What’s with PLDT Watchpad?
Everyone is buzzing about this Watchpad which is being offered by PLDT. It is a free application offered for every PLDT MyDSL plan subscribers. PLDT Watchpad is a software application that allows you to watch free TV channels and some live streaming of selected events including the Manny Pacquiao fights. As for the requirements , of course you must have an ACTIVE PLDT DSL account and you have a good billing records before signing up. You need the latest Adobe Flash Player, .NET framework for Windows, Windows Media Player 9 or higher, latest and update browser versions. PLDT Watchpad is indeed open for every subscribers but the performance of the said application may vary depending on the speed or plan that you have. Keep in mind that this application may work effectively if the speed that you have is at least 1Mbps and above . Plan 999 and 1299 may have it but they might experience some buffering because the speed is not good enough to support the said application. Watchpad will require you to register (the sign up page can be found at http://pldtwatchpad.com). It’s a one time registration so once you established your username and password, you can never have another application for the same account. You can access your account anywhere as long as there is a Watchpad application available. You can download the Watchpad on their official page too. Watchpad is also open for Mac PCs. Unfortunately, i am subscribed under Smartbro and even though it’s a sister company of PLDT, I’m not sure if the application will work on my end. Anyway, some of the channels offered by Watchpad include History, National Geographic, Cartoon Network, Animax, CNN, Cosmopolitan, FHM, Channel V, and more. Watchpad exclusively offer a Live streaming of Pacquiao Fights and they do offer the so called “Big Ticket” to boost your speed for a limited time to accommodate the streaming of the said event.
