    Default GMA 7 the 1st Phil TV to Beam Satellite in Asia & Mid Ea


    Hi,

    Dont you know that we are watching GMA 7 via Palapa Satellite here in Middle East since 1992. Satellite receiver and dishes are so expensive at that time and it was on analog with 4 meters dish.

    We enjoyed live Eat Bulaga as early as 7 AM Saudi Arabia time and right after work we can get also the latest 11PM news from the Philippines.

    It was free for so long till 1998 until they shifted to Agila 2 and we lost our free viewing of live Philippine programs. Then TFC entered in the middle east via Arabsat included in the ART Package.

    So TFC claim to be the 1st and only is not true. Actually they are the 3rd just after KIBC ( Kababayan International Broadcasting Corporation ) which beam signal via Asiasat 2 and program originates from Subic and all the programs are purely for OFW.

    For your info.

    Cheers,

    Johnpal

    My friend...I agree with you. That's why TFC is the first filipino channel that is getting money from filipino outside the philippines..

    Default GMA-7 still the first

    johnpal,

    it is good to know. that is why i remained kapuso even my family in the phils. they only watch GMA-7.

    but, the program in Orbit package is not good all recorded, old and delayed programs.

    i just hope the real GMA-7 will broadcast soon.

    thanks for the info.

    yeps, i think so. whenever im home back in PI, i only watch GMA7, not ABS-CBN, and they have stronger signals in the provinces too. Besides, if you notice, all the gimmicks in ABS is a modified version of the shows in GMA7.
