More Filipino consumers, particularly those in the millennial generation, are starting to enjoy their favorite television shows and movies on their computers and mobile devices whether within the comforts of their own home or on-the-go. The only problem that could concern them when it comes to binge-watching is that either they cannot afford to continue streaming their own choices of entertainment or their mobile data allowance is too much for them to try considering that watching movies and TV shows online require a huge chunk of data regardless of the quality. 

This is where the local telecommunications industry comes in, offering a sleuth of new offerings that can provide subscribers worry-free access to any of their favorite online streaming services peppered with data allocation that can be consumed only for video streaming. The best thing about these new offers is that they can be used as add-ons to available prepaid data plans which best cater to binge-watch lovers.

Perhaps the most interesting among these new offers is Globe Telecom's GoWATCH where mobile users can start watching their favorites at just Php29 giving them 2 GB of data consumable for video streaming valid for only a day. In my own case, that much data is enough for anyone to watch episodes of their anticipated anime or Korean drama, favorite music and viral videos on YouTube, and a movie on HOOQ in standard definition quality in a matter of hours. Binge lovers need to register first to any of their preferred Globe GoSURF mobile internet promos before enjoying hours of worry-free entertainment on their mobile devices starting with GoSURF 50. Oh, and premium subscription is needed on some sites if you want to extend your viewing habits.

With Globe's GoWATCH and Smart's Video Prime where mobile users enjoy free access to iflix and iWantv bundled with mobile data consumable for streaming, it is assumed that Filipino millennials will enjoy the efforts of local telcos to improve their digital lifestyle experience with these new offers and it will be clear that binge-watching will remain a trend that every Filipino pop culture fan will love and enjoy in the near future.
