MANILA, Philippines, October 9, 2015 – Leading broadband and digital services provider PLDT HOME has collaborated with global technology firm Intel to bring the game-changing TVolution Stick that turns an ordinary TV into a fully functional personal computer.
Taking off from the country’s first over-the-top (OTT) device TVolution—a small device which turns an ordinary TV into an Internet TV, the TVolution Stick takes it a step further by transforming any HDMI-ready TV or monitor into a fully operational computer. No bigger than a dongle, The TVolution Stick is considered the smallest desktop that allows families to enjoy a movie together or play games with each other.
“We’re very happy to introduce the most advanced TVolution, in collaboration with Intel. Apart from providing our consumers entertainment, it gives them a full suite of PC functionality on their TV screens backed by PLDT HOME’s most trusted broadband services.” PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Head Gary Dujali said.
Intel Philippines Country Manager Calum Chisholm added, “The TVolution Stick collaboration between Intel and PLDT provides a complete computing experience compared to other ordinary streaming sticks. When paired with the strong and reliable broadband connection of PLDT, the TVolution Stick by Intel will serve to augment the home entertainment experience offered by PLDT by also bringing full PC capabilities to the home, so Filipinos can both consume & create thus connecting to their potential with technology.”
The TVolution Stick runs on Windows OS, letting users stream movies and videos, search the web, send and receive emails through their television sets. The ultra-slim stick also packs 32 gigabytes of storage and two gigabytes of memory, allowing users to save documents and even photos in the device for easier access.
Offering integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies, the TVolution Stick sports a powerful quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor and Intel® HD Graphics to ensure smooth performance and vivid picture quality.
“Its pocket-sized body is designed to be portable and space-efficient, with a USB 2.0 port and a Micro SD card slot for easy memory expansion,” Chisholm noted.
Users simply need to plug the TVolution Stick into the TV’s HDMI port to activate the computer on screen, and can easily charge it via DC wall charger or powerbank.
On a limited run only until November 30, new subscribers of DSL Plans 999 and up and all PLDT HOME Fibr plans who apply online (www.pldthome.com) will get this nifty gadget for free, along with popular content from Fox, iflix and Spinnr.
This groundbreaking collaboration with Intel comes at the heels of the breakthrough partnerships with global entertainment company and Asia Pacific’s leading broadcaster FOX International Channels and Southeast Asia’s leading Internet TV service iflix. Apart from these, PLDT HOME partnered with various digital lifestyle applications to complement the needs of its consumers.
PLDT HOME commands a market share of over 70% in the first half of the year Its robust fixed and wireless networks supported by the country’s most expansive fiber optic network, spanning more than 100,000 kilometers.
“PLDT HOME’s partnership with Intel in introducing the new TVolution Stick lets Filipino families integrate Fox, iflix, and other digital applications in one small but powerful device enabling a richer and a more convenient digital lifestyle as we forge the strongest connections at home,” Dujali concluded.
