  • Page Views 1508
  • To make Fil-Canadians feel the Christmas spirit in the air and “on the air”, The Filipino Channel (TFC) of ABS-CBN Global recent­ly unveiled its Christmas station ID featuring Willie Revillame, one of the top believers of the channel and the host of the most watched noontime show, Wowowee. Willie is very apt for the station’s Christ­mas ID as Wowowee also hap­pens to be a must-see live show for balikbayans especially during the holiday season. Throughout the month and be­yond, TFC viewers will see images of Filipinos from different coun­tries longing to spend Paskong Pinoy with their loved ones in the Philippines. To respond to their yearning, the Integrated Creative Communications team of ABS­CBN Global headed by Elizabeth Siojo pulled together the directo­rial expertise of Randy Santiago and the natural candor of Willie to come up with a touching network ID to convey the message that “although our kababayans may be far away from home, they have a true Kapamilya in TFC who will be with them during the season, bringing warmth and joy and the sense of family when it matters most.”

    Completing the poignant chan­nel ID, several testimonials of top ABS-CBN talents expressing their candid thoughts and personal Pasko wishes to loyal viewers were also aired during its launch. Those who have not seen Sharon Cuneta and KC Concepcion, Edu and Luis Manzano, Aga Muhlach, Maricel Sorianno, John Lloyd Cruz, Kris Aquino and other Ka­pamilyas talk about Paskong Pi­noy can still catch their favorite celebrities on air until January.

    TFC has been entertaining and informing overseas Filipinos since 1994. For almost fifteen years, it has endeavored to reach out to its viewers all over the world in more ways than one. In Canada, TFC is made avail­able via the worldwide web and In­ternet Protocol Television (IPTV). Committed to serve more and more Filipinos in the country, ABS-CBN utilized the worldwide web to offer TFC shows and mov­ies online through TFCNow. An audio and video streaming inter-net subscription service, TFCNow allows one to ac­cess his or her fa­vorite shows with just one click of the mouse. Moving further, it took advan­tage of the latest technology to offer more chan­nels and unique features when it service known as TFCko. This IPTV service gives the viewer con­trol over what he wants to watch with its capacity to fast-forward, pause or rewind any program.

    According to ABS-CBN Cana­da Country Manager, Marco Amo­ranto, “We consciously look after the needs of our customers. With TFCko and TFCNow, we go be­yond traditional television to suit their lifestyle. This is our gift to the people that we serve, not just for Christmas but for many years to come.”

    Christmas in the Philippines can be described as incompa­rable not only because of the endless festivities and sumptuous food but more because of the fond memories shared with fam­ily and friends that a person who has chosen to live abroad hardly ever gets the chance to relive. With TFC creating an imagined community, Filipinos worldwide are able to celebrate happy oc­casions together no matter how miles apart they are.
