Today, Endeavor Streaming has announced its newest partnership with Tap Digital Media Ventures Corp (TapDMV) to launch TapGO TV, the Philippine’s first pure-play subscription streaming service.
This will mark Endeavor Streaming’s entry into the Philippines market with an OTT product showcasing a TV-Everywhere live linear and on-demand subscription platform.
As of today, TapGO TV is available on the web and across a wide range of mobile, tablet, Chromecast and Android TV devices. The service will carry over 40 Live TV channels hailing from the world’s leading Pay Television Networks as well as TapDMV’s owned and operated linear services including Tap Movies, Tap ActionFlix, TapTV, TapSports, Premier Sports, Premier Sports 2, Premier Football and TapEdge.
Through Endeavor Streaming’s Virtual Live Linear (VLL) capabilities, TapGO TV can instantaneously launch Exclusive Signature Channels such as Laff, Crime TV, Comic U, Game Show Central, Tap Movies 2 and Tap ActionFlix 2.
Existing TapGO TV customers are provided with one free month, authenticated access, and new customers can sign up for a variety of different subscription and PPV offers. The service will also feature localized currency, PayPal, credit and debit cards, in-app purchase, and GCash and GrabPay wallets through TapGO TV’s own web store to give customers optionality on how to pay for the service.
“This launch further demonstrates our continued expansion and success in APAC, and we’re delighted to be partnering with a market leader like TapGO TV in the Philippines,” said Peter Bellamy, SVP of Global Sports and International Media and Entertainment at Endeavor Streaming. “We’re excited by the scale of the OTT market in APAC, and we are continuing to see the benefits from our senior hires in 2022, Vinit Mehta in India and Yew Weng Soo in Singapore, delivering great in-market expertise.”
“We’re so excited to launch our new TapGO TV platform, as it will provide Filipinos a new yet familiar take on streaming and consuming video content,” said Bogie de Guia, co-founder and CTO of TapDMV. “OTT and streaming have always been associated with VOD and live event streaming, so our pivot to present content in the familiar form of Live TV is something we feel will appeal to the Filipino audience.”
The Endeavor Streaming business, owned by entertainment, sports and media company Endeavor, has recently enhanced its portfolio in the FAST channel and live e-commerce space with new partnerships with Frequency, and AiBUY.
