Listed fiber provider Converge ICT Solutions on Wednesday, July 28, launched Vision, a new entertainment service that would allow users to watch up to 82 TV channels through fiber technology.
Vision was launched in partnership with Pacific KabelNet.
The service comes with a set-top device called the Xperience Box, which has Android TV functionalities and comes with Google Assistant.
The Vision Xperience Box is enabled via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and does not require a cable TV connection.
The add-on is priced at P99 per month for 65 channels and P299 monthly for 82 channels.
“Watching the most popular shows in the Philippines or abroad and accessing content through various apps have never been this effortless,” said Converge chief operations officer Jesus Romero.
Converge clarified that the set-top box will not work with other internet providers.
Customers will also have to pay for the box aside from the add-on service. Users can either pay an outright P2,000 for the box or in installments of P150 per month for 24 months.
New users can apply for the add-on with the same 24-month lock-in period for the internet service.
For existing fiber subscribers in Metro Manila, they can upgrade to have the service through the Vision microsite. A new lock-in period will be implemented for existing users if the Xperience Box will be paid via installments.
Converge product management head Gilbert Virtucio also said the add-on service will not affect subscribers’ internet speed, even for those subscribed to 35 megabits per second.
“Don’t worry. There is a lot of headroom for you to use the add-on in a Converge FiberX service.” – Rappler.com
