Orbit Says GMA Pinoy To Be Replaced By TFC Channels


This post is intended for Filipinos in Saudi Arabia

GMA Pinoy

I was surprised to see in our TV screen that GMA 7 Pinoy Channel will now be replaced by TFC (The Filipino Channel)  starting April 28,2013. This message is not sent by mistake by The Dubai-based TV operator OSN ( Orbit ). I called orbit and I got a confirmation that Filipino’s will not be able to watch GMA shows through Orbit.

There is no further information about the sudden change of Orbit programming. I will let you know as soon as we got any information about the changes.

I believe that this will have an effect on GMA Channel 7 in the Middle East since many Filipinos are now subscribed in Orbit.

Update : I just saw a news article telling the same news as mentioned above >> Here.

According to the news, Orbit dropped GMA 7 and acquire rights for the TFC Broadcasting on the other hand , Regional rights to those GMA 7 channels, along with another called GMA News TV, were recently acquired by the Dubai-based My-HD Media.

    Hello, I just want to ask about TFC updates on OSN? It’s been a week now and we still don’t have TFC and ANC. Only Bro and CinemaOne. This is really frustrating as we really miss Filipino channels (and… because we already paid for this subscription. hehe)
