ABS-CBN Global launches TFCko in Japan

At work when your favorite programs at ABS-CBN’s TFC are aired and too busy to be bothered with pre-set recording? Can’t get enough of the sizzling foursome Sam Milby, John Lloyd, Bea Alonzo and Anne Curtis in Maging Sino Ka Man? Or can’t wait for the latest update on the most controversial political issues in Manila?

With ABS-CBN IPTV or TFCko, ABS-CBN Global’s revolutionary multi-channel and on-demand programming delivered via broadband (ADSL or fiber), current ABS-CBN teleseryes and dramas dating back to the very first episode are all just waiting to be played.

This feature is part of a bundle that combines the programming of the TFC Channel shows, Cinema One Movies and ANC with the concept of “video on demand.”

Archived content of programs updated within two hours of airing in Manila is available anytime on TFCko. VOD functionality also allows subscribers to fast forward, rewind, and pause the crisp, clear MPEG 4 quality video.

Indeed, TFCko is a hassle-free way of getting satellite quality and weatherproof programming over the internet. “TFCko is ABS-CBN Global’s way of showing that when it comes to service, the overseas Filipino is always our big boss,” says ABS-CBN Global’s Project Manager Lyra Cedeno.

“Since Japan has a high level of internet connectivity with a band width exceeding the minimum required for this service, this is an ideal place to launch this latest technology-driven product of ABS-CBN,” managing director of ABS-CBN Japan Jeffrey H. Remigio explains.

Besides, with the fast-paced life of Filipinos in Japan, whose working hours are long and unpredictable, this product is expected to be a perfect fit for the market.

A concert dubbed The Dream Concert Tour 2007 slated on March 1 at the Shinjuku Bunka Center in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo will kickoff the marketing campaign. The event will be graced by Piolo Pascual, Sam Milby and the winners of the Pinoy Grand Academy Yeng Constantino, Irish Fullerton, Ronnie Liang, Chad Peralta, Jay-R Siaboc and Panky Trinidad. Priority for the free tickets will be for Philippines Today Online members.
