I Want a PLDT HOME TVolution Stick this 2016



The PLDT HOME TVolution Stick is a dongle-sized device which transforms any HDMI-ready TV into a fully functional PC running the latest Windows 10 operating system with integrated entertainment, communication, data, social media and productivity functionalities. What a great way to start the year by bringing home a PLDT HOME TVolution Stick for the family.

It's portable, it's light and it's easy to use. I hate gadgets that are too complicated and eat up a lot of time setting up. The TVolution Stick is ready to use in just three simple steps:
  1. Plug-and-Play: Connect the TVolution Stick to the HDMI port of your TV
  2. Connectivity: Connect your mouse and keyboard to the TVolution Stick via Bluetooth 4.0 or WiFi
  3. Access: Connect the TVolution Stick to the Internet via WiFi
Once connected, you are ready to unleash its various functionalities:

Entertainment
  • watch movies, TV series, and live TV channels from iflix and FOX International Channels, and music videos from Spinnr
  • play Windows 10 built-in games, download additional games from Windows Store, and access applications from Xbox PC Games
Communication
  • video call and chat via Skype
Data & Social Media
  • surf the Internet with the all-new Microsoft Edge browser
  • watch YouTube videos
  • check you social media accounts
Productivity
  • send and reply to emails
  • create or edit documents with the built-in Office 365 (including MS Word, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint, OneNote and OneDrive)
  • access as much as 15GB of files via OneDrive cloud storage; access your portable storage through the stick's USB 2.0 port and Micro SD card slot
At home, the TVolution Stick becomes the entertainment hub where my family and I can together enjoy movies, music and games. I can also stay connected with friends and family via video calls and chats, help the kids with their online research, or catch up with work at home by replying to emails or editing documents.

When on a business trip, I can bring the TVolution Stick with me so I can enjoy the same functionalities wherever I go. I won't miss on my favorite series or TV shows, I can video call the family back home via Skype, and I can review my powerpoint slides for my presentation the following day.

Finally, as a blogger, the TVolution Stick will allow me to travel light because I no longer need to bring my laptop with me. At the hotel, I just have to plug the stick to the HDMI port of the TV and I am ready to blog on big screen while lounging in my hotel room, check on the blog's social media accounts, and plan tomorrow's itinerary using online maps.

The PLDT HOME TVolution Stick is really a powerful device. For its small size, it amazes me that it can transform an HDMI-ready TV into a fully functional Windows 10 PC. It is the perfect fit for me and people who are heavy users of Internet and are always on the go.

If you are not yet a PLDT HOME subscriber, you can avail of the free TVolution Stick by applying for a new PLDT HOME Fibr or HOME DSL Fam Plan 999 which already comes with iflix and FOX. Visit pldthome.com for more details.

The TVolution Stick is the next level in PLDT HOME’s pioneering portfolio of over-the-top (OTT) devices which started with the TVolution, the Philippines’ first OTT device which turns an ordinary TV into an Internet TV. Following the success of TVolution, PLDT HOME raised the bar with the recent launch of TVolution Stick, a dongle-sized device that is portable, plug-and-play, simple to use and productive. Unlike other similarly designed sticks which “primarily functions as a casting & streaming device”, it transforms an HDMI-capable TV into a fully functional PC running the latest Windows 10 operating system.
