Viva launched Vivamax last January 29 to fulfill company boss Vic del Rosario’s dream to bring entertainment directly to Filipinos anytime, anywhere.
The presence of global streaming platforms and local broadcast and telecommunication giants did not deter Boss Vic from pursuing his vision.
Six months later, Vivamax is on its way to becoming an essential part of every Pinoy’s entertainment fix.
To date there are 600,000 Vivamax subscribers.
It is now the Number 1 entertainment app on Google Play, outdoing other long established local and international streaming brands.
Starting with over 500 titles, with a mix of Filipino content, Tagalized Hollywood and Asian content (including the biggest Korean blockbusters), Vivamax continues with its commitment to add at least 15 new content every week.
Priced at P149 per month, with TV casting on Smart TV via Chromecast or Apple AirPlay, the cost of unlimited viewing entertainment has never been this affordable to anyone.
Since its launch, Vivamax has featured originally-produced series, movies, documentaries, concerts starring some of the brightest and most exciting stars in the industry.
