I love bingewatching. I literally can get hooked to a series if I find it interesting. And that is why I got absolutely addicted to video-on-demand services like HOOQ.
I’ve been using HOOQ since I found out that they have my favorite superhero series like The Flash, Gotham Arrow and Marvel’s Agensts of S.H.I.E.L.D among others.
But what I love about this platform now, after it launched it’s new update, is that it became an ad-free freemium app, wherein it now allows customers to try out the service at no cost!
How you ask? Well, you can watch pilot episodes of all the TV series under their wing absolutely free (for all registered users). And the best part about it is even if your free trial period has ended you can still continue watching pilot episodes (of the 1st season only) to give you the power to decide if you’d like to continue watching the rest of the series before you pay for the whole subscription!
“We are very excited to introduce this hybrid model as it gives customers more control over their purchase decision. This new hybrid model is a result of what we have learnt over the past year after studying usage patterns and speaking to numerous customers and understanding what they want in a video-on-demand service.”
This freemium service is now available to all HOOQ customers this October!
Apart from this service, I also noticed that the app has embraced a new app interface. It now boasts a real time content feed, which highlights their most popular contents… and a personal recommendation system that makes it easier for us to find our favorites!
HOOQ will also be available on Airplay and mobile web apart from its current support of Android, iOS, Chromecast, Android Set-top box and Chromecast.
And lastly, HOOQ introduced its newest brand ambassadress… Megan Young!
