In its commitment to elevating its customers’ entertainment experience, leading mobile brand Globe Telecom officially announces its move to change the entertainment landscape through the launch of its extensive lineup of productions that customers can participate in, enjoy, immerse, and express themselves in.


“We wanted to give our customers more ways to enjoy life, so we ventured into staging entertainment productions that goes beyond the smartphone screen with the establishment of Globe LIVE and Globe Studios” shares Globe Chief Commercial Officer Albert de Larrazabal. “Globe is all about creating experiences, and we are simply taking the experience further by going beyond the virtual and giving our customers the opportunity to experience entertainment wherever they are, whether in film, digital or in real life. We intend to elevate the quality of entertainment in the country. There’s a boundless supply of great talent in the Philippines, and with it potentially comes great movies, theater, and other exciting content to enjoy” adds de Larrazabal.

Globe Prepaid Brand Director Popo Yambao shares how the new Globe GoWATCH enables and transforms enjoyment of content on mobile.

Given these original content, the company underscores the importance of the hard work that goes behind the scenes and how content piracy affects the livelihood of men and women in the entertainment industry. Hence the company introduced its advocacy #PlayItRight. With all this content and entertainment productions Globe has in line comes the responsibility of educating its customers of the hard work that goes behind the scenes. Their hard work deserves all the respect, and the campaign aims to shed light on real life stories of people behind the entertainment we consume, in the hopes of encouraging customers to enjoy content from legitimate sources.


This year, Globe is pulling out all the stops with four musical productions under its belt. Its musical run already began with the adaptation of Disney’s Newsies, which started last July 7, 2016 at the Globe ICONIC Store and will run on all weekends of July. In August and September, Globe is co-producing the international tours of of the award-winning titles West Side Story from August 10 to 27 and the West End production of The Sound of Music from September 27 to October 15 both at The Theater at Solaire. Capping off 2017 will be the restaging of Menken & Ahren’s A Christmas Carol in December.

Create. The Rush Within. #NowPlayingEverywhere

Apart from live productions, Globe has also ventured into producing original video series and films through Globe Studios. In recognition of the local independent film scene, Globe Studios launched the first-ever online film fest the Globe Independent Film Festival to fuel creativity among aspiring local filmmakers. Globe has also collaborated with HOOQ to bring the most-awaited, star-studded series, On The Job (OTJ), a spin-off from the original On The Job blockbuster hit by Erik Matti.
