I have been using iflix for a few weeks (watching Friends and episodes of Conan) and the experience has been enjoyable. The video quality is not HD, but it’s still very good, especially on mobile. The videos load fast and it hardly buffers. Best of all, there is a huge number of cartoons to choose from for the kids (and kids at heart/batang isip) to enjoy. You could even use your account on up to 5 devices. That should cover most members of your household.
The launch event was held at the Green Sun in Pasong Tamo, Makati. It was attended by bloggers, media members and celebrities. Heather Morris, who played Britney Pierce on the TV show Glee, flew in from the States to attend the event.
