I’ve tried the myDSL Watchpad before during the last Pacquiao fight and it didn’t really worked nicely. I was told that they’ve gathered all the feedback and have corrected the system accordingly. This time around, PLDT hopes to redeem itself by offering the live online streaming for free to all myDSL subscribers.

    A friend of mine told me that it’s not worth it. Well, I haven’t tried it cause you can always watch it on tv. By the way, I saw you Yuga. You’re on tv! Hehe!

    The program fails to install with Windows 7.

    naku eto na naman tong watchpad before lang yung fight ok ang stream ng mga palabas pagdating nung event mismo they fail miserably as in.. buti nalang me back up ako nung laban niya with cotto, they just want to have new subscriber kaya ganyan..

    “it didn’t really worked nicely”

    MWAHAHAHA, what an understatement. Ay advertiser na nga pala dito. ;)

    I don’t think they have subjected the watchpad through massive traffic generated testing. Streaming through sites like Justin.tv was better to think that these sites are accessed by more viewers. And before attempting another pacman fight, which could result to the dissapointment similar to the last fight, they should have showcased similar viewings to test if they are indeed ready, (opening and closing of the winter olympics for example).

    Haayy sana maging efficient na sila this time, pero back up nalang sa pay per view kaysa mainis ka imbes na maexcite ka sa laban

    Mas okay pa nga ang Stream sa SOPCAST libre na hindi pa sira… I doubt kung maging okay yang watchpad this time baka hindi kayanin ng system nila. Tsaka may problem sa Terms and Conditions pag nagregister kasi anytime in the future pagnaisipan ng pldt magcharge ng fee eh automatic ka na malagyan ng charge sa bill mo kaya beware guys.

    I sure hope they’ll hit the spot this time, we all know what happened the last time they advertise the Pacquiao – Cotto fight. It was a knockout on PLDTs part.

    There’s no harm in trying, since watchpad is free to MY DSL subscribers… unless they changed that already… hmm….

    at least merong ganyan offer ang pldt,, unlike sa globe broadband.. im paying 2k a month,, ala man lang offer maski ugn free wireless router nila..

  14. onealberto says:

    i doubt it if makakasurvive ang watchpad na yan. sa sobrang dami ng traffic baka bumigay ang system. masakit sa ulo pag nagbabuffer. nakakawalang gana.

  15. IC DeaDPiPoL says:

    too bad I can’t watch it since it requires Windows Media Player (already shifted to Linux Mint) unless I try it with Wine. (test it later)

  16. StrayArrow says:

    ooops….. there are a lot of ways to watch the fight and some are more reliable…. a lot are also free….

  17. Edgar says:

    Whoa! Hope this time “I’ll be sweeter”, as the song goes. Last time I heard, heavy traffic scored a knockout on this service.

  18. simplynice93 says:

    Maybe they should include the sentence: “Service Guaranteed or Get Your Money Back!” Maybe..just maybe people will believe they can deliver.

  19. hitch says:

    parehas sila ng logo ng sandbox ung fight nila..

  20. AdRiaN says:

    sana nga maging maganda ang streaming ng laban.. para hndi na ulit ako mag DL ng kung ano anong software.. pangit din kc manood sa TV 3hr amf!

  21. steph says:

    aww, i read about your watchpad experience during the last fight. i hope pldt redeems itself. im planning to watch it via watchpad. if it fails, where else can i watch its livestream?

  22. webhostph says:

    marami na nagsbe nyan that when they subscribe, they didn’t get what pldt has promised. umasa lng daw sila.. —

    as for me, what i do is to lock myself in the room watching the regular telecast and no changing in news channels. even delayed i still feel it is the live broadcast haha — crazy me lol

  23. Jayson says:

    mine is running smooth, i am just afraid for tomorrow from the live sreaming itself. Hopefully it will work fine already unlike last November grrrr.

  24. mannylover says:

    Mga kababayan koh! Panoorin natin ang laban ni Pacman LIVE!
    Pwede ninyong mapanood dito, live, at wala pang bayad.
    May ginawa lang akong survey tapos nag stream na kaagad.
    Ano pa ang hinihintay nyo? Manood natayo

  25. Joey says:

    Totally sucked.

    Registered as required and I am a MyDSL 1299 subscriber.

    Logged in before the fight and it was already choppy with significant lag/buffering time.

    Got out for a bit and have not been able to log back in. Error messages and the WatchPad app keeps on crashing.

    Really crappy customer experience; PLDT shouldn’t even have tried this.

  26. moonshines says:

    what more can you expect from pldtdsl? nothing but sorry ass excuses as well lies in advertising. Gma 7 suck big time as well. i wont pay a penny just to watch this fight. its cramped!

  27. Hayee says:

    Its now start of the Pacman Fight at PLDT Watchpad…

  28. Joey says:


    I have to take back my last comment. Was finally able to get into WatchPad and it worked fine!

    Resolution wasn’t best but the streaming was fine without any buffering or stops/

    Props to PLDT. Worked this time!

  29. Karen says:

    Very unreliable! It didn’t work again just like in the fight against Cotto!

  30. Enid Guzy says:

    Pacquiao Fight – Dont believe the fight lasted 12 rounds – fantastic fight though:-)

  31. weak says:

    ang baho ng watchpad. amoy taee.
