ABS-CBN launches iWantTFC streaming service
ABS-CBN has officially merged its two streaming platforms, iWant TV and TFC Online, into iWantTFC.
The newly-launched iWantTFC is the first Filipino subscription-based streaming service available globally. It offers ad-free access to the biggest library of Filipino video content. It provides first window streaming of its latest teleserye episodes, 48 hours before their premiere on any ABS-CBN platform or channel. However, users in the Philippines can enjoy free on-demand streaming of the latest episodes of currently airing ABS-CBN shows within seven days.
More than that, users can also enjoy new features such as offline viewing of select movies and series, as well as an improved viewing experience on larger screens through select TV brands, including Roku and Telstra TV.
Registered iWantTFC users in the Philippines can choose from three subscription plans: free, standard, and premium. Premium subscription is priced at PHP 119 per month and gives users ad-free access to its entire catalog and all platform features; on the other hand, the standard subscription can be availed at PHP 59 that allows users to watch ad-supported content. However, monthly subscription costs outside the Philippines vary across regions.
Meanwhile, both premium and standard subscribers get full access to iWantTFC’s full library of more than 1,000 movies, live channels such as Kapamilya Channel, TeleRadyo, ANC, CineMo, and Knowledge Channel, ABS-CBN’s full inventory of shows, all acquired content, all episodes of 86 iWantTFC originals, and other digital content.
Users may also opt for the free plan, granting limited access to an ad-supported catalog of movies, live channels, select episodes of shows, and TV series.
iWantTFC’s wide library of regularly updated content includes currently airing ABS-CBN shows, Kapamilya classics, movies, newscasts, lifestyle programs, award-winning documentaries, originals, religious programs, and acquired series from Thailand’s GMMTV. There are also new movies released by CineXpress straight on the platform, including the Star Cinema movies “My Lockdown Romance,” “Boyette,” and “Four Sisters Before the Wedding.” Fans can also continue to follow the ongoing season of “The House Arrest of Us” on iWantTFC. Meanwhile, users in the Philippines can look forward to the Philippine-exclusive streaming of Thai series “Theory of Love” and “The Shipper” this year.
