Ex With Benefits Now on SKY Pay-Per-View

Gino M. Santos’ big screen adaptation of the highly popular Wattpad novel, Ex With Benefits, is both beautiful  and a controversial glimpse into a world of high-powered careers dangerously mixed with love and the pain of separation. It follows the story of Adam Castrences (portrayed by Derek Ramsey) and Arkisha Aragon (portrayed by Coleen Garcia) – on how love brought them together and how pain kept them apart.

The love between Adam and Arkisha began innocent enough. But their young love, as fiery and passionate as it was, ended in terrible heartbreak for reasons Adam could never understand. To Adam, Arkisha was always the one that got away. Ten years later, love and happiness continued to elude Adam – until he met Arkisha again.

Their reunion was explosive, leading to more physical, more arduous expressions of love being displayed on-screen. But intentions this time were far from pure, as Arkisha, now a top medical representative, simply needed Adam’s endorsement, given his status as a renowned doctor. Here the story revolves on the realities of adult life, when the boundaries of what is personal muddles with one’s career.

Ex with Benefits reminds viewers that love and life is never simple, and that sometimes, situations fall in grey boundaries, where right or wrong is never clear-cut. Now for just P199 pesos, you too can explore the more complex aspects of romance during a three-day unlimited viewing of Ex With Benefits on its TV premiere from the 15th to 30th of November 2015.

Now on its 9th season, The Voice US is among the most popular singing competition that the world has ever witnessed. While a lot of its renown can be attributed to the incredible talent it showcases year after year, a lot of its prestige comes from its judges that represent the standards of the music industry today. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton hail from the original cast of judges, with their respective careers as both performers and producers firmly establishing their place in the show. In contrast, both Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani joined in the recent years, replacing CeeLo Green and Christina Aguilera respectively.

While she was chosen for elimination during the Battle Rounds by her former coach Pharrell, she got her second chance when both Blake and Adam opted to steal her.
