‘The Hows of Us,’ ‘Jhon en Martian,’ ‘Tabing Ilog,’ banner iWant’s April offerings

THE highest-grossing Filipino film of all time, an original intergalactic love story, and a ‘90s teen drama that defined a generation are the new additions to streaming service iWant’s robust line-up of content offerings this April.

The Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla-starrer “The Hows of Us,” which made box-office history last year, is already streaming exclusively on iWant via pay-per-view. For only P30, users can enjoy unlimited viewing of the movie for seven days on any device, anywhere.

iWant also offers its newest original series, the romantic-comedy “Jhon en Martian,” where Arci Muñoz and Pepe Herrera play an alien and an earthling who fall in love with each other despite their obvious differences. Also making a bigtime comeback is the popular teen drama “Tabing Ilog,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Users may binge-watch its episodes on any device, any time for free starting April 24.

In March, meanwhile, iWant recorded 89 million views as it launched “Bagman,” a socio-political action thriller, and “Touch Screen,” an anthology series about technology and human connection, while users enjoyed watching movies and their favorite Kapamilya programs.

Users can also enjoy iWant in the comfort of their own homes as it will soon release an app compatible with SKY set-top boxes, allowing them users to stream iWant on their TV screens. The streaming service can also be connected to TVs via Chromecast and Apple Airplay.

iWant, which can also be accessed via web on, boasts a diverse library of free original movies and shows. It also offers currently airing and old ABS-CBN shows, documentaries, and specials, 1,500 films, restored movie classics, fastcut versions of currently airing Kapamilya teleseryes, Asianovelas, thousands of songs, One Music’s live digital concerts, and the livestreaming of “iWant ASAP,” DZMM TeleRadyo, ABS-CBN Channel 2 and ABS-CBN S+A.
