    Cheers,

    this is a good suggestion by johnpal...I think the first thing we will need is sponsors and advertisement to get things going. there is no such thing as "FREE" to Air.

    Default KIBC FTA for OFW's

    There used to be a FTA channel for OFW's about 8 years ago.
    It was on As2 called "KIBC",it was uplinked in Olongapo.
    Until it didn't have funds to keep it going.

    This would require a lot of capital to start with.My son who studied accounting had ABS-CBN and GMA as their senior project and he told me that this 2 broadcasting giants are not really making money ffrom their overseas ventures.How much more for start-up that is being planned?
    Anyway I have been asking this question on numerous OFW fora for a long time-"Why does poor countries like Bangladesh and Myanmar(Burma) have their own free to air satellite stations and Philippines does not have one?" Are we really that poor?Or just the Filipino trait that if it does not make money forget it?

    you will need some congressmen to lobby for it in congress first, only then it will move once the motion has been approved for the benefit of OFW's. as usual, do you think GMA and ABS don't have their own moneyed lobbyists?

    I happen to meet one of the Bagong Bayani awardees before and she(yes it was a she!) had a vision for an OFW hospital. I wonder what happened to it?

    m8s,

    a lease of a single satellite transponder according to my source cost about 4million euros... it's going to be hard guys to justify it ! one needs a thorough project study regarding financing such endeavor!

    Granting you win billions on the Lotto you will have a hard time getting all the permits and licences approved. You will go thru DOTC,NTC,Congress, Munisipyo for the building,etc. Then by the time it is approved your capital will be heavilly depleted that you are forced to get loans just to start the business.Eventually you will be in heavy debt that you are forced to close the station!

    You guys ever heard of hacking the satellite itself, I've heard that you can uplink your signal without the satellite owner knowing that you are using his satellite to broadcast your program.

    you want billioins? take the OWWA payment and all medicare we pay as OFW's without getting any benefits for it. any transactions you do at the consulate office or embassy, you still have to pay. how many millions of OFW at current time, multiply that by 3,000 pesos average payment for non-existing services, and there you will have your billions. (there are 8million OFW's estimated for this year).
