Techbox Philippines, the fastest growing gadget retail chain in the country, is advocating the growth and patronage of Original Pilipino Music (OPM) by pre-loading OPM songs in the MicroSD cards they sell.
“We are very excited about this initiative as it results to so many good things without requiring any extra effort from our customers,” says Angela Gutierrez, Business Unit Head for Techbox Philippines. “Not only does this project help prevent music piracy, it also helps protect the gadgets of our customers from security vulnerabilities that users can get from downloading from unreliable sources,” added Angela.
“Moreover, as a subsidiary of TAO Corporation – a Filipino company that takes pride in supporting local talent — we are eager to promote and support the growth of OPM,” said Angela.
Techbox Philippines currently offers three variants of their OPM-preloaded MicroSD. The ‘Happy’ card includes hits such as “Biglang Liko” by Ron Henley feat. Pow Chavez, “Hip-Notize” by Solenn feat.
