Last Monday, October 19, PLDT myDSL launched their Watchpad, which, as techie says, â€œif everything pans out according to plan, can very well be one of the Philippinesâ€™ biggest steps towards Internet TV.â€
Basically, PLDT myDSL Watchpad is a hub where you can get your entertainment fix, asap. Apart from your favorite websites and blogs, subscribers can watch movies and shows and play games for free. If you donâ€™t have cable, thatâ€™s alright; they have a formidable line up of channels that include CNN, Animax, Pinoy Box Office, National Geographic and E! to name a few. So thereâ€™s your internet connection and the best of television in one go.
But even better: Watchpad has new shows, exclusive music videos, movies, and exclusive blogs in store for their subscribers. Youâ€™d think they were out to kill cable tvâ€¦and what little life we still have. But thatâ€™s getting ahead of the story. While Rhian Ramosâ€™s blog is enough to make us subscribe, (it's exclusive on Watchpad, mind), there are a few other things on PLDT myDSL Watchpad enough to make us sweat like mad. Films by 2009 Cannes Awardee Brillante Mendoza are now available for screening. An entertainment chat show hosted by local entertainment media bigshots Ricky Lo, Shirley Pizarro, Isah Red, and Dolly Ann Carvajal promises to keep everyone, especially those abroad, posted on everything and anything showbiz. The lifestyle show hosted by the sweet-looking than Isabel Oli looks like something you and your girl can enjoy.
Which got us looking around the internet for television shows. Check out the best three that caught our attention:
