 Content deal kicks off with “The Broken Marriage Vow” streaming in PH

ABS-CBN Entertainment, the Philippines’ leading content provider, and Viu, PCCW’s leading pan-regional over-the-top (OTT) video streaming service, have forged a content partnership to bring the best entertainment shows to Filipino viewers.


To kick off the partnership, ABS-CBN’s highly anticipated upcoming drama series “The Broken Marriage Vow,” the Philippine adaptation of the hit BBC series “Doctor Foster,” will be available on Viu in the Philippines on January 22, 48 hours before its TV broadcast. 


The collaboration accelerates ABS-CBN’s vision to reach more audiences and promote Filipino talent worldwide as it evolves into a global content creator and strengthens Viu’s commitment to bringing premium Asian entertainment to its users with its massive and diverse content catalog.


“With Viu as our partner, we will be able to champion excellent Filipino content and talent. Thank you very much to Viu for trusting ABS-CBN Entertainment as a partner. We look forward to many more collaborations as we work towards bringing the best of Filipino entertainment to the world,” said Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN COO of broadcast.


“Viu's goal has always been to provide premium Asian content to the Filipino people. Thanks to this partnership with ABS-CBN, we're able to solidify our commitment to not only showcase the best of Filipino content, but also to represent and strengthen the presence of Filipino talent in the region,” said Arianne Kader-Cu, Viu Philippines country manager.


The partnership was made official during a contract signing event at ABS-CBN with Vidanes, Kader-Cu, Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal, and Viu Philippines content development manager Garlic Garcia. 


“The Broken Marriage Vow” tells the story of Dra. Jill Ilustre (Jodi Sta. Maria), a dedicated wife and mother whose life turns upside down when she suspects that her husband David (Zanjoe Marudo) is having an affair.


Viu-ers in the Philippines may watch “The Broken Marriage Vow” first on Viu starting January 22.
