Kris Aquino Reigns on TV, Online with Launch of Own Mobile App

Posted on February 7, 2014 | 8:42 PM

As the Queen of All Media continues her reign in the Kapamilya Network, BIG adventures await us this 2014!

In celebration of Kris Aquino’s birthday month this February, she treats her viewers through extending the Kris RealiTV Experience! Starting February 10, Kris TV will air from 7:30 in the morning until 9:00 am. As part of our one hour and a half bonding, Kris welcomes us into her home to recollect all the experiences and learning she has picked up from our Kris RealiTV episodes!

KrisTV Airs Earlier and Longer

To kick off our extended bonding, Kris TV conquers the Middle East as Kris explores two of the seven emirates of UAE – Abu Dhabi and Dubai! Kris finally gets the opportunity to experience what it has to offer – from must-visit food destinations to must-try adventures!

Kris challenges herself to explore Dubai’s desert safari through 4×4 ride across the desert, water adventures aboard the Yellow Boat, tour of the world’s most luxurious hotel – Burl Al Arab and the newly-opened 900-million-peso-project – The Dubai Miracle Garden! The Queen of All Media also goes on a culinary adventure to try the best Middle Eastern dishes in Dubai!

Most importantly, Kris also immerses herself at the largest Pinoy community in Dubai – Al Satwa, and experiences the lives of Pinoys working in the Middle East! More than the destinations and the activities, this will be the heart of her Dubai feature. Kris gathers inspiring and heart-warming stories of our Kapamilyas there, who struggle against the feeling of “being alone and away from the family,” just to provide for those they have left here in the Philippines.

As a surprise, Kris TV lets them experience a hot air balloon ride which lets them see the beauty of the desert paradise from thousands of feet above from the ground!

PLUS, Kris wraps up her Middle Eastern journey in a travel at UAE’s capital – Abu Dhabi to experience the Ferrari World – the largest indoor amusement park in the world!

Moreso, expect Kris TV’s stronger presence online and on-ground on its journey to year three! Kris TV Fun Finds Benefit Bazaar will become an annual event! Mobile users can also get an easy-access to Kris’s personal life through the upcoming launch of Kris Aquino App on ABS-CBN Mobile. This mobile app features daily 8-minuter premium downloadable content featuring the side of Kris not usually seen on TV!

Dahil sa ating mas pinahabang bonding, “Paniguradong masayang muli ang kwento natin Kapamilya!”

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.

ABS-CBN Mobile Now Available; 100,000 Free Sim Cards Given Away to Yolanda Survivors

Posted on November 20, 2013 | 8:31 PM

ABS-CBNmobile announced it is giving away 100,000 SIM cards for free to the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda to help them connect and communicate with their loved ones.

Piolo, John Lloyd, Bea, Kim and Enrique for ABS-CBNmobile

The announcement was made at ABS-CBN’s “Tulong Na, Tabang Na, Tayo Na! An All-Star Benefit Concert” aired on ABS-CBN Sunday night (Nov 17) by actor Piolo Pascual, who also appears in the TV spot along with ABS-CBN stars John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu, and Enrique Gil.

The SIM cards will be given away along with relief packages, in tandem with Sagip Kapamilya relief efforts in several Yolanda-hit areas.

Each ABS-CBNmobile SIM card has free prepaid load worth P50, 15 free texts to all networks, and 5MB of Internet that the survivors can use to connect with their loved ones.

Kapamilyas outside the calamity areas can help too. ABS-CBNmobile will make available another 100,000 SIM cards to sell in Metro Manila and other areas not affected by the typhoon to enable the sharing of load with the survivors.

Just buy ABS-CBNmobile SIM cards found in sari-sari stores and tiangges and share load by texting Share<space><amount> and send to 2131. Any of the following load amounts can be shared: P10, P20, P50, P100.

All load shared will be collected and distributed to the Yolanda survivors. To find out how much load has been shared, ABS-CBNmobile SIM card subscribers can text Share<space>Status to 2131. All transactions to 2131 are free.

Given the limited telecom signal and access to television currently being experienced in Yolanda-ravaged areas, ABS-CBNmobile and SkyCable have also partnered to put up TV viewing stations and calling centers, starting with Tacloban and to be rolled out in other key calamity areas. The viewing and calling centers will be available until power and communication lines in affected areas have normalized.

To find out the locations where ABS-CBNmobile SIMs are now available, just call 7878 through your ABS-CBNmobile SIM card or 266-7878 from your landline.
