Smart customers will also be able to avail Lionsgate Play soon.

Meanwhile, de la Cruz celebrated the partnership’s positive impact including more entertainment options for Filipinos.

“From the best love stories to the best of horror down to the most action-packed films and shows, the world’s best content is simply a push of a button away with Lionsgate Play for all new and existing PLDT-powered homes,” de la Cruz concluded.
