The Filipino Channel (TFC) is set to level up the viewing experience of Filipinos in Europe with the launch of three more channels: Lifestyle Network, Myx TV and CineMo on its IPTV (Internet Protocol television) platform this November.
Starting this week, kababayans in Europe will finally experience the excitement, thrill and fun of three channels which Filipinos in the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore (for Lifestyle Network) are already enjoying via mainstream avenues.
ABS-CBN Managing Director for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Kai Rodriguez proudly shares that the initiative to add more channels on the IPTV platform of TFC is rooted from the clamor of Filipinos in Europe for more lifestyle, youth, and male-skewed programs. “In these fast-changing times, we try our best to keep focused on our mission. In doing so, we try to understand the unique and evolving needs of our kababayans in the region and deliver content that will help them not only be informed but also help them go through their daily grind. With the addition of the three more channels to TFC in Europe, we are serving the community and their more specific needs: Lifestyle Network for the passionate Filipinas, Myx TV for the second generation or Filipino youth and Cinemo for the male audience,” Rodriguez says.
Lifestyle Network is a living and travel guide channel that understands the lifestyle needs of modern Filipinos around the globe. As multi-faceted as its audience, the channel brings a myriad of entertainment choices that inspire. It is the only guide and companion that helps enrich the lives of Filipino viewers and expand their universe.
The channel features original and acquired programs from the five lifestyle genres: Food, Travel, Self, Home, and Entertainment. From the most delicious cuisine in the world, travel tips, parenting, self-improvement tips, beauty, fashion, to home programs, Lifestyle Network is definitely the channel for the modern Kapamilya.
These programs include “Listed,” “Ten,” Curiosity Got the Chef,” Ultimate Countdown and “Interior Motives.” For the full list of programs of Lifestyle Network, visit www.lifestylenetwork.tv
Myx TV, on the other hand, is the fastest growing, cable TV and digital network featuring original and acquired programs and first-run music from the U.S. and Asia.
Its buzzworthy programming includes original award winning reality shows, movies, and music that have been featured on major American mainstream media outlets like the New York Times, CNN, People Magazine, and the Hollywood Reporter.
With programs such as “I’m Asian American and…,” “The Kitchen Musical: The Boston,” “The Doll Life,” “Bagged,” “Eat Your Words,” and “Movie So Good,” Myx TV is a true representation of the second generation audience. For the full list of programs of Myx TV, visit www.myxtv.com
Lastly, Cinemo is the movie channel catering to the Pinoy male audience offering a slew of classic Filipino action movies, sexy films and comedy. It presents a wide collection of films featuring Pinoy male movie icons such as Fernando Poe Jr. (“FPJ: Hari ng Aksyon”), Dolphy (“Dolphy: Hari ng Comedy”), and Robin Padilla (“Binoe’s Best”). Other blocks under Cinemo include “CineSilip,” “CineBakbakan” (more action titles), “CineKwela” (more comedy movies) “CBO: Cinema Box Office” (top-grossing films), “CineMaton” (featured action star of the month), and “CineSigaw” (horror movies).
TFC’s IPTV service and its video-on-demand (VOD) features enable Filipinos in Europe to pause the scenes they don’t want to miss, replay the shows that they have missed, and fast forward the shows to the scene that they want to see the most from these channels and the platform’s other premium channels: TFC, Cinema One Global, ANC, and DZMM Teleradyo.
