WeTV chooses Globe as first Philippine telco partner to bring exclusive Asian content

Latest titles to stream on WeTV

Looking back in the past years, Asian stories are making headlines in different forms of media. But our Eastern tales are best depicted through series and films led by Asian creators. As Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho said, “Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.”

Watching shows and movies these days has been a way to escape reality for many, even for a short moment. With a smorgasbord of K-Dramas, Thai BL, Chinese flix, and Filipino content, viewers have more ways to spend their streaming therapy.

With a mission of showcasing the best Asian contents, streaming platform WeTV partners with Globe as its first telco partner in the Philippines to help bring beloved Chinese, Korean, Thai, and local content to Filipinos. Not only will it present popular Korean dramas, anime, and Boys Love stories, WeTV also offers a great deal of compelling original content viewers will surely fall in love with.

“At Globe, we are committed to bringing Filipinos the best Asian blockbuster movies and hit series,” says Chelo Flores, director for the video and music squad of Get Entertained Tribe. “That’s why we’ve partnered with a new gamechanger in the world of video-on-demand services. We continue to bring the best of Hollywood and local content, and now, we’re bringing in more exciting Asian stories to our loyal customers.”

“WeTV believes in the compelling storytelling powers of Asian countries, and we’re more than happy to bring Filipinos the local and regional shows and movies we all know and love,” Georgette Tengco, WeTV country manager, expresses. “We look forward to working with Globe Telecom in bringing in more amazing content for everyone to enjoy.”
