The popular mobile Internet messenger company Chikka is launching Chikka Cine via Facebook.
This service which links up social media and cinematic entertainment will provide Filipino Facebook users in North America the privilege to watch mainstream Filipino movies. This means no more missed shows because of location concerns.
With Chikka teaming-up with new company Mav Shack, the movie streaming feature gets a thrilling start with two recent blockbusters, namely, “In Your Eyes” and “Petrang Kabayo” up for screening. Facebook users can avail of this by simply hitting the “Like” button on Mav Shack’s Page.
The new media service offering will be free for the entire month of November. Both movies that respectively star multi-awarded actress Anne Curtis and current sensation Vice Ganda, belong to the talent stable of Viva Films, with which Mav Shack has tied up.
With the movie streaming over the USA and Canada territories, OFWs, Fil-Ams and Fil-Canadians in the region would “feel at home” with Chikka Cine’s entertainment offerings. As a bonus, viewers of the said movies would be instant participants in a raffle. Two winners get round trip tickets to the Philippines, including all-expense paid weekend to island paradise Boracay.
Chikka, which recently produced Chikka Live – a live video streaming service innovation that captivated thousands of viewers worldwide, is now available in multiple formats and browsers on all personal computers and handheld devices.
By developing fresh content that fuses social media, Chikka, as an instant messaging innovator, continuously helps its telco partners adapt to the new digital environment via more utilities for new-generation users.
Mav Shack, on the other hand, is an over-the-top service online that streams content such as movies, radio programs, and concerts over the Internet. Its service is available on desktops via its URL mavshack.com and Facebook page. A new application/widget will soon be ready for subscribers to see the selected movies from Smart Phones supported by Android and iOS, like iPhone and iPad.
While those films are already available, subscribers can expect more Filipino flicks from Viva Films through Chikka Cine and Mav Shack.
