With P1-B budget per year, Vivamax to release at least one movie/series every week in 2022

At least one Original every week. This is the target of Vivamax for 2022 as it continues to be the leading Filipino streaming platform. It is also set to celebrate its first anniversary on January 29.

Since its launch last year, Vivamax has produced a total of 35 original films and series on the platform. Debuting with Darryl Yap’s Paglaki Ko, Gusto Kong Maging #Pornstar, films of different genres soon followed: Death of a Girlfriend, Revirginized, The Housemaid, Mahjong Nights, Taya, More Than Blue, and Vivamax’s first original sequel, Pornstar 2. Also notable are two original series, Parang Kayo Pero Hindi and KPL

Vivamax likewise features many classic films not just from the Viva library but also from other production companies like Star Cinema, Regal Entertainment, 1017P, Reality, IdeaFirst, Brillante Mendoza’s Center Stage Productions. Vivamax is committed to work with the country’s biggest stars—Sharon Cuneta, Sarah Geronimo, Anne Curtis, Bela Padilla, Nadine Lustre, Andrew E., Yassi Pressman, Kim Molina, Jerald Napoles, Dingdong Dantes, Piolo Pascual, Carlo Aquino, Toni and Alex Gonzaga, among many others—and the finest directors—among them Brillante Mendoza, Lawrence Fajardo, Roman Perez, Darryl Yap, Joel Lamangan, and Yam Laranas. The list will grow come 2022.

 Viva is slated to produce at least 52 films/series in 2022 for a regular weekly release of Vivamax Originals. As of December, there are 15 finished films scheduled to be shown in Q1 and over 40 projects greenlit in various stages of production. With the reopening of cinemas, at least eight films will see a theatrical release for a return to the classic viewing experience. Viva stays true to its commitment of a P1 billion production budget per year despite the pandemic and will continue to support the industry workers in order to serve the Filipino audience. 

Over 2 million Vivamax subscribers are treated to a wide array of content—fresh originals, classic films, romance comedy series, the biggest Korean blockbusters, and popular Hollywood hits. And the subscriber base is steadily growing as Vivamax remains to be the #1 top-grossing Philippine entertainment app on Google and GCash. Vivamax has even made it easier to purchase subscriptions with budget-friendly plans: P49 (1 week), P149 (1 month), P399 (3 months) P749 (6 months) P1390 (1 year). These can be purchased in-app via GCash and credit card. Subscribers may also purchase Vivamax vouchers from 7-11, Ministop, Shopee, Lazada, SM Retail, GCash, PayMaya and soon in your neighborhood sari-sari stores.

Vivamax has also set its sights on the world.

    The plots, sadly, are predictable. Quantity? Yes. Quality? Fuck you.
