It offers entertainment across screens and formats including films, series, TV shows, music, digital content or events.

The new platform will be called Pinoy Interactive Entertainment Channel or PIE, Kroma Entertainment head of Broadcast and Publishing Group Jil Go said. 

Go said ABS-CBN will be providing the content while Kroma will "complement" it with its interactive and tech product mix.

"It's the only multi-platform real-time interactive entertainment that brings audiences and brands alike to enjoy the unique tradigital proposition perfect for today's changing customer habit," Go said.

"They [ABS-CBN] provide the expertise in terms of content creation, while Kroma complements its interactive and tech product mix that's fully enabled by the 917Ventures portfolio companies," Go added.
