MANILA -- ABS-CBN's Jeepney TV has reached a new digital milestone as it breached the 1-million mark in YouTube subscribers, who continue to watch and relive ABS-CBN’s timeless and well-loved programs on the video-sharing platform.
As of writing, its YouTube channel has also generated almost 273 million lifetime views, a feat that follows the success of ABS-CBN Entertainment, which became the most subscribed and most viewed YouTube channel in Southeast Asia with 32.9 million subscribers.
“We are grateful to all our ka-Jeepney who have not only supported us on air, but who also propelled the brand’s growth online.

Kapamilyas remain hooked on re-experiencing complete episodes of their favorite ABS-CBN teleseryes, sitcoms, and fantaseryes like “Lastikman,” “Agua Bendita,” “Marina,” “Kampanerang Kuba,” “Home Along Da Riles,” and more which are all uploaded on the Jeepney TV YouTube channel.
Meanwhile, proof of Jeepney TV’s expanded digital presence are its Facebook page, which currently has over 4.2 million followers, Instagram page with over 106,000 followers, and TikTok account with more than 543,000 followers.

Beginning this month, the channel also airs FYE channel original programs like “KumuStar Ka” and “Magandang Kabuhayan.”
