Sky Cable Issues Statement on Alleged Manipulation of Signal During Eat Bulaga Airing

Sky Cable Issues Statement on Alleged Manipulation of Signal During Eat Bulaga Airing


Sky Cable has released an official statement in relation to GMA-7's complaint filed at the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) vehemently denying the allegation of intentional service interruption especially during the airing of Eat Bulaga's hit segment Kalyeseye.

SKY Cable Corporation, the country’s leading source of cable TV home entertainment, has been providing top-of-the-line services to our subscribers for the past 25 years. It has always been our primary aim to be at par with global standards and innovations in bringing world-class entertainment to every Filipino home. 

The complaint of GMA 7 with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) last August 25, 2015, regarding shortchanging of our SkyCable subscribers via irresponsible acts, is a malicious accusation and is without basis. 

If there were service interruptions that inconvenienced some of our subscribers, these were isolated and would have affected other channels, not only GMA 7. 

SKY is willing to cooperate with the NTC for any investigation they may wish to do regarding these incidents. 

To all our valued customers and stakeholders, we commit to take all necessary measures to give you the best service you deserve and continue working round-the-clock to minimize and immediately resolve any service interruptions in the future."

TFC and DFA - OVS Spread OFW Absentee Voting Awareness via Public Service Announcement feat. Atom Araullo

TFC and DFA - OVS Spread OFW Absentee Voting Awareness via Public Service Announcement feat. Atom Araullo


With the deadline for the worldwide registration for the 2016 elections coming to a close on October 31, premier Filipino network The Filipino Channel (TFC) and implementing arm of the Overseas Voting Act, Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Overseas Voting Secretariat (OVS) join hands anew to propagate the overseas Filipino’s (OF) right to vote.

TFC and DFA – OVS, partners since the 2013 elections, recently entered into a memorandum of agreement on August 26 at the ABS-CBN Corporation headquarters in Eugenio Lopez Jr. Communications Center (ELJCC) in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines to renew their commitment.

Managing Director for Asia Pacific of ABS-CBN Global Ltd. Philippine Branch Ailene Averion, says “TFC’s journey with OFs starts from the time he departs from the homeland and settles in his second home.  In their quest to give their families the best life possible, TFC provides the company of a Kapamilya through information and entertainment across our content platforms.  But beyond the physical and the necessary, we transcend roles and help our kababayans realize and act on what they can do for their country.” Averion further says “We concretize this by helping key government agency DFA OVS in its aim to reach out to Filipinos of voting age who can elect their next leaders by registering and exercising their right to vote.”

Since 2012, TFC has been laying out its platforms for the promotion of the OV act.  The network opened its events for on-site registration efforts and tapped no less than personalities such as Boy Abunda, Pokwang, Sam Milby, Eric Santos and Piolo Pascual to banner the 2012 campaign and Ted Failon, Atom Araullo, Maan Macapagal, Robi Domingo and Kim Chiu to headline the 2013 campaign.




Through concerted efforts of both public and private sector, the 2012 registration reached a milestone when it hit nearly a million total registered voters.   Moreover, in April of 2015, TFC’s campaign “Boto Mo, Kinabukasan ng Bawat Pilipino” earned a Silver Award from the prestigious 20th Anvil Awards held in Manila, for effective public relations communications.

According to DFA-OVS Chairperson Undersecretary Rafael Seguis credits the 85 posts all over the world for bringing the 2012 numbers to fore but he says media’s role is important and TFC’s contribution, undeniable.  Seguis says “The most important thing for us is for media to create awareness.  Thank you to ABS-CBN TFC for this kind of arrangement that will help create this kind of awareness for OV.  We have similar arrangements in the past but not of this magnitude.  Now we will be reaching even Africa because of TFC’s reach and popularity.” 

Recently, DFA OVS reported a milestone as records showed that new registrants have reached the 600,000 mark, bringing the new total to 608,516.   With this milestone, DFA OVS is pursuing more efforts to reach more Filipinos. 

To date, DFA OVS and COMELEC have opened a total of 13 overseas registration centers (OVRC) in the Philippines to reach Filipinos who are about to leave for overseas whether on a permanent or temporary basis.  These are the DFA Regional Consular Office in Davao, San Fernando Pampanga, and Cebu; and DFA Satellite Offices in Robinsons Galleria, SM Manila and Ali Mall; DFA Office of Consular Affairs in ASEAN Business Park in Paranaque; NAIA Terminals 1 to 3 in Pasay City, POEA in Ortigas, Mandaluyong, and Philippine Transmarine Carriers Inc. in Makati City, Marina at Kalaw City, Manila and CFO in Osmeña in Manila; and OWWA Training Center in Intramuros where ABS-CBN Middle East, Europe and Africa News Bureau Chief Danny Buenafe and Head of News Gathering Dindo Amparo personally registered themselves during the launch.

