“Millions of Filipinos are now benefiting from the features of TVplus at home. TVplus has raised the standards in TV viewing in the Philippines,” said Charles Lim, ABS-CBN head of Access.
ABS-CBN TVplus offers more channels, with a lineup that includes ABS-CBN S+A, DZMM TeleRadyo, Knowledge Channel, CineMo and YeY.
In 2018, it expanded its users’ viewing choices with the launch of Asianovela Channel, and Movie Central plus Jeepney TV, MYX and O Shopping.
This year, ABS-CBN TVplus added more public service features on top of the emergency warning broadcast system through partnerships with the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration; Metro Manila Development Authority; and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council to give Filipinos access to real-time updates on weather, traffic and disasters.
It also issues advisories on work and class suspensions as well as prices of commodities with the help of ABS-CBN News.
Meanwhile, in partnership with TrabaHanap, it helps Filipinos looking for jobs through job alerts. The enhanced user experience comes with TVplus updates and the Kapamilya Box Office schedules.
