Kris Aquino on Network Transfer: "I'll consider what my audience wants."

Posted on January 4, 2014 | 10:52 AM

Just recently, Queen of all media Kris Aquino was rumored to leave ABS-CBN for rival network GMA-7. Her transfer to the Kapuso network is said to be 90% sure, according to a source (read details here).

Kris Aquino network transfer

Kris Aquino, who is currently in London to bond with sons Bimby and Josh, said that the vacation is also her way of evading intrigues. "Para iwas intriga na rin muna kasi napapabalita 'yung pagre-renew [ng contract]. Magmumuni-muni po at aalis," she told ABS-CBN News.

On Friday, however, Kris posted a meaningful message on Instagram, pertaining to the much talked-about network transfer. Kris said that she's asking for guidance and wisdom about a big decision she will make.

"Good Morning from London... Going to Mass at noon. First Friday, time to bring back my Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion... Time to say THANK YOU, for the blessing of 300 million +++ in the box office for My Little Bossings... Time to ask for GUIDANCE & WISDOM..."

Kris also said that in making this decision, she will consider what her fans want, apart from what's beneficial for his two sons. 

"Pls know that whatever decision I make, apart from considering what will be most beneficial for my 2 sons, it's very important to me to consider what you, my audience, wants... That's why it's good for me to be away now, to just be w/ my sons, so that I can reflect very carefully... God bless you all. Happy 1st Friday of 2014!"

Kris Aquino is slated to return from vacation this January 9 and also set to have a "big announcement" the same day. Could it be about the rumored network transfer? We'll see.

ABS-CBN News Most Subscribed YouTube Channel in Southeast Asia

Posted on December 20, 2013 | 6:01 PM

ABS-CBN News remains the most trusted Philippine TV news organization in the country, with its official website abs-cbnNEWS.com setting a new all-time record of 72.7 million page views in November, according to the audience measurement analytics provider Effective Measure.

ABS-CBN News is Most Trusted Online

ABS-CBN News website’s page views were bolstered over these previous months by high interest for information from news audiences about the Zamboanga siege, the strong earthquake and the super typhoon Yolanda that devastated the central Philippines.

On social media, ABS-CBN is still the most preferred news source among TV networks with its official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/abscbnNEWS) garnering more than 2.2 million likes, and its Twitter accounts being followed by a total of 2.9 million people.

Its YouTube account, on the other hand, maintains its standing as the media channel with the most subscriptions in Southeast Asia with over 1.4 million subscribers.

ABS-CBN News’ Social Media and Mobile head Arlene Burgos expressed how she and her team are overwhelmed by the trust given them by Filipino netizens. “We thank everyone who believes in us. These figures motivate us to work harder,” she said.

But more than the affirmation of the network’s credibility to the public, Burgos said these numbers represent how many Filipinos are still abreast with what’s happening in and out the country and how they remain involved as citizens. “Social media can be used in so many ways and it’s good to know that millions of Filipinos still read the news using their laptops, tablets, smartphones, or mobile phones.”

ABS-CBN Mobile Opens First Store

Posted on December 13, 2013 | 3:03 PM

ABS-CBNmobile signaled its commercial launch by opening its first store in the country on Wednesday (Dec 11) where consumers can buy SIM cards, gadgets, and prepaid load.

ABS-CBN Mobile Opens First Store

ABS-CBN chairman Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III said that ABS-CBNmobile will change the way Filipinos use their mobile devices and consume content by giving them the choice to watch their favorite programs at their chosen time and place, aside from allowing them to send text messages, make calls, and browse the Internet.

“Today, it is a novelty in the Philippines. But sooner than we think, this will become the norm, like it is becoming the standard viewing practice in Japan and Korea,” Lopez said during the store’s grand opening.

“This is the beginning of a new age in Philippine media. ABS-CBN’s programs on phones and tablets will change the boundaries of time and location,” he added.

ABS-CBNmobile’s iWanTV app allows users to watch programs on ABS-CBN, ANC, Studio 23, Nickelodeon, E!, and Knowledge Channel.

ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio, meanwhile, said that fans will also be able to chat with and get exclusive content from their favorite stars through a special app available on ABS-CBNmobile.

“Today’s fans don’t just want to watch TV; they want to participate, they want to interact, they want to make their choice. It is how our company moves into the new age of media. And we are optimistic about it because we have our content that affirms, and our stars with their authentic relationship with the audience,” Santos-Concio said.

Launched in November, ABS-CBNmobile sought to help the survivors of super typhoon Yolanda by giving away100,000 SIM cards that they can use to communicate with their loved ones. The mobile service also launched a “share load” program by which subscribers can give load to the survivors.

“We might not have been able to launch with a fantastic ad campaign that our marketing team developed, but we are very proud of the fact that our improvised launch allowed us to show what ABS-CBNmobile really stood for – to be of service to the Filipino people,” said ABS-CBN Convergence head Carlo Katigbak.

ABS-CBN Convergence is ABS-CBN’s mobile telecommunications subsidiary and operates ABS-CBNmobile.

Also present during the grand opening were ABS-CBN executives led by Customer Relationship Management head and ABS-CBNmobile Marketing head Nandy Villar, and ABS-CBN stars and ABS-CBNmobile endorsers Erich Gonzales and Julia Montes.

The ABS-CBNmobile store is located on the ground floor of ABS-CBN’s ELJ Communications Center in Quezon City. For more information, just visit www.abscbnmobile.com, or follow @abscbnmobile on Twitter.

More Filipino households across urban and rural homes nationwide tuned in to the top-caliber programs produced by ABS-CBN Corporation this November, scoring an average audience share of 44%, or 11 points ahead of GMA’s audience share of 33%, based on recent data from Kantar Media.

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while the other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has only 1,980 homes based solely in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.

Data showed that ABS-CBN maintained its primetime (6PM-12MN) supremacy with an average audience share of 48%, or 16 points higher than GMA’s 32%. The strong performance was driven by the network’s quality line-up of drama teleseryes, including the number one most watched program “Honesto” with an average national TV rating of 28.9%.

ABS-CBN Primetime Bida also ruled in other key territories such as Balance Luzon (areas in Luzon outside Mega Manila) with an average audience share of 51% compared to GMA’s 33%; in Visayas where it recorded 65%, or more than thrice as GMA’s 20%; and in Mindanao with 62% against GMA’s 23%.

The primetime block is the most important part of the day when most Filipinos watch TV and advertisers put a larger chunk of their investment in to reach more consumers effectively.

Aside from leading in primetime, ABS-CBN also continued to beat other networks across all programming blocks.

The morning (6AM-12MN) block recorded an average audience share of 37% vs GMA’s 33%.

The early afternoon (12NN-3PM) block hit 41%, while GMA got 37%. It was driven by the noontime show “It’s Showtime,” which again overtook “Eat Bulaga” in ratings game.

ABS-CBN’s late afternoon block (3PM-6PM) scored 43%, or 11-point higher than GMA’s 32%.

“TV Patrol” remained as the most trusted TV newscast as it registered an average national TV rating of 27.5% beating again GMA’s “24 Oras” with only 17.2%. It also clinched the second spot on the top 15 list of most watched programs in the country in November.

Judy Ann Santos’ “Bet On Your Baby” (26.2%), on the other hand, climbed to the fourth spot from seventh place in the previous month.

Overall, 12 out of the country’s top 15 most watched programs were produced by ABS-CBN (click here for the complete list of Top 15 programs nationwide).
