GMA Network is bringing its flair of digital television streaming to mobile users as it lunches the GMA Now DTV dongle.
Essentially a mobile version of the GMA Affordabox DTV receiver, the plug-and-play tool allows users to enjoy GMA’s video-on-demand programs, engage in a Groupee Chat, and join interactive promos.
Taking the form of an OTG dongle, it easily fits all smartphones, either via USB Type-A or USB Type-C port. However, it takes a smartphone running on Android 6.0 or later to run it. It also comes with a mobile application where you can set it up and access other options.
Fresh from release, users will get to enjoy the following digital TV channels via GMA Now DTV dongle:
- GMA Heart of Asia
- GMA News TV
- Soon: DepEd TV
- Other free-to-air channels accessible in your local area
Take note that an active internet connection is required to enjoy the game’s online interactive features.
While intended for nationwide coverage in the future, only the following areas may enjoy GMA Now DTV mobile dongle’s service as of the moment:
- Baguio City
- Metro Cebu
- Metro Davao
- Metro Manila
Interested buyers may now purchase GMA Now DTV dongle via GMA’s official stores, Lazada and Shopee, for Php649.
