After bringing us Coldplay this year and Madonna in 2016, Globe Telecom continues to bring us the best of entertainment, as they recently announced that they are also bringing us Harry Styles’ first solo concert on May 1, 2018! Audiophiles and concert goers are also in for a treat this year, as Globe brings back The Chainsmokers on September 13.
So yes, as early as this year, we’re already beginning to experience Globe’s exciting entertainment offers—and they’re just getting started! The leading mobile brand recently launched its extensive lineup of productions that customers can participate in, enjoy, immerse, and express themselves in.
Globe is pulling out all the stops with four musical productions in 2017 alone: Its musical run already began with the adaptation of Disney’s Newsies, which started last July 7, 2017 at the Globe ICONIC Store and will run on all weekends of July, in partnership with 9 Works Theatrical. Globe is also co-producing the international tours of the award-winning titles West Side Story from August 10 to 27 and the West End production of The Sound of Music from September 27 to October 15, both at The Theater at Solaire. Capping off 2017 will be the restaging of Menken & Ahren’s A Christmas Carol in December—a new Christmas tradition Globe hopes to create among Filipinos.
The cast of Globe Live and 9 Works Theatrical’s Newsies perform a song from the musical.
Apart from live productions, Globe will also bring us movies like Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3, opening July 26, 2017; and the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi in December 2017.
Globe has also ventured into producing original video series and films through Globe Studios. In recognition of the local independent film scene, Globe Studios launched the first-ever online film fest, the Globe Independent Film Festival, to fuel creativity among aspiring local filmmakers. Globe has also collaborated with HOOQ to bring the most-awaited, star-studded production, On The Job (OTJ), a spin-off from the original On The Job blockbuster hit by Erik Matti.
“We wanted to give our customers more ways to enjoy life, so we ventured into staging entertainment productions that go beyond the smartphone screen with the establishment of Globe LIVE and Globe Studios,” said Globe Chief Commercial Officer Albert de Larrazabal. “Globe is all about creating experiences, and we are simply taking the experience further by going beyond the virtual and giving our customers the opportunity to experience entertainment wherever they are, whether in film, digital, or in real life. There’s a boundless supply of great talent in the Philippines, and with it potentially comes great movies, theater, and other exciting content to enjoy,” he added.

The company highlights the importance of the hard work that goes behind the scenes and how content piracy affects the livelihood of men and women in the entertainment industry, which is why it introduced its advocacy #PlayItRight. The campaign aims to shed light on real life stories of people behind the entertainment we consume, in the hopes of encouraging customers to enjoy content from legitimate sources.
In line with #PlayItRight, customers can access all the entertainment they crave with the new GoWATCH, which allots a separate data allocation just for videos and can be used for popular and legitimate streaming platforms like YouTube, Netflix, Tribe, HOOQ, NBA, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel Apps.
Customers may avail of GoWATCH29 for 2GB of video streaming data for as low as P29, valid for one day as an add-on to any GoSURF promo starting with GoSURF50.
Globe Ambassadors Kenzo Gutierrez, Chef Ed Bugia, DJ Mars Miranda, Kaila Estrada, and Tommy Esguerra.
#PlayItRight will also soon play a major role in Philippine cinema as the company supports the upcoming Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino, a nationwide week-long celebration organized by the Office of the President’s Film Development Council, where all movie theaters will exclusively screen Filipino films in line with Buwan ng Wika in August.
