Netflix Arrives in the Philippines - First Month Free!

Finally, the popular TV and movie streaming service Netflix  arrives in the Philippines along with 129 other countries. This news was first announced at the annual Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.



Subscription starts at 370 Pesos per month with basic streaming services.



Free for the First Month, Upgrade, Downgrade, Cancel Any Time

Netflix is offering a free trial for the first month and you can change your plan anytime either to upgrade, downgrade or cancel your subscription.

Netflix offers the largest collection of movies and TV collections in the world. It currently has 100,000 DVD titles in its collection. It was founded in 1997 and with more than 20Million subscribers, it is the leading provider of on-demand movie and TV streaming service in the United States. 

Competing Against Piracy

Probably one of biggest challenge Netflix will face here in the Philippines is to convince many people to turn from downloading pirated movies to streaming it at a minimal cost. The challenge is even compounded by the issue of slow internet connection.

Netflix follows the move of Spotify and Apple Music, american media streaming services that made its way into the country. Like Netflix, both are competing against piracy and file sharing practices many Filipinos have been used to.

Local Competitor - iFlix and HOOQ

Netflix will compete with iFlix and HOOQ, local versions of Netflix which was heavily advertised in the past year. With Netflix on board, it will post a huge challenge to iFlix and HOOQ.

Yugatech.com did a great job of putting up a comparison chart of the three streaming services. Kindly check here: Comparison: Netflix vs iflix vs HOOQ

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
