Who is ABS-CBN?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the television network in the Philippines. For mother company, see ABS–CBN Corporation.
ABS-CBN commonly referred to as the Kapamilya Network (literally means “part of the family”) or simply Dos (means “2″), is a major commercial television network in the Philippines owned and operated by the ABS-CBN Corporation. It was launched in October 23, 1953 just a few months after the first broadcast of NHK of Japan. It has then become known as the first commercial network in Asia since NHK is publicly funded. It’s headquarters is in Quezon City.
Today the flagship terrestrial television channel is DWWX-TV or channel 2 hence the name Dos. The network operates through its 25 fully-owned originating television stations, 35 relay television stations and 8 affiliate regional television network. It is also available worldwide on cable television and direct-to-home satellite through The Filipino Channel as well as in iptv, and internet.
The network is set for digital broadcasting by the end of 2011 and just waiting for the “go signal” from the NTC. The network is already using HD cameras on its local shows although the pictures are re-scaled to accommodate the market needs. It is plan that by 2015, the network will start broadcasting in HD.
