    Orbit is just buying the program of GMA to capture the Pinoy audience in the middle east. Orbit package is quite expensive and when digital era came out, their sales drop tremendously. One way to survive is to add flavor to their package but sad thing the programming is old. During early viewing of Pinoy Plus you can even watch Toni Gonzaga in GMA while she is now in ABS. Wait for sometime and GMA will go on solo in the middle east according to source.

    last december, i chanced upon a GMA7 employee at the airport, and we talked about the satellite broadcasts of GMA7. he told me that they will start in the US and others, and pending results from that venture, they will soon broadcast in Mid-east. remember, this is what happened to TFC before, it was syndicated thru satellite/cable operators, not only here in middle-east (showtime) but also in american cable networks. now TFC is a full blown satellite operation, and so will GMA7, which is being syndicated by Orbit as of this time.

    i don't know if this has been posted here arlready but i found this somewhere on the net:

    Subject: GMA sa Middle East

    Kaibigang Jerry,

    Ako si Daniel K. Elma. Ako ang business development officer ng GMA International. Sorry at ngayon lang namin masasagot ang iyong sulat.
    Unang una, kami ay nagpapasalamat na nabigyan mo kami ng panahon upang sabihan kung ano ang nangyayari diyan. Mahalaga lahat ang sinabi mo. We will definitely take careful note of all that you have said. Siguradong dagdag ito sa aming kaalaman. Sana, masmarami ang katulad mo na tumutulong sa amin mapagbuti ang aming serbisyo.
    Nais naming ipaalam sa inyo na ang mga palabas ng GMA na nakikita niyo sa Orbit ay hindi ang international channel namin. Ito ay mga syndicated programs lamang. Ang channel na yan ay channel ng Orbit na may piling GMA programs lamang. Wala pa ang GMA International channel sa Middle East. We may not be there yet but you can expect us to be there within the year.
    Uulitin ko po, wala pa ang GMA International Channel sa Middle East.
    Ang mga nasabi niyo ay pinaalam na namin sa Orbit para malaman nila.
    Marami pong salamat sa inyong pagsulat.

    Daniel K. Elma
