The Cignal-TV5 & ABS-CBN tie-up happening very soon?

  • Page Views 513
  • If there’s a will, there’s a way. And what is that oft-quoted other saying again? Yes, when God closes a door somehow He opens a window. In the case of beleaguered network ABS-CBN, after its franchise was not renewed middle of last year, not just one but several windows were opened for it, one of them a huge timeslot in Bro. Eddie Villanueva’s channel, aptly named A2Z Channel.

    Don’t blink now but the rumored partnership between Cignal-TV5 and ABS-CBN may be happening sooner than expected. If this pushes through, it will definitely be a big boost for the Kapamilya channel to extend its free-TV coverage all across the country via Cignal-Kapatid TV5’s nationwide reach.

    There has always been a buzz about the possibility of this partnership because, as we all know, Cignal has been carrying ABS-CBN channels (Kapamilya Channel, Jeepney, Cinemo, Knowledge Channel) on its cable TV platform. And with free-TV so within reach with Cignal-TV5, a bigger partnership is expected to be in the offing. With the buzz getting louder these days, there is likely something bigger and better brewing between both camps.

    It’s going to be a win-win situation for both networks for sure if such partnership is finalized. ABS-CBN gets its wider free-TV reach nationwide, and TV5 becomes an extended home to the biggest stars in the industry. Both Kapamilya and Kapatid viewers stand to benefit from this possible partnership, so it’s all good if it happens soon.

    The bigwigs of both networks are mum on the matter at the moment. Funfare sources said that the big announcement will be made at a presscon anytime…this week? (R. Lo, PS)
