Expanded Pinoy content on SKY
By Nico Erle Ciriaco
SKY Cable Corporation continues to expand their entertainment options in the digital platform with more Filipino content. The company recently partnered with Viva Communications in its efforts of diversifying further their offerings through the addition of premier pay TV channel Pinoy Box Office (PBO) to their line-up.
With over 180 SD and HD channels, SKYcable is the Philippines’ biggest digital cable TV provider. As PBO now joins the line-up, it further widens the array of viewing selections. With PBO, subscribers can now enjoy a wider choice of new blockbusters, well-loved Pinoy classics, sold-out concert shows, and many more special programs 24/7. PBO exclusively features Viva productions that feature top artists like Sarah Geronimo, Anne Curtis, Sharon Cuneta, Robin Padilla, Judy Anne Santos, Vice Ganda, Vilma Santos, and a host of other stars. The channel also shows box-office hits from other major Filipino film producers.
Apart from the addition of new channels to the line-up, subscribers are given the privilege to customize their respective cable TV viewing by choosing to add-on SD and/or HD channels to their basic plan via SKYcable Select. It is also the first and only cable TV provider in the country that lets viewers pause, record, and rewind live TV programs with iRecord.
Let PBO host your family movie nights every 9:30 pm as each day brings a different genre. Sundays bask in the glory and stardom of each month’s featured celebrity on PBO Presents. Winning films from the country’s most celebrated directors run on Mondays with PBO Direk. Tuesday nights are PBO Senti with iconic Filipino tearjerkers. Power-packed action movies of superstars grace midweek boob-tube screens on PBO Aksyon, while hilarious schlock and youth-oriented films come to life on Thursdays for PBO Sweets. Friday nights come as a special treat with PBO First Class when cineastes enjoy award-winning films and blockbusters. Capping the week on Saturdays, catch the pay TV debut of the country’s newly-released films. On the same day, satisfy your fanatic cravings with two films from your favorite star or genre on PBO Back2Back.
For the shows you might have missed, catch them Mondays through Thursdays at 1:30 pm. You can also turn your lazy Sundays into viewing parties as the most requested movies are shown on PBO Marathon Sunday from 1:30 in the afternoon ‘til 7:30 in the evening.
