What better way to reward a family member who is about to start a new chapter of his life with a new laptop that he can use every day? A laptop is an extension of every student’s academic life that will serve as his companion during all-nighters and other school projects.

Macbook Pro’s 13-inch model with Retina Display is a perfect match for every student who is about to conquer a fresh semester. It’s portable, lightweight, and sleek enough to carry every day to school –a worthwhile investment that would last for years.

2. High speed home and mobile internet for the out and about high school student

As an Internet connection has effectively replaced having an arsenal of encyclopedias at home, a reliable home internet connection is a must. Better if it is an ultra-fast connection as it is critical for students to quickly access information for school requirements – from scholarly journals they need to cite in their research papers to videos they need to stream for a critique paper.

Besides a home internet, a student can do no wrong with a mobile internet connection. Teens who have to do homework while away from home can easily fulfill their school requirements when they have a handy mobile internet they can carry wherever they want.

3. Cable television for the little preschooler

Cable TV is still a powerful learning platform. A diverse cable channel lineup allows preschoolers to consume important information, while being entertained by their favorite educational shows.

High definition channels that give a lifelike feel to the cable shows also makes learning engaging as kids watch cartoon shows that teach good values and help shape their character.

One SKY Premium, SKY’s all-in bundle offers unlimited internet, HD cable TV, and mobile internet, and now with a special offer featuring a 13-inch Macbook Pro is the perfect all-in-one back-to-school essential.

One SKY Premium plans were launched last October 2016 to enrich the digital entertainment experience of Filipino families by offering all-in-one, convenient bundles. The latest development also complements ABS-CBN’s transition into a digital company as SKY Cable is a unit of the Lopez-owned corporation.

SKY Cable Corporation is the first to introduce cable television to Filipinos in 1990. Since then, it has been a frontrunner in technology and cable TV content by being the first to design a highly customized viewing experience among subscribers, and offering the most number of HD channels. Its properties have expanded beyond pay TV and now includes One SKY Premium (unlimited all-in-one plans), One SKY Lite (consumable all-in-one plans), SKY On Demand (video-on-demand), SKYmobi (mobile internet), SKYcable (pay TV), and SKYdirect (direct-to-home pay TV).
