Converge offers home entertainment service


CONVERGE ICT Solutions, Inc. announced on Wednesday its new add-on service called Vision that provides new and existing subscribers with access to local and international television channels.

“In partnership with Pacific Kabelnet Holding Co. Inc. (PKN), an affiliate cable company, this latest offering gives new and existing Converge subscribers access to local and international TV channels and binge-watch shows from exclusive channels like USA Today News, USA Today Sports, Pocketwatch, and Ryan and Friends, using fiber technology,” Converge said in a statement.

Converge said Vision comes with a set-to-box called Xperience Box, a full Android, all-in-one entertainment device that allows subscribers to experience multi-genre TV programs and shows.

The device “does not require connectivity to any cable TV line and also allows easy connection to a mouse, gamepad, keypad, and other devices,” Converge noted.

“This easy-to-set-up service comes with reliable security features and an enhanced artificial intelligence that provides a quick, one-click access to channels, Google apps, online games, and OTT apps like HBO Go, Amazon Prime, YouTube and Spotify,” it added.

Converge Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Anthony H. Uy said, “Vision is just the first of many additional services we plan to bring to enhance Filipinos’ digital experience as we build our digital highway.”

“With our recent data capacity upgrade of our metro backbone, we have more than enough bandwidth to provide entertainment content on a streaming platform and other applications,” he added.
