It was only last year that PLDT and Roku formed a partnership. We now get to see the first of the many fruits of their labor. PLDT Home finally launched Asia’s FIRST Roku Powered TVolution!

In a recent event at the Shangri-La at the Fort, PLDT Home launched the new device alongside various other services such as the Whole Home WiFi Plan and the V-Fibr Plan. Enough about those services for now since I’m focused on what PLDT and Roku brings to the table.

What is the Roku Powered TVolution?

In case you haven’t heard, Roku makes some of the most robust video streaming devices in the world! In fact, they made one of the first devices in the Roku Streaming Player back in 2008!

With that in mind, the Roku Powered TVolution takes the power and expertise of Roku with the quality content that PLDT Home provides. It offers easy access to three of the most popular video services in the world:

  • Netflixwith its wide selection of blockbuster movies and exclusive original content
  • iFlix, a well-known video streaming service for emerging markets
  • YouTube, the most popular video streaming website on the planet
  • Cignal TV, the country’s premier DTH satellite provider

Thanks to the great video content that PLDT Home provides and Roku’s streaming player expertise, the Roku Powered TVolution will surely be a must-have device for the home!

Existing PLDT Home Fibr subscribers can enjoy the new device first with a bundle that consists of the following:

  • The PLDT Home Roku Powered TVolution device
  • A trial of the Cignal HD TV Plan 1590
  • iFlix subscription

For me, this bundle is a great deal especially for families who watch A LOT of video at home. For more info on this and all the other things they launched, you can check it out HERE.

I’m personally excited for this device and hopefully I can get one in for review. Do you watch a lot of internet video at home? Are you excited for this? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
