Since sem break is fast approaching, the kids and that one kid at heart will have a grand time watching their favorite cartoons starting this month at HOOQ #KIDSONHOOQ as Asia’s pioneering video on demand service showcased its massive collection of family-friendly titles and animated series at the third HOOQ Hangouts. Isnt that fun? I am now choosing on what to download since its bonding time with the kids. I trimmed down my list to Finn's favorites and its all available on HOOQ!
We had the privilege of watching the pre-halloween screening of HOOQ's Monster House (at the third HOOQ Hangouts). last October 21 at Globe Iconic Store BGC Ampitheatre and it was fun with my kid who came in his favorite costume character Angry Bird. We went home toting loot bags with tshirts, chcolates and candies. Annika Brown and Calvin Uy won the Best Halloween Costume for the day.
SP-HOOQ-tacular event gathered young movie buffs in their spookiest costumes as they watched Monster House, an Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature horror-comedy produced by Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis.
The pre-Halloween treat was the highlight of the third HOOQ HANGOUTS, the biggest outdoor cinema event series held October 21, 2016 at the Globe Iconic Store in Bonifacio Global City.
HOOQ Hangouts, in cooperation with Samsung, and Globe Live, turns the BGC Amphitheater into a free outdoor cinema venue with massive LED screens, beanbags, blankets and cushions to fully enjoy the show.
HOOQ FOR KIDS
From TV series you can watch same day as the US, such as Supergirl; to having five decades worth of Filipino content, HOOQ is set to triple it’s library of child-friendly content in the last quarter of 2016.
HOOQ inked a new set of partnerships with the biggest names in family entertainment: Nickelodeon, Nick. Jr., Kids Like Us, Hasbro, Turner and MoMedia to bring some of the most popular kids titles into HOOQ’s catalog.
“HOOQ is committed to delivering premium content for everyone in the Filipino family, and this includes entertainment for kids. This is why we are expanding our library to have over 500 hours of kids’ content over the next few weeks.”
Soon the younger kids can watch animated series such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go!, PAW Patrol, Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony, Mr. Bean and more on their parents’ mobile devices or tablets. Fans of HI-5 and iCarly will also be able to revisit their favourite episodes on the series.
“We are well aware that home viewing among young families is largely driven by children, and this addition of this huge chunk of family friendly content truly makes HOOQ a video service that caters to everyone whether they are looking for Hollywood, local content for themselves, or something fun that the kids can watch. Now every member of the family can enjoy their own favorites across multiple devices at anytime,” adds Cruz-Walker.
