MANILA - Smart Signature users can now enjoy Netflix without subscription costs through mobile data bundles, the telecoms company said.

Smart and Netflix announced their partnership on Friday, offering a 2-in-1 mobile postpaid plan.

Smart said subscribers of Smart Signature plans do not need to pay for a separate subscription for Netflix to access popular movies and series on the platform. 

Netflix's popular shows include K-drama hits "The King: Eternal Monarch" and "Crash Landing on You", Japanese rising show "Alice in Borderland", and western series, such as "Stranger Things", "Bridgerton" and "The Queen's Gambit."

It also features blockbuster Pinoy movies such as "Through Night & Day", "Kita Kita", and Kathniel love team movies such as "The Hows of Us" and "Crazy Beautiful You."

 

Richard Matthew Dimagiba, head of Smart's Postpaid Marketing, said the plan package with Netflix also includes generous data starting at 10 gigabytes (GB), and access to 5G network -- the fastest mobile data network in the country.

He added that a "generous" 10 GB data can give users 30 hours worth of streaming in a month.
