ABS-CBN, MMDA, Pagasa and NDRRMC officials during the signing ceremony for the INFOplus partnershipABS-CBN TVplus users now have access to important and helpful information through the INFOplus public service feature recently made available on the boxes.
“Digital TV is not just about providing crystal-clear reception. For ABS-CBN TVplus, it is also about making our users informed with important and helpful information without additional costs,” said Charles Lim, ABS-CBN head of Access.
TVplus joined forces with Pagasa (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration), MMDA (Metro Manila Development Authority) and NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council) to give real-time updates on weather, traffic and disasters.
ABS-CBN News will provide essential advisories such as announcements on work and class suspensions and prices of commodities, while TrabaHanap will deliver job alerts.
Users can also check TVplus updates and the weekly Kapamilya Box Office schedule on INFOplus.
Households with no internet connection can access all of these for free by pressing the red button on their TVplus remote.
INFOplus adds to ABSCBN TVplus’ previously launched public service feature, the built-in emergency warning broadcast system or EWBS that delivers safety alerts and tips on staying safe when disasters strike. More information about INFOplus will be announced soon. (Story/Photos by: Kane Choa)
