GMA launches GMA Now, a device that lets viewers watch TV from their android devices for free.
GMA Now is a mobile digital TV receiver that allows Android smartphone users to watch the live broadcast of the Kapuso channels GMA, GMA News TV, Heart of Asia, Hallypop, and soon, DepEd TV, as well as other free-to-air channels available in their area.
To use, viewers need to simply download the GMA Now app from the Google Play Store to register for free and attach the GMA Now dongle to their smartphones. GMA Now users can also enjoy exclusive interactive features while connected to the internet. On the GMA Videos-On-Demand tab, never miss any episode of your favorite Kapuso shows as you can catch up or binge-watch their past episodes and stream exclusive Kapuso content whenever you want!
GMA Now also comes with its exclusive messaging service Groupee Chat, which allows viewers to create groups and chat with family and friends while watching GMA programs. And soon, they can also get the latest updates on their favorite Kapuso shows via this feature.
Bringing entertainment to a whole new level are GMA Now’s Interactive Promos where users can join fun quizzes and polls for a chance to win prizes weekly!
Alden Richards, the face of GMA Now, shares what he enjoys about the device: “Bilib ako sa portability and the convenience GMA Now offers. Kahit saan ako magpunta, as long as within the coverage area, I get to watch GMA shows. May feature rin na pwede mong balikan ‘yung previous episodes through video-on-demand, so it will really keep you entertained while you’re on standby or commuting. Not only that, it also has features where you can chat and watch the shows along with your friends or even join exclusive promos and win prizes!”
