Smart Communications announced a partnership with internet entertainment service Netflix, allowing Smart Postpaid subscribers to now conveniently charge their monthly Netflix subscription to their Smart Postpaid bill.
"We are delighted to provide an easy, convenient payment method for Netflix fans in the Philippines. By having their Netflix subscription billed directly through their Smart Postpaid bill, customers will only need to manage one combined payment every month, which can be made using cash or credit card. Enjoy streaming your favorite Netflix shows seamlessly powered by the data-packed GigaX Plans and the country’s fastest LTE network Smart LTE,” said PLDT and Smart head for Consumer Marketing Andrew L. Santos.
According to Tony Zameczkowski, Netflix Vice President of Business Development for Asia Pacific, “We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Smart to bring more convenience and joy to our Filipino fans. By paying through their postpaid bill, even more Filipinos can enjoy our amazing library of TV series, documentaries, and feature films. They can do so at any time, anywhere, and on any internet-connected screen; whether they stream it or download to view later; and all without commercials or commitments.”
Bringing “The Christmas Chronicles” to life with The Epic Christmas Hunt
Catch the highlights of the Epic Christmas Hunt challenge by Smart and Netflix
To mark this partnership, Smart has also teamed up with Netflix to bring to life the Netflix Original film, “The Christmas Chronicles” in the form of an epic Christmas Hunt challenge for celebrities and lucky Smart subscribers.
The film, produced by Chris Columbus and directed by Clay Kaytis, is a feel-good family flick that tells the story of Santa Claus, played by Kurt Russell, who goes on a fun adventure with two siblings who crashed his sleigh.
Smart and Netflix recreated the magical winter setting of “The Christmas Chronicles” and mounted The Epic Christmas Hunt challenge at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium. They pitted three groups, comprising lucky Smart subscribers and their celebrity-teammates - DJ Gino Quillamor, Trina Guytingco, and Katz Salao - against each other. To win, teams needed to be the first to complete seven exciting challenges hidden in various “continents” around the mall.
The holiday season is the perfect time for Smart subscribers to enjoy other Netflix featured holiday titles, including “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle,” “The Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding,” and “The Holiday Calendar.” It’s also the perfect time to catch up on critically-acclaimed Netflix series, including “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” and “The Last Kingdom”, among many others.
