In an interview with reporters on Wednesday, April 8, Solar Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mitos Borromeo explained the decision to rename the channel.

“If you know our entertainment channels, each channel has a different personality. because it is appealing to a different audience. For example, with ETC, we are targeting young fashionable audience.

“Jack City was supposed to target sophisticated males and females. However, that positioning wasn’t coming across clearly, mainly because the name Jack CITY was to close to Jack TV. 

“Because we are still trying to fulfill our plan of having each channel target  a different audience, we decided to reposition Jack CITY and relaunch it by calling it CT with the tagline Get Citified to make it more clear to the target  audience is, and in fact we called it sophisticated urbanites as our target audience,” she said.



CT is on Cignal channel 22, Sky Cable channel 138, Destiny Cable channel 138, and Cable Link channel 40. – Rappler.com
