Premium Access
If you have Premium Access, you can watch all the videos in iWant TV (except for Pay Per View). You’ll be able to enjoy our huge selection of ABS-CBN programs, livestreaming channels, blockbuster movies, behind-the-scenes coverage, and exclusive shows that you can only watch here.

Free Access
Users who don't have Premium Access will be able to watch the latest three episodes of our current programs plus stream ABS-CBN, MOR and O Shopping on your devices. This is subject to change at any time.
To get Premium Access, you need a Kapamilya Account and a telco account where to charge the purchase. When you have these, follow the below instructions:

  • Select an “Exclusive Access” video you want to watch.
  • When a prompt appears, select “Get Premium Access Now.”
  • Choose the iWant TV Package you want to buy.
  • After, choose the telco account you will use to pay.
  • Enter the confirmation code sent to your mobile phone number to purchase the iWant TV Package.
An iWant TV PIN is an electronic voucher composed of letters and numbers that a user enters in the Redeem section of the iWant TV app or website to unlock their access to iWant TV.

Not all iWant TV PINs are the same. We have PINs that grant users premium access for 1 day, 7 days, and 30 days. We also have PINs that unlock access only for certain contents, like concerts, movies, or sporting events.
Here are the steps to use your iWant TV PIN:
 1. Go to iWant TV.
 2. Log in with your iWant TV account
 3. For app users, tap on the three horizontal lines at the upper right section to reveal the menu slider. For website users, click on the arrow next to your name on the         upper right section of the screen.
 4. Select Redeem.
 5. Enter your iWant TV PIN in the box and click on the Submit button.
 6. If you have successfully upgraded your access, you will be informed on what access you have and until what date.

Please note:
Once you unlock a PIN, the timer starts counting.
For example:
If you still have a few days left on your 30-day Premium Access and you enter a 1-Day PIN, it will be activated on that same day. It will NOT add up.
As with any video streaming service, a good internet connection is required to enjoy uninterrupted viewing.
An iWant TV account is only allowed to watch one video on iWant TV at one time. For example, if you're watching ABS-CBN livestreaming on your laptop and you start watching last night’s Bandila on your smartphone using the same account, the video on your laptop will stop playing.
There are a number of factors that affect video playback. Here are some tips:
  • For app users, ensure that you have the latest iWant TV app version. Go to the App Store or Play Store and search for iWant TV. Click on the Upgrade button if it's available.
  • Sometimes a device reboot is all it takes. Try restarting your phone or computer.
  • Ensure that you have fast internet connection.
