ABS-CBN updates its digital lineup, adds new channels

Come July 30, ABS-CBN will unveil new digital channels.

Movie Central, Asianovela Channel, Jeepney TV, Myx, and O Shopping will be available via UHF 16 in Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Bulacan, and parts of Pampanga and UHF 36 in Metro Cebu.

This is seen as a response to Solar’s recent moves to make a profit off of DTT via their exclusive, subscription-only service through their Easy TV box and to respond to viewer requests to expand their offerings.

It was initally speculated ABS would use UHF 35 in partnership with El Shaddai’s DBS, but eventually decided to go their own way.

Unless our regulators take a firm stand on conditional access, expect DTT to be a new battleground in the ever-escalating feud between Solar and ABS-CBN at the expense of us, the viewing public.

In my own words: SONA 2018

It’s the time of the year again where the chief executive will face the joint session of congress to address the nation on what achievements the government has accomplished.

While the other blog will just rant like a crybaby he truly is (and how he keeps parroting that “I told you so” line just to prove how right he was and how highly he thinks of himself, he’s getting on my nerves lately, I don’t know why, maybe because he’s taking his arrogance up a notch? Akala ko ba titigil mo na yang blog mo? Your Tagalog sucks by the way but your high-flown English doesn’t make you sound smart, it just proves how much of a know-it-all asshole you are, ciao!), I will provide insights that will be as balanced as possible.

This blog has rarely been active nowadays due to real life commitments, I’m a graduating student, and has lost interest in blogging because of a variety of reasons, and some potential backlash.

Two years ago, I was a staunch supporter of the administration, two years later, kung hindi naman tuluyang nawala, nabawasan ang suporta ko because of many factors. As a matter of fact, I even got on the nerves of some real life friends dahil paiba-iba na daw ang isip ko. In my defense, I’m putting my own principles first and I’m not thinking in purely black and white, that is critical thinking. Wala na ako dyan kung di ko man kayo makumbinsi, at least I made a point.

Another reason why I’m losing interest is that they’re not just that delivering on whatever they promised. I keep telling myself I’d rather talk about foreign politics because I can talk about it in depth without pissing people off. At natututo tayo. Federalism is trial and error with the method of government and the pacing of reforms, Chinese encroachment is overlooked, inflation and tax reform, you name it. But I don’t want to piss myself off and piss others off, all I care is that they build more trains. Sabi nga ng nanay ko, di ko naman hawak ang mga bagay na yan.

Need I say more? Di na siguro. Basta nababanas lang ako kay Timo, ay este sa isa dyan na saksakan ng yabang. Unlike that crybaby na di raw manonood pero ang lakas magmonitor sa coverage, I will watch but won’t pay that much of an attention, unless something urgent is brought up. Collective guilt mo mukha mo, Mr. Know-It-All. Someone must slap you with reality so you won’t have to pretend to be woke, di ka lang talaga mahal ng nanay mo. Umuwi ka na sa Cebu, ikaw yata long-lost child ng mga Chiong na napadpad sa Pampanga.

That’s enough for me, hanggang sa susunod kung gaganahan pa ako magsulat dito. Toxic na nga ang diskurso dito, dagdagdag pa ba ako?
