Movies-on-Demand at Clickplay PH

As a kid born in the Generation X era, we were used to watching movies in the theater or wait for it’s premiere on the good ‘ol television. Those who can’t wait for the TV release rent or buy the film on VHS, then later on, with the short-lived laser-discs.

Fast forward to the present, it’s now the time of CDs, DVDs, and flashdrives. Moreso with the pick-up of smartphones, more than 30% of Filipinos are now mobile and on the go with easy access to the Internet.

As these numbers continue to rise, entrepremeurs, or should I say technopreneurs, are banking on this trend. One of them is Sherwin Dela Cruz, the man behind ClickPlay Philippines.

Clickplay PH is similar to the Netflix service in the US where they stream movies online directly to the viewers or customers with the “right here, right now” concept; they call this movie-on-demand.

This is something new for the Filipinos as Clickplay.PH is the first movie-on-demand service provider in the Philippines. Aside from lappops and desktop PCs, one can now watch movies on their smartphones and tablets with Internet connection.

After renting a movie, you have 30 days to start watching it. But the moment you start watching, you have 48 hours to finish the movie, and watch it for an unlimited number of times. Moreover, you can register (watch) the movie in up to 3 devices.

For example, you are watching White House Down on your laptop at home and you have to go out with your mom to visit her friend in the hospital. To kill-off this predictably boring escapade, you can continue watching the movie on your smartphone (2nd device) on the same spot where you left off. :)

Check out how we watched a movie on ClickPlay using the Samsung Tab 10.1.
