There are a few local streaming services currently available in the Philippines and the latest one that we’ve tried and used is Blink. We got a 30-day pass from them a couple of weeks ago and been using it to watch some of our favorite TV series.
They also have an iOS and Android app you can download and use to stream content. As of this article, Blink has around 288 HD movies on their catalog and 33 TV shows which includes some of our favorites shows (Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, Fringe, Marvel Anime: X-Men among others).
There are some missing ones we wished were also on their list — like Supernatural, Grimm, The 100 and Resurrection.
Creating an account is quick and can be done on the website or directly in the app (there’s also authentication via Facebook) and if you want you watch a movie, it’s Php170 per title (which you can pay via credit card, debit card, prepaid, GCash or Paypal).
Movie playback comes with some restrictions though.
This movie will be available to you for 7 days. You will have 48 hours to watch upon clicking PLAY. You may only stream within the Republic of the Philippines.
If you want to watch any of the TV series, there’s a monthly subscription fee of Php450 for 30 days.
The movies would have been worth it if the selection were more recent but we guess it’s a distribution rights issue. As for the TV series, if the available titles in the catalog are sufficient, the Php450 monthly rate seems fair enough.
