From starring roles in the country’s most iconic films to thriving music and acting careers, some of the most prominent icons of the Philippine entertainment industry are now part of Southeast Asia’s leading Internet TV service to push forward its plans for original content.
It was APEC week but that didn’t stop me to head over to Salon de Ning at The Peninsula Manila, Makati City to attend iFLIX’s media launch.
Shareholders + Partners
Joining team iFLIX are Iza Calzado, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Ruffa Gutierrez, Raymond Gutierrez, Richard Gutierrez, JM Rodriguez and Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon. This announcement follows a succession of landmark collaborations with industry leaders such as the Philippine Long Distance Company (PLDT), Smart Communications and Samsung Philippines.
The aforementioned celebrity ambassador-investors will not just represent the company as paid endorsers but will also play key roles in jointly developing projects with committed budgets and negotiations with independent local producers and studios.
“At iFLIX, we are committed to working with the best partners in all area from technology and content to marketing and distribution. These partnership with the Philippines’ leading entertainment icons are a testament of this pledge. We look forward to benefiting from their tremendous experiences and wealth of knowledge about the entertainment industry in their role as our advisers,” says Mark Britt, iFLIX group co-founder and CEO.
You know that being an artista is not merely work for these people. This commitment shows their love for the industry brimming with world-class talent. I hope other artists would follow their footsteps.
New iFLIX feature rolled out
On other news the company also announced its support for offline viewing.

So happy because offline viewing to me is a norm and this feature is perfect for Manila traffic haha!