Moreover, DFA OVS and COMELEC OFOV completed the global accessibility of the internet voter registration when it launched in Asia Pacific on August 6, enabling more Filipinos of voting age to participate in the 2016 elections. 

With the partnership, DFA – OVS hopes to reach more Filipinos.  For the 2015 campaign, TFC unveiled a public service announcement led by Red Alert and Umagang Kay Ganda host Atom Araullo, that aims to convince the OFs to register employing through the irehistro.  Filipinos of voting age by the time of the 2016 elections, can visit irehistro.com.gov.ph, print their completed forms and go to the nearest Philippine post (Philippine Embassy, Consulate General, Mission, or Manila Economic and Culture Office [MECO]), field / mobile voting centers such a TFC events for their biometrics.

Deadline for overseas voting registration is on October 31, 2015 while the voting period for the 2016 Presidential Elections is from April to May 9, 2015.  For more information visit www.dfa-oavs.gov.ph and www. comelec.gov.ph

Watch: James Reid and Nadine Lustre Release Their Latest Date Adventures #SmartBigBytes


"On The Wings of Love" lead stars and this generation's most-admired loveteam James Reid and Nadine Lustre have released another kilig date adventures you should better watch.


Watch: Darren Espanto Performs "Chandelier" Live! The Best Version After Sia

Watch: Darren Espanto Performs "Chandelier" Live! The Best Version After Sia


Have you seen this video of Darren Espanto singing Sia's "Chandelier"?

The video which raked 762K hits (and counting) in 15 just days is making waves online. People from here and abroad are talking about how talented, wonderful this kid is. Even an American website 9GAG calls the The Voice Kids Season 1 Runner-up as "the Filipino kid who nailed Sia's Chandelier."



“Pretty Little Liars” Actress Ashley Benson Becomes 1980s Videogame Icon in “Pixels”

“Pretty Little Liars” Actress Ashley Benson Becomes 1980s Videogame Icon in “Pixels”


Popularly known for playing Hanna Marin in the hit show “Pretty Little Liars,” Ashley Benson makes the giant leap to the big screen with Columbia Pictures' new action-adventure “Pixels.”

Benson takes on the role of Lady Lisa, the film’s 1980s videogame icon, star of the fictional game Dojo Quest. “I get to play a videogame hero – I have two swords and I get to be a badass,” Benson explains. “I’d never worked with swords before, so that was cool. Plus, punching and kicking and beating up Josh Gad is always fun.”

Watch a featurette on Ashley Benson's Lady Lisa below:



In the film, Josh Gad's character, Ludlow Lamonsoff, is chasing the love of his life, which is a videogame character “It makes him sound insane, but he believes in a world where he can co-exist with Lady Lisa and run away with her,” explains Gad.

We wanted Ludlow to be in love with a female video game character from his childhood. We thought it was really sweet, but also showed that he’s a little pathetic,” says producer Allen Covert. “There weren’t a lot of game characters that fit that description so we came up with Dojo Quest and Lady Lisa. The best part was that we actually got to make it into a real game that you can play on your phone.

Costume designer Christine Wada’s great challenge was to create the look for Lady Lisa, the 1980s object of desire for the film’s fictional game, Dojo Quest. “In the end, there were 222 designs of her costume and hair,” Wada recalls. The reason it was such a great challenge was that Lady Lisa had to do so much: “She’s a character from the 80s, so the design has to feel backdated, but also work in a modern context. She had to be iconic, but the character would also have to handle stunts. And the design had to be able to handle visual effects, so there were certain boundaries that we had to work within.

Wada’s design melds numerous influences: the layered designs of 1980s swimsuits, crossed with Asian inspirations. “It’s a costume Ashley can actually move and fight in, but it’s also one that makes her look like a character that a teenage boy would fall in love with,” she says.

I love the costume so much,” says Benson. “It would be cool to see girls being Lady Lisa for Halloween.

In “Pixels,” as kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real.

When intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults -- and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN™, Donkey Kong™, Galaga™, Centipede®, and Space Invaders™. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.

Opening across the Philippines in August 26, “Pixels” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Edu Manzano and Lorna Tolentino Weigh-in on What's Best for Filipino Families: QUALITY or SAVINGS #SwitchAndSave

Edu Manzano and Lorna Tolentino Weigh-in on What's Best for Filipino Families: QUALITY or SAVINGS #SwitchAndSave


Following the successful Switch and Save campaigns of Tessa Prieto-Valdes in SM Aura, Iya Villania-Arellano in SM Cebu and Christian Bautista at the SM Mall of Asia, WATSONS - Asia’s leading health and beauty retailer - takes the #SwitchAndSave campaign further by including Watsons Generics ambassadors as Edu Manzano and Lorna Tolentino in its store visit campaign.

