Last February 4, video-on-demand service HOOQ welcomed the lunar year of the fire rooster by treating attendees to a special screening of Mano Po 7: Chinoy at the Globe Iconic Store in Bonifacio Global City.
Though there was a lack of round fruits and red apparel, HOOQ more than
made up for it by incorporating other Chinese traditions (such as a dragon
dance) as well as the announcement that it will be the first place to view
local movies after their initial theatrical release. Jean Garcia and Richard
Yap, who are part of the cast of Mano Po
7, made a special appearance at the event as well.
Mano Po 7: Chinoy, which was shown in theaters last December, is just one of many films that will soon be available to HOOQ subscribers. Among others, titles such as I Love You to Death, Camp Sawi,ÃÂ My Rebound Girl and MMFF entries Die Beautiful and KabiseraÃÂ will also be available in the near future.
And if watching Filipino movies doesn't even cut into your free time, HOOQ is also the place where you can catch up on the latest in local television. Shows such as GMA 7's Ika-Anim na Utos, Someone to Watch Over Me, and Meant to Be are already available for viewing and will soon be joined by other programs to come (like Erik Matti's upcoming On the Job: The Series, which will be exclusive to HOOQ).So if you want to support local content and stay up-to-date on your favorite movies and shows, check out HOOQ's official website for a 7-day free trial.
