More Filipinos will be able to enjoy a painless commuting experience offered by TVplus Go as it becomes available in CLiQQ Shop, a 7-Eleven E-commerce arm. ABS-CBN signed a distribution partnership for TVplus Go with Gate Distribution Enterprise Inc. and Philippine Seven Corporation.
TVplus Go is a mobile TV application delivered via an antenna-equipped USB dongle, and works with USB-OTG Android phones, with a micro USB port (type-C port may function using a micro USB-OTG adaptor with data support) and a few other base specifications – Android 5.0 operating system or higher, 1GB RAM or higher, and a dual-core processor or higher.
With the partnership, customers can order TVplus Go via cliqqshop.com, and pick-up their devices at their most convenient 7-Eleven store. Lead time for delivery is three- to five-days for Metro Manila, and five- to seven days for Luzon branches. Customers can easily pick up their orders as they go to and from work. The addition of CLIQQ Shop/7-Eleven is expected to give commuters tmore accessible and convenient points of purchase.
“In line with ABS-CBN’s vision of being in the service of the Filipino, the ABS-CBN TVplus Go allows our Kapamilyas who spend hours in traffic, lining up in transport terminals or in the train stations every day, to be able to watch their favorite TV shows, live as they air while on the go and without needing to spend data to watch. With ABS-CBN TVplus Go we hope to provide moments of entertainment to ease the discomfort of their daily commute struggle,” Zenon Isaac, Head of Marketing for Mobile Services of ABS-CBN stated.
Trisha Pascual, General Manager of Gate Distribution, said “The CLiQQ facility is available 24/7 so customers can actually purchase TVplus Go through the CLiQQ shop anytime of the day.”
Customers can opt to use their CliQQ wallet in paying their units as well as their 7-Eleven rewards points or cash on delivery. They can just choose which store they want it to be delivered which is initially in 1739 stores in Metro Manila and Luzon, 89% of which are in the Digital TV service area of TVplus Go. An SMS will be sent to the customer if it is ready for pick up in their chosen store.
Availability of TVplus Go units through CLiQQ Shop will also be expanded in Visayas and Mindanao regions next year.
