A2Z Channel 11 now available on digital TV boxes

A2Z Channel 11 is now available on digital television boxes in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

“We are pleased to share the news that A2Z is now on digital TV after a successful test broadcast conducted early this month. Viewers with digital TV boxes can now watch our programs in superior picture and audio quality, for their enhanced enjoyment,” Zoe Broadcasting Network president and chief executive officer Sherwin Tugna said in a press release on Monday, November 23.

Viewers in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, and Pampanga can access the channel by conducting an auto-scan on their devices, such as ABS-CBN TV Plus and GMA Affordabox, among others.

A2Z, a partnership between ABS-CBN and Zoe, was launched in October. It has since become the new home of many Kapamilya entertainment shows. However, there are no news programs on A2Z. (READ: The big comeback: How ABS-CBN pulled off its return to free TV)

Zoe was founded by Brother Eddie Villanueva, one of the Philippines’ most popular Evangelical leaders and currently Citizens’ Battle Against Corruption (CIBAC) party representative.

ABS-CBN was forced to go off-air early May due to a National Telecommunications Commission order following the expiration of its franchise. Lawmakers rejected its bid for a fresh franchise in July over alleged "numerous violations" – a decision widely condemned as politically motivated after the network caught the ire of President Rodrigo Duterte. 

Following its shutdown, ABS-CBN shifted its focus to its digital and cable businesses. (READ: FAST FACTS: Other businesses of ABS-CBN) – Rappler.com
