There are a lot of talks going on with regards to ABS-CBN’s franchise permit and things might go south for the broadcasting network if the Congress fails to act in favor of the channel studio come March 2020.
Television channels and radio stations will be affected and will have to stop its operation if the franchise permit is not renewed. People who grew up with ABS-CBN are left to wonder what will happen to the series that they love to watch of the permit expires? What will happen to Coco Martin’s long-time running Ang Probinsiyano? How are we going to watch the latest news if ABS-CBN ceased to operate?
Let’s go back down to memory lane and reminisce some of the Kapamilya shows that became part of our growing up years.
This is where John Lloyd Cruz, Kaye Abad, Baron Geisler, and the gang rose to their fame and eventually became bankable stars of their own.
The older generation had Sesame Street, for us we had Batibot. Kuya Bodjie, Pong Pagong, Madam Bola. Just the mention of those characters bring back happy memories!
Inspiring stories are always welcome in this cynical world. Rated K never disappoints and have aways inspired a person to do good and become better.
Who would not want magic to exist? Before Harry Potter, before Stranger Things, us Pinoys had Wansapanataym and its fantastical adventures
My love for music and local acts was shaped primarily by MYX and its shows throughout the years.
These are just a few of the shows on ABS-CBN that inspired us and helped us in developing our interests for TV shows, films, music, etc. Quite frankly, there’s politics swinging behind the news about the planned shutdown of the network. President Duterte even told the network bosses to just “sell it”.
But there is a good news that we recently heard that brings some spark of hope for the network and its audience.
Senator Sotto said that the network can still operate until 2022 as long as their is a pending application before the franchsie permit expires in March.
The only thing that coild hinder this development is if the quo warranto petition filed by SolGen Calida will be granted.
Woild you like this to happen to ABS-CBN?
Celebrities and employees are joining forces in effort to stop the shutdown. Netizens and ABS-CBN supporters cry #NoToShutdown #NoToABSCBNShutdown to show their love and support for ABS-CBN.
