The new head of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB), Rachel Arenas, is planning to regulate the movies that are not yet available in cinemas but can be viewed on the internet.
In a report by PhilStar, Arenas said that majority of Filipinos no longer watch movies in cinemas and opt to do it in the comfort of their homes, in front of television sets, computers or even cellular phones. She said that there’s an internet app that allows anybody to access movies and the MTRCB is studying how to regulate this.
Although the name of the app was not mentioned, she said that the movies, although not yet shown in cinemas, could be easily accessed on Netflix or Facebook.
“While there is a body that handles piracy, the MTRCB would like to encourage the people to go to movie houses.” Arenas said.
