TV5 International and SMART offer easy holiday shopping for Pinoys abroad!

Shopping for gifts for Kapatids back home is now made easier thanks to Regalo TV, a value added service developed by SMART International Campaigns and TV5 International.

Launched in time for the holiday season, Regalo TV is similar to a home shopping channel where Pinoys living in the Middle East can buy and order premium items for their loved ones here in the Philippines from the comfort of their own homes.

Interested shoppers can choose from a wide array of exciting gifts available which include Jollibee Padala Packages, Samsung Gadgets, WOW Videoke, Barbie Dolls, Winx Dolls, HotWheel Toy Cars, and SM Movie Tickets. They can even buy lechon for their relatives—one of the most requested gift items in the list.

To formalize this exciting project, a contract signing between SMART and TV5’s international arm Pilipinas Global Network Limited (PGNL) was held last December 12, 2012 at the Marajo Tower in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. SMART was represented by Head for Global Access Tina Z. Mariano, Marketing Manager for International Campaigns Tisha C. Quinitio, and Marketing Supervisor for International Campaigns Christina Tagle.

“Regalo TV is really designed for our OFWs living in the Middle East,” Ramirez shares. “We understand their need to bridge the distance between their loved ones this holiday season that is why we came up with an easy and convenient way to make their families and friends here in the Philippines feel the Christmas spirit.”

Mariano also added, “We initiated this service to allow our kababayans to be part of family celebrations during special occasions like the holiday season.  It’s a comfort for them to be able to give their loved ones a Christmas gift even if they are apart.”

Regalo TV is shown exclusive on TV5’s international channels Kapatid TV5 and Aksyon TV International and available in the Middle East via OSN.
