Globe At Home announced that it is “giving Filipinos even more ways to enjoy the latest in entertainment with the launch of its Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered device.”
The first Roku powered streaming stick in the Philippines, Globe Streamwatch is designed to let users watch a variety of content across 100+ free channels in different categories including sports, lifestyle, travel and more.
Roku, headquartered in Los Gatos, California, pioneered streaming to the TV. Its technology connects users to the streaming content and enables content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers with unique capabilities to engage consumers.
Globe At Home customers can watch the latest season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things 2 on October 27, 2017 using their Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered device. After its hugely popular first season, the series is back to tell the story of Will Byers and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana.
Set in 1984, the story continues as the characters are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
Globe At Home has also collaborated with FOX Networks Group to offer viewers its newly launched video-streaming service FOX+.
