Smart's partnership with other brands just keeps on growing, getting bigger and getting better. A couple of days ago, Smart and ABS CBN have officially partnered up for the iWantTV deal. iWant TV is an online-based streaming service of the Kapamilya network where previous and current shows are watched including blockbuster movies and exclusive content. This team up will enable Smart and PLDT users to enjoy content on iWantTV website using their prepaid load and postpaid account soon.

Prior to this collaboration, iWantTV has already been accessible by many Pinoy users who does not have time to catch up on ABS CBN's shows while they are being aired on the network's channel. However, in order for these users to access iWantTV, they either would need to have an ABS-CBN Mobile account or subscribe to a certain cable service provider.

With this Smart-ABS CBN partnership, more and more users will be able to access the website easier and more convenient than ever.

Using iWantTV, subscribers may stream the past and current ABS CBN shows like On the Wings of Love, Dolce Amore, Ang Probinsyano, and 'Til I Met You, as well as News and Current Affairs shows, among many others - anytime and anywhere. 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.

To check out what's in store you and get started with iWant TV, if you are a PLDT Home and Smart user, is simply visit www.iwanttv.com.ph website or download its official mobile app from Google Play or iTunes.

We can expect Smart and ABS CBN to very soon launch new and exciting features and services under this partnership including the ability to log in using our existing mobile number. So stay tuned for future updates on this deal.
