During road trips and waiting time on the set, Smart endorser and primetime actress Nadine Lustre lives the Smart Life by tuning into Spinnr for the latest hit songs.
“I always tune into Spinnr for music, especially when I am on long road trips or while waiting between takes,” said Nadine, who delighted the audience with her songs. “But I’m glad to learn about iFlix now, which opens you to a wide range of films and TV series with just a few taps on my phone,” she added, revealing afterwards how she got hooked to the British sci-fi comedy-drama show Misfits.
