by - August 21, 2018

During my childhood days, I remember that the TV used to be my babysitter. My mother would comfortably leave us in front of the TV to go on her chores knowing that we will be quite happy to watch our favorite cartoons for an hour or two. It’s just too bad that we are limited to the kind of programs available then and we have no on-demand programs we can enjoy. But kids nowadays are so lucky to have unlimited access to fun, informative and kid-friendly contents to fill their time worthwhile. Today, kids who love watching tv can also enjoy it thru digital content.

Last August 18, 2018, Discovery Kids, a mobile subscription service for kids, makes its international debut officially in the Philippines, in partnership with the country’s leading telco and digital services provider, PLDT Inc., and its wireless subsidiary, Smart Communications. It was held at the Manila House Private at BGC where kids with their invited parents gets to experience first-hand what the app is all about. The Discovery Kids app will also be launching in Singapore later this month.

On the other hand, Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Business Market Development for PLDT and Smart Oscar A.
