TAP Digital Media extends satellite broadcast deal with ABS

The four SD channels will be on the MCPC media platform on the ABS-2 C-band East Hemi beam.

Filipino media company TAP Digital Media Ventures Corporation (TAPDMV) has extended its satellite broadcast partnership with ABS by adding four further channels on ABS-2 at 75° East.

The four SD Channels will be on the MCPC media platform on the ABS-2 C-band East Hemi beam offering the highest reliability for national TV networks and primary cable services.

The channels are: Premier Sports 2, home to PGA Tour golf and WTA Tour tennis; Premier Football, offering Germany’s Bundisliga and UEFA competitions; EdgeSport, a destination for action sports; and Comic U, focused on sci-fi, fantasy and supernatural genres.

Speaking about the extended partnership, Vincent Lim, MD of Asia Sales, said: “ABS is proud to support TAPDMV’s growth in the Philippines and beyond. Our three-year-old partnership with TAPDMV has grown from initially downlinking sporting events to broadcasting 10 channels today in the Philippines using the superior coverage of the C-band East Hemi beam.  We appreciate the trust that TAPDMV has placed in ABS and look forward to building our collaboration further to serve wider audiences with richer video solutions.”

Gonzalo de Guia, Chief Technology Officer of TapDMV, added: “TapDMV is pleased that we can once again rely on ABS to service the satellite distribution requirements of our four additional channels to our cable affiliates.  They continue to be a reliable partner in the expansion of our Pay Television endeavours in the Philippines.”
