Overseas Filipinos (OFs) can now express their love for their families in the homeland through E-MoneyPlus Inc.’s (EMPI) Kapamilya“Remit-A-Gift” service powered by myREMIT, in partnership with Scanasia Overseas Inc. Starting this June, Filipinos overseas can let their families receive their gifts of love via ABS-CBN’s
breakthrough service in the Philippines, ABS-CBN TVplus.
ABS-CBN Global Ltd. subsidiary EMPI, through its brand TFC myREMIT, now enables OFs to gift their families in the Philippines with the ABS-CBN TVplus which brings clear digital television signal, providing clearer image and sound with six free-to-air channels.
EMPI Global Marketing Head for Remittance Eric Santos affirms that the new gifting service is a way for OFs to express their love for their families in the Philippines beyond the usual remittance. He says “Before, OFs used to express their love and commitment to their families through remittance. But now, with myREMIT’s 'Remit-A-Gift,' they may also express their
affection through gifts, such as the ABS-CBN TVPlus. This is just the start of more Kapamilya gifting services to come.”
EMPI General Manager Gilbert Bugia further enthuses, “Television is a big part of every Filipino’s life and ABS-CBN TVPlus is all about giving Filipinos the best digital TV viewing experience. We at myREMIT passionately believe “Ibang Magmalasakit ang Kapamilya” and view remittance as beyond sending money – that it is the sending of “care” to loved ones. This unique opportunity to be a part of it all, through ‘Remit-A-Gift’ is truly an honor.”
ABS-CBN TVplus, the most recent addition to the Philippines’ largest broadcasting network ABS-CBN’s product portfolio is dubbed "the future of Philippine TV” and “the biggest innovation on free TV today.” Promising to "change the way people watch TV in the Philippines," ABS-CBN TVplus or “the mahiwagang black box” offers free-TV channels powered by digital transmission and includes ABS-CBN (Channel 2) and ABS-CBN Sports + Action.
With a one-time payment only, the ABS-CBN TVplus also offers cable-like experience with the inclusion of four more free channels: Yey! (Children’s channel), Cinemo! (first 24-hour movie channel on free digital TV); DZMM Teleradyo (live news and incisive commentary with both radio and television platforms), and Knowledge Channel (curriculum-based programs for students).
The gifting service exclusively offered by myREMIT will be available in all participating myRemit affiliates and remittance tie-ups around the world. OFs can purchase the ABS-CBN TVplus boxes by ordering online through www.tfcmyremit.com . Once an order has been made, payment can be made through a credit-to-bank remittance transaction. After the payment has been made, EMPI will confirm the gift purchase and will then facilitate the
