MANILA - ABS-CBN's ‘The Filipino Channel’ (TFC)  is bringing the latest news and the best in entertainment to Filipinos in Japan on mobile.

“We are launching our latest offering on the 15th anniversary of TFC as a testament of our commitment to bring the best of the Philippines to more and more Filipinos,” said ABS-CBN Japan Managing Director Enrique Olives.  

TFC subscribers on mobile will now have the chance to be updated with ABS-CBN’s latest news and entertainment scoops, variety shows, drama series, movies and sports events on the palm of their hands through compatible mobile phones within the country.

“Our aim is to make TFC available on as many platforms as possible, allowing Filipinos to experience their favorite programs in the way that is most enjoyable for them,” said Olives.

With a monthly subscription fee of only ¥1,050, TFC on mobile subscribers will also have access to real tones of the most popular songs in the Philippines.

The TFC on mobile service was made possible by the partnership of ABS-CBN Japan with communication service provider ISAO Corporation and Entak Incorporated.

With the combined capabilities of the three companies, TFC on mobile assures its customers of high-quality video and audio streaming on their cellular phones.  

This new technology is also equipped with a mechanism that prevents production of unlawful copies.

Parent company ABS-CBN Corporation is well-known for pioneering efforts in television.  

With the partnership that ABS-CBN Japan forged with ISAO and Entak, ABS-CBN has again introduced another first in Philippine broadcasting history.
