Converge FREEDOM Quick Review
I just had my Converge FiberX internet installed last Saturday, March 23rd, so I was so eager with any new offerings that Converge ICT has for me as a subscriber. At the launch, guests were given access to the app as the entire venue was powered with Converge’s fiber connection.
Prior to the start of the formal event, I was able to check the service. Right off the bat, I already liked the fact that there are different genres of entertainment that I can choose from. Also some content are available on HD.
The content available is really dependent on what cable operators are showing on TV. Somehow, my expectations were not met. I’m subscribed to other steaming services where there are tons of content available.
When the details were discussed about Converge FREEDOM streaming service at the official unveiling, that’s where I totally got a full understanding of the service and started forming my personal opinion. Despite disappointment that the content available is dependent on the available programs, it’s pretty understandable because the streaming service is in partnership with cable operators.
I’m not really a TV fan. I mean, I do have some favorite shows, but I’ve accepted the fact that I can not follow every episode because I’m really busy with more important things. I’ve also missed a couple of movies that I hope to watch soon. With the availability of this service, it’s now possible to catch up when they become available on streaming. And using the app, I realized I can go back up to like a few days and watch the ones that’s been shown.
One thing I don’t like though is that I can’t connect the app to Chromecast so I can watch it on my TV. That’s such a bummer. I have to content myself in watching the shows on my smartphone just because I don’t have a set-top box. Why should I watch TV shows on my smartphone when I’m at home, right?
I tried out the Converge FREEDOM streaming service for a 30-day free trial until April 30. Now, will I continue with it? I’m not quite sure. Possibly not, and why not? The price is the deciding factor. At Php499, or even at Php299, it won’t be that much practical for me. In addition, I don’t want TVCs when watching. But if you’re really a TV fan and you can’t afford to miss an episode of your favorite show, the service is for you.
