The Filipino Channel (TFC), the premier Filipino network in the world, bridges the gap between Filipinos in Hong Kong and their homeland further by providing top-rate Kapamilya programs via now TV’s channel 725.
Kapamilyas in Hong Kong can now watch a wide range of content from news to entertainment shows, as screened by Hong Kong’s top pay TV provider now TV.
Pinoys can enjoy favorite TFC teleseryes such as “Bridges of Love” starring celebrated screen stars Jericho Rosales, Maja Salvador and Paulo Avelino; “Pangako Sa `Yo” with popular love team KathrynBernardo and Daniel Padilla, and “Nathaniel” starring newest Kapamilya angel Marco Masa. TFC also provides English subtitles for some of the programs for the benefit of non-Filipino speaking viewers watching the current teleseryes.
Filipinos in Hong Kong can also see long-running TFC shows such as “ASAP,” “It’s Showtime,” and “Maalaala Mo Kaya.” They can also be up to speed with current affairs in the Philippines through news programs such as the award-winning “TV Patrol” led by Noli de Castro, Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon.
ABS-CBN Asia Pacific Managing Director, Ailene Averion, said the availability of TFC programs via now TV is a proof of the network’s commitment to be “In the Service of the Filipino worldwide.” Averion said: “As part of our mission to deliver the best programming to Filipinos wherever they may be in the world, we search for partners with the same kind of unwavering commitment that we have. Thanks to now TV’s reach, more Filipinos in Hong Kong will now be able to enjoy a ‘piece of home’ via TFC programs from their homeland.”
Loke Kheng Tham, PCCW’s Executive Vice President of Pay TV, said: “now TV is Hong Kong’s largest pay TV provider, offering more than 190 top-class channels to our 1.2 million customers. Adding TFC to our lineup further demonstrates now TV’s commitment to providing all customers with a wide range of program choices.
