Good news, indeed! In just a matter of nine months since its start of operation, Viva’s Vivamax has already reached one million subscribers — a milestone that makes it the Philippines’ fastest-growing streaming platform. 

Vivamax started its streaming service in the Philippines before quickly venturing to the Middle East, and Europre. Shortly followed in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia. Starting October, Vivamax becomes available in the following territories: Indonesia, Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan, Brunei, Macau, Vietnam, Maldives, Australia, and New Zealand. Vivamax’s global footprint expands in December as it enters the following territories: USA, Northern Marianas Island-Saipan, Guam, Hawaii, and Canada. This brings Vivamax’s global reach to 71 territories since going live. 

The phenomenal growth is made possible by Viva’s commitment to aggressively build Vivamax’s content lineup despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. With new original movies premiering every week, coupled with the biggest library of both local and Korean movies, and a formidable lineup of Hollywood blockbusters, Vivamax has succeeded in bringing the cinema experience within everyone’s reach via their smartphones and through TV casting. 

Proof of this commitment is Vivamax’s impressive lineup of new movie releases for Q4 2021, featuring the biggest and hottest stars, covering the widest range of genres, and catering to the tastes of every Pinoy. They are truly delivering their brand promise: Atin ‘To!
