The show also features other recognizable actors such as Robin Lord Taylor from Law & Order, Donal Logue from Sons of Anarchy, and Jada Pinkett Smith from Hawthorne.
This Hollywood blockbuster series is one of the latest additions to the Philippines very own video streaming service that provides a huge variety of both international and local TV shows and movies. HOOQ (pronounced “Hook”), an online streaming site that offers laughter, drama, action and adventure rolled into one. HOOQ is the first video streaming service in the Philippines to offer access to Gotham.
Currently, HOOQ offers over 30,000 hours of content, including thousands of Hollywood films, and the widest selection of Filipino-produced content, with movies and series from ABS-CBN, GMA 7, Star Cinema, Regal Entertainment and Viva Communications. HOOQ is also proud to announce local entertainment sensations Xian Lim and Jessy Mendiola as their official brand ambassadors.
“Today, with the mobile lifestyle of Filipino people, most would like to watch movies on their tablets and smartphones when and where they want,” says HOOQ Country Manager Jane Cruz-Walker. “Filipinos are content-savvy, and enjoy a wide range of entertainment. With HOOQ, everything is in one platform, so whether you to watch blockbuster Hollywood TV series like Arrow and the Flash, telenovelas from ABS-CBN or GMA, and even great movie classics, you can watch them all on HOOQ.”
