NTC orders ABS-CBN to stop TVPlus in Metro Manila

/ 07:35 PM June 30, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) ordered television giant ABS-CBN to stop operating digital television transmission through their TV Plus via Channel 43 in Metro Manila.

The order is the second blow that the NTC dealt the embattled network on Tuesday, following a separate order asking ABS-CBN subsidiary Sky Cable to shutdown its direct broadcast satellite service, Sky Direct.

In its latest order, the NTC argued that ABS-CBN’s TV Plus was included in the list of radio and TV stations it had ordered shut in its May 5 order.


The commission said it issued the alias cease and desist order after it monitored digital TV transmission on Channel 43. The programs monitored were Cine Mo! Yey!, DZMM Teleradyo, and KBO pay-per-view.

The order follows NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba’s vow to halt ABS-CBN’s airing of programs on Channel 43 amid the network’s bid for a fresh 25-year franchise.