It is through the veterans actors' influence and expertise when it comes to health that Filipinos can be educated about their different health options, which will promote WATSONS drive to address the gaps of health literacy in the country.




As two of the most respected names in the Philippine entertainment industry for decades and Edu and Lorna’s endorsements have had a great impact on spreading awareness of WATSONS GENERICS LINE.

The two celebrities surprised shoppers at the SM Mall of Asia as they proudly wore the Watsons uniform and helped shoppers choose the best value products especially at the pharmacy section.

They even played a mini-game where shoppers were asked several questions and given the choice between SAVINGS or QUALITY.




We launched a new TVC last month with the same story that challenges you - when it comes to choosing medicines, are you for SAVINGS or QUALITY? And how you can get both simply by buying WATSONS GENERICS. You can save up to 80% and get over 170 years of pharmacy experience on its wide range of quality medicines,” relates Edu.




But more than their influence, Edu and Lorna are also role models when it comes to being proactive about taking care of one’s health.

As we age, we have to take extra care of our bodies, so I make sure that I have a stock of WATSONS Multivitamins + Iron regularly to boost my immune system. In the mornings I have the Calamansi Flavored Psyllium Fiber thats tangy and good for digestion,” the actor added.


For my body pains, I take Watsons Generics Paracetamol especially kapag pagod at puyat from tapings.” Edu also suggests the Cranberry capsules which is suitable for urinary tract infection and Luyang Dilaw for overall wellness.

Just like Edu, Lorna, takes vitamins regularly, “to boost my immune system, I take Ascorbic Acid, especially now na tag-ulan dahil mas madali tayo magkasakit and siyempre kapag puyatan sa taping or shooting.

To maintain her youthful glowing skin, Lorna credits WATSONS Glutathione, Vitamin E and Hyaluron Collagen Powder. “Kailangan healthy and beautiful ka rin from the inside,” the grandslam actress revealed.

Just like the WATSONS’ celebrity ambassadors you too can maximize your purchasing power allowing you to properly take care of your health and spend more on the things you really want in life.

Reminder: Celebrities are also human beings.

I know Lea Salonga, Sharon Cuneta, KC Concepcion, Bianca Gonzales will agree that gone ate those days when celebrities are so mindful of their public image. That they hide their true emotions with a smile. Worries about what people would say about them. 

In this days of social media, just like their fans, when you hit them, expect that they will strike back.

Several hours ago, Angelica Panganiban was caught in the same situation when some Instagram users react negatively to her post saying she was hitting on Bea Alonzo. 

Check out how the "Pangako Sa 'Yo" actress handled the allegations:

Meanwhile, Gerard stirs children’s musicality through the Making Music segment.

Another one is the Puzzles and Pattern segment of Alex, which helps kids develop skills in math and local thinking. This is perfectly complemented with Rissey’s Body Move segment that is all about physical development through dancing and exercising.

WWE Superstar John Cena Like You've Never Seen Him Before in "Trainwreck"

WWE Superstar John Cena Like You've Never Seen Him Before in "Trainwreck"



As a WWE Superstar, 15-time World Champion and the current United States Champion, John Cena combines his athleticism, charisma, strong work ethic and genuine personality to make him one of the brightest stars in WWE.

Cena has had starring roles in many films including “The Marine,” “12 Rounds” and “The Reunion.”
An actor new to many fans of funny movies, Cena now stars in Universal Pictures’ hit comedy “Trainwreck” as Amy Schumer’s well-meaning boyfriend Steven - a committed guy who wants to make an honest woman of her. Although they have been seeing each other regularly when our story begins, Amy just can’t seem to remain faithful to Steven, who is deeply upset to discover sexts from other men on her cell phone.

When Cena came in for a table read, the star of Monday Night Raw surprised everyone. “He got bigger laughs than anyone in the entire movie,” recalls director Apatow. “We just fell in love with him as a comedic actor.”

Although Cena has already appeared in several films, the performer is new to comedy. “This was an opportunity of a lifetime because it’s very different from what I normally do,” he says. Cena describes his character as a disciplined guy who’s the opposite of Amy. “Steven is a very in-shape, very OCD CrossFit instructor. All he can relate to is CrossFit, or working out or being strong. It’s just oil and water, the dynamic between the two of them. She just wants to party and to coast. Steven wants to be totally committed and monogamous.

Out of all those in the production, his leading lady was most impressed. “Of everyone in this movie, John will blow your mind the most,” adds Schumer, who notes that Cena ended up ad-libbing on the set. “I did not write most of his lines. He just would open his mouth and it would fly out.”

Cena was such a hit in “Trainwreck” that he already has a follow-up comedy. He will appear with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in “Sisters” in January 2016.

In “Trainwreck,” it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Schumer) head ever since she was a little girl that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo - enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment - but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.




Distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures, “Trainwreck” will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting August 26.
