Huawei Unveils New Streaming Platform in Partnership with WCA

Movie enthusiasts and esports buffs alike have now a new streaming platform to look out for as Huawei Philippines announces the official launch of Vidplus on November 18, Saturday at The Pound in BGC, Taguig.

According to Chang Anning, head of Huawei’s cloud services system, Vidplus is an online video platform that allows users to browse “massive collections of Hollywood movies, high-quality documentaries, music videos and Chinese films” as well as “safe and engaging educational content for families and children.”

In addition, the application will allow viewers to play all World Cyber Arena (WCA) matchups as well as WCA-related exclusive content. Zhang Xiao, overseas executive for WCA, has mentioned their happiness at having “a wonderful partnership with a strong mobile brand like Huawei.”

Asked whether users would be able to download the content into their phones, Anning mentioned that “it’s not available right now due to numerous issues” and that they are focusing first on ensuring the stability of the platform.

Anning has said that he wants Filipino gamers to “try out the application” and that “the latest videos of this year’s The Faceoff would also be available in Vidplus.”

The said system is available for free to all Globe users for seven days upon confirmation of their phone number on the app. Afterwards, users can continue to avail Vidplus for P10 a day and discontinue their subscription.

Huawei also unveiled a new phone, called the Huawei Nova 2i, during the event.
