Lopez family signals end of its mobile service
Media conglomerate ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. is officially set to pull the plug on its mobile service effective Dec.1.
This will mark the end of its five-year services agreement with Globe Telecoms to deliver content and telecom services on mobile devices through the ABS-CBN mobile brand.
“After a thorough assessment, ABS-CBN Convergence deemed its current mobile business model to be financially unsustainable. As a result, ABS-CBN Convergence and Globe have reached an agreement not to renew their mobile network sharing contract,” the Kapamilya network said.
All ABS-CBNmobile prepaid, postpaid, and SkyMobi subscribers will continue to enjoy text, call, and data services until Nov. 30.
“As the mobile network sharing winds down, ABS-CBNand Globe continue to bank on their competencies and focus on new synergies to serve their customers better, such as the promotional bundling of ABS-CBN TVplus boxes with Globe At Home prepaid WiFi and making ABS-CBN TVplus’ KBO (Kapamilya Box Office) and iWantv over-the- top services available to all Globe subscribers,” the broadcasting network said.
