ABS-CBN sinagot ang ‘alias cease and desist order’ mula sa NTC
NATANGGAP na ng ABS-CBN ang alias cease and desist order (CDO) mula sa National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) na ipinapatigil ang digital TV transmission ng ABS-CBN sa Metro Manila gamit ang channel 43.
Hindi man nakasaad ang channel 43 sa CDO ng NTC noong Mayo 5, 2020, at sa pagkakaintindi ng ABS-CBN ay hindi sakop ng CDO ang channel 43, hihinto na ang digital TV transmission sa Metro Manila sa channel 43 ngayong gabi (Hunyo 30), bilang pagsunod sa alias CDO.
Ibig sabihin, hindi mapapanood ng mga may TVPlus set-top boxes sa Metro Manila ang Teleradyo, Jeepney TV, Yey!, Asianovela Channel, CineMo, at KBO.
May nakabinbing petisyon ang ABS-CBN sa Korte Suprema na kinukuwestiyon ang CDO ng NTC.
Umaasa ang ABS-CBN na mareresolba ito sa panig ng network para makapagpatuloy na ito sa pag-broadcast sa parehong analog at digital platforms at maglingkod sa mga Pilipino.

Narito naman ang official statement ng ABS-CBN sa hinggil sa operasyon ng SKYDirect.
“SKYdirect’s 1.5 million subscribers nationwide, including those in remote areas that do not receive television signals, will be deprived of access to the channels we carry that bring them news, information, education and entertainment starting tonight June 30, 2020, as Sky Cable Corporation complies with the cease and desist order (CDO) issued by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) stopping the company from operating its direct broadcast satellite service immediately.
“In the spirit of fairness, we continue to appeal to the NTC to extend the same privilege given in the past to other companies whose franchises have expired but are currently pending in Congress to continue its operations until a resolution is passed.
“We assure our subscribers that we will exhaust all legal remedies to resume our services.
“We commit to attend to the concerns of our valued subscribers and partners arising from this decision. We will refund all unconsumed prepaid loads and advance postpaid payments. We appeal to our SKYdirect subscribers and partners for understanding and patience as we undergo this process.
“Our valued subscribers of SKYcable and SKY broadband, however, will continue to enjoy uninterrupted services as they are unaffected by the franchise expiration.”
