information, or enjoy the vast wealth of enriching and entertaining online content,” said Michele Curran, First Vice President and Head for for Data Services at Smart.
Smart’s affordable packages start with YouTube5, which offers 65MB of data for 15 minutes of standard definition video streaming on mobile phones, valid for one day, for only Php5. Smart will also offer YouTube25, which offers 160MB of data for 35 minutes of standard definition video streaming on mobile phones, valid for one day, for only Php25.
Heavy viewers can enjoy YouTube50, which offers 400MB of data for 90 minutes of standard definition video streaming, valid over three days, for only Php50.
For even greater value-for-money, Smart also offers YouTube199, which provides 270 minutes of standard definition video streaming, valid over 30 days, for only Php199.
Aside from YouTube, subscribers can use these bundles to view their favorite videos on Vimeo, Dailymotion, and Viewstream, exchange quick video messages to friends via Skype Qik, and even create funny lip-synched videos through one of the year’s breakout viral apps, Dubsmash.
To avail of the offer, subscribers can simply text YOUTUBE5; YOUTUBE25; YOUTUBE50; or YOUTUBE199 to 9999. They can also dial *121# – Smart’s easy access number for all promos. Upon successful registration, subscribers will get an instant notification of their subscription, which shall be charged against their prepaid load or billed on top of their monthly service fee.
Once their video data bundle subscription is fully consumed, Smart Prepaid subscribers will be directed to a paywall or receive a notification in order to allow customers to easily manage their budget and service usage.
