The Filipino Channel
FILIPINOS across the globe now enjoy a more specialized TV viewing experience as ABS-CBN Global brings a dedicated feed of The Filipino Channel (TFC) f
or each of the high-concentration Filipino markets. The seven TFC signals cater to the USA, Canada West, Canada East, Middle East, Europe, Australia and Asia Pacific, which includes Japan. As new technology allows for specialized program or commercial insertion, advertisements targeted to a specific geographic market will be seen only in that region. The content is also filtered and customized to meet the cultural nuances of subscribers’ host countries.
“We hope that this latest development will help TFC subscribers get the most out of our service. Expect ABS-CBN Global to remain at the forefront of bringing innovative products and services to Filipinos around the world,” said ABS-CBN Global chief operations officer Raffy Lopez. “We are ushering in another milestone to align with our TFC subscribers’ preference with regard to the way they want to enjoy our programs,” added ABS-CBN Global content head Ned Legaspi. Additionally, in the Middle East and Australia, TFC has replaced the audio channel DZMM with DZMM Teleradyo.
Teleradyo is a fusion of three multimedia platforms—radio, television and the Internet. Spontaneity and timeliness are maintained while the onscreen information boxes feature useful information. Reach is also optimized with the vast network of the Internet. DZMM Teleradyo
is aired live and in real time, providing a venue for interaction between subscribers and the radio anchors in Manila.
