It’s going to be an exciting year for entertainment fans as more and more ABS-CBN performers join the Pinoy livestreaming app kumu. This new partnership comes on the heels of the recent success of Pinoy Big Brother: Connect, which attracted over 100,000 new users to the platform.
“The PBB Connect with kumu was groundbreaking. We received an unprecedented number of auditions and engagement with kumunizens. It made the show more interactive for the viewers,” said ABS-CBN entertainment production and Star Magic head, Laurenti Dyogi.
“At a time when we’re all isolated at home, kumu provides the venue for these interactions with fans. It’s a good training and development platform for artists in live entertainment. It’s also a way to test one’s ability to engage, to connect, and create content,” he added.
