Cartoon Network Apps Launching in the Philippines


MANILA: Turner Asia Pacific is slated to roll out Cartoon Network apps on mobile devices in the Philippines as part of a deal with local mobile brand Globe Telecom.

An authenticated version of the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app will be available to Globe customers, featuring a live stream of the channel and VOD content. The Cartoon Network Anything app, which showcases short-form content, will also be bundled.

Phil Nelson, Turner’s managing director for Southeast Asia, said: “Cartoon Network Anything and Cartoon Network Watch and Play are two of our most popular apps with very good reason. They capture the best of the Cartoon Network brand and deliver captivating content—games, video and quirky quizzes—across mobile devices. Offered to Globe customers, these products provide a convenient avenue for Filipinos to enjoy the most popular kids’ content wherever they are, and in a safe and flexible way.”

Globe Chief Commercial Officer Albert De Larrazabal added: “Globe strives to provide the best service that includes premium entertainment from strong international partnerships like Turner’s Cartoon Network. We look forward to the many possibilities this partnership offers as both companies are committed to provide valued customers with a unique digital entertainment experience. Moving forward, customers can also expect more good news from Globe and Cartoon Network.”
