Prior to the official launch, PLDT Home subscribers received an email advisory that the Lionsgate Play is now available for streaming.
“Our endeavor has been to ensure viewers are provided with a curated lineup of great content, spread across genres for the best viewing experience,” said Amit Dhanuka, executive vice president, Lionsgate. “We are reaching out to a large and diverse sector of consumers with a digitally driven offering enabling them to ‘play more, browse less.”
Among the titles available on Lionsgate Play are “American Gods,” “Outlander,” and “The Walking Dead,” for TV shows and “Firebird,” “Minari, and “Judy,” among others.
By simply subscribing to a PLDT Home Fiber Plan 1699 or up, viewers in the Philippines can enjoy and experience the best of global content across action, comedy, drama, horror, and thriller genres — and more of Lionsgate Play’s signature offerings from the comfort of one’s home.
Now available locally through Lionsgate Play is the critically acclaimed drama “Gaslit,” starring Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, and Dan Stevens. The new series spotlights Martha Mitchell (Roberts), wife of former US President Nixon’s Attorney General John N. Mitchell, discovering the full extent of the Watergate scandal in the 70s.
The streaming service also carries some of Lionsgate’s most iconic and groundbreaking series such as “Mad Men,” a multiple Emmy and Golden Globe-winning period drama starring Jon Hamm that’s widely considered to be one of the greatest TV shows of all time; and “The Royals,” a drama chronicling the tradition, opulence, and scandal that surrounds a fictional modern-day royal family.
Lionsgate Play also gives PLDT Home subscribers first dibs on the hottest new shows including “Becoming Elizabeth,” which chronicles Elizabeth I’s rise to power and all the intrigue and betrayal that came with becoming the Virgin Queen.
In time for the Philippine launch of the streaming service, both existing and new subscribers of PLDT Home Fibr Plans 1699 and up will be given exclusive access to Lionsgate Play without the additional charges until June 1, 2023.
