Ever since I got Netflix and a streaming device from Globe At Home, my life changed for the better, as I’ve gushed about on this blog post. I’ve never watched this much TV since streaming devices came along. I love it so much that I wish I can take it with me wherever I go, especially since I shuttle around so much, not just between my fiancé’s home in Iloilo and my parents’ home in Manila, but all over when my fiancé and I travel and do our hotel staycations. But, that means bringing the box, all the cords, not to mention the remote around with me and having to set it up, say, in the hotel room TV each time we travel.
Look how small the Globe Streamwatch stick is! You don’t even need the remote with you if you have the app.
Thankfully, there’s a new streaming device in the market that’s so convenient to take anywhere and I can just use my own mobile phone as remote control! Globe At Home gives us even more ways to enjoy the latest in entertainment with the launch of its Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered device, the first Roku powered streaming stick in the Philippines. If you didn’t know, Roku reportedly pioneered streaming to the TV, as it’s founded by Anthony Wood, inventor of the DVR.
Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered is a portable streaming stick that allows us to use it on different TVs at home, in a friend’s home, or even at a hotel. No more browsing and waiting for good shows or movies to watch on cable TV during a staycation; we can just plug this device and watch the shows and movies we want! It comes with a simple remote control with dedicated buttons for Netflix, Disney Channel Apps, YouTube, and HOOQ. You can also download the Streamwatch app for free on Google Playstore and App Store to convert your mobile phone to a remote. From the channel store, you can choose from an additional 100 streaming channels to add to your personalized home screen.
Globe Streamwatch lets users watch a variety of content across 100+ free channels in different categories including sports, lifestyle, travel, and more. And yes, it includes our beloved Netflix, where I was able to finish all six seasons of Gossip Girl and catch up on the latest episodes of Riverdale Season 2 while I was stuck at home in Manila with the flu. Fans of Netflix’ original series Stranger Things can now also catch up on its second season using their Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered device (I have yet to watch the hugely popular first season, but I’m just too much of a scaredy cat haha).
Globe At Home has also collaborated with FOX Networks Group to offer viewers its newly launched video-streaming service FOX+ soon on Globe Streamwatch. Customers can access the latest TV series available on it, such as The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, and S.W.A.T; first-run Hollywood blockbusters including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Hacksaw Ridge, and Assassin’s Creed; live sports such as Formula One and LPGA; and thrilling documentaries such as The Long Road Home, in addition to a large back catalogue and library of world-class content.

The plans also come with three-month access to top streaming services such as Netflix, Disney Channel Apps, and HOOQ.
“Streaming has revolutionized the way people consume TV series and movies. Today, primetime is whenever people want to watch content. Through our collaboration with Roku and the launch of Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered, our customers can now watch 1M+ videos, movies, and TV shows from our global partners like YouTube, Disney Channel Apps, HOOQ, and Netflix. Easy to use and activate, Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered gives you access to a wealth of entertainment at home even without a cable connection,” said Globe At Home Senior Vice President Martha Sazon.
