And in the meantime, if you’re on a business trip and don’t have much to do while you’re not in a meeting and not watching a game, you will have complete access to all video channels in the app for free.

And on that note, the content variety in all corners of the app is simply amazing. You can watch all your TV shows, free news broadcasts, various kinds of entertainment channels and more. And regarding the premium content, one of Viewstream’s more useful features it that it supports carrier billing, so even if you don’t have access to any online payment instruments, this will never be a problem for accessing the app’s premium content. Prepaid plans are fully supported, you don’t need to be on a contract to be able to use carrier billing, unlike some other apps on the market.

Worried that you might not get to watch your favorite games because you’ll be somewhere with limited access to good Wi-Fi hotspots? For a business traveler, this shouldn’t be much of a concern, but those traveling for leisure outside the country might be a bit concerned. Not to worry though! As long as you’re in the coverage of your carrier’s 3G network, this will be more than enough to give you the best streaming quality the app can offer. You won’t have to deal with annoying buffer times or distorted quality, and you’ll certainly never have to worry about the service going down right as you’re about to witness the score of the season. Remember, Viewstream is partnered with the leading carriers in the country, so you’ll be able to see Gilas Pilipinas in action no matter where you are.

Other than the standard features you’d expect from a video streaming app, keen FIBA fans will also be happy to hear that Viewstream offers some extra goodies aimed specifically at them. For example, you don’t have to leave the app and open your browser if you want to check the schedule for the upcoming matches. This is available right within the app itself, in all the detail you can ask for!
