It’s finally available in Cagayan de Oro! The ABS-CBN TVplus or “Mahiwagang Black Box” was officially launched in Cagayan de Oro through a ceremonial switch-on today, May 27, 2016. This means that more Filipinos nationwide can now watch exclusive channels and superior entertainment content in dramatically clear digital picture and sound.
The ABS-CBN TVplus is now available in Cagayan de Oro! This makes CDO the second major region in Mindanao to experience digital TV – the other one being Davao.
When I received the invitation to attend the launch, I knew it was something I just couldn’t pass up on especially since ABS-CBN has been very nice and accommodating to me and my projects. Plus of course they’re the first media and entertainment company in the Philippines to make the historic switch from analog to digital terrestrial television. Pretty exciting!
ABS-CBN morning show “Pamahaw Espesyal” host Nicole Abas-Datayan served as the host during the grand ABS-CBN TV Plus CDO launch. She looked radiant as ever. So nice to see her again.
ABS-CBN Northern Mindanao Station Manager Donna Ocampo also delivered a few words. She said that bringing TVplus to CDO was a year in the making! I bet all ABS-CBN loyal viewers are now very excited to get their hands on a unit.
Tadaaa – check out the new look of the ABS-CBN TVplus! It’s now sleeker and smaller but still comes at a very affordable, one-time payment fee of only Php 1,999.00 NO monthly or installation fees.
Apart from watching TV shows in crystal-clear quality, Kagay-anons can also access four (4) more exclusive free-to-air channels including CineMo, Yey, DZMM TeleRadyo and Knowledge Channel.
