    Default DREAM TV

    Hi,

    We must be happy if Dream will be with PLDT first of all the partner they got is ECHOSTAR which runs Dishnetwork in USA. Correct me if I am wrong this company is interested to make an alliance with PLDT just to eliminate old equipment they have in US old NAGRA 1 and the later NAGRA 2 so..........

    Maybe on their mind people in ASIA lack knowledge so just dump old technology in Philippines. Also PLDT need to convinced Philippine Congress that they are 100% Filipino owned because MEDIA business according to Philippine Constitution is only limited to FILIPINOS.

    Still a big battle so your timetable still far from reality. Actually PLDT is already already running the DTH in Agila 2 if you notice the frequency 12541V, 14000 it belongs to them together with GV Broadcasting they maintain that slot for so long just to be sure Philippine Congress will not remove that franchise for not operating.

    Cheers,

    Johnpal

    migrating to another system is not that easy (unless they are willing to spend their millions simply to avoid being "hacked"). even DN in US is not safe from being compromised. so if PLDT opts to buy out the DreamTV franchise, then there will be simply a name change for the time being (now, THAT is much easier to accomplish).

    so take a deep breathe guys, your dreams will continue to be pleasurable, if not wet, for some time.

    It's all speculations, deal with it when it comes!

    We know it's a different ballgame when Dream will be acquired by PLDT and echostar. They lots of money to spend.

    At the moment enjoy it while it last!

    I am 100% sure, they will change the encryption . If they think that asians are poor in Hacking knowledge, I ask them to visit this forum. Then they will understand their mis-calculation.

    PLDT buying Dream Satellite; price set at $22M




    From http://money.inq7.net/topstories/vie...9&dd=21&file=1


    PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is buying Philippine Multi-Media System Inc., operator of Dream Satellite TV, from Antonio Cojuangco for $22 million, or about P1.23 billion, Inquirer sources said.

    The sources said Cojuangco, former controlling shareholder and president of PLDT, had accepted the PLDT offer because he needs the money to support his other investments, especially television company Associated Broadcasting Corp., which operates Channel 5.

    "Both parties have agreed on the valuation," a source said. "It is just a matter of preparing the documents and affixing their signatures."

    Another source said Cojuangco's group had agreed to a much lower price than it had originally asked, after PLDT agreed to absorb the debts of Philippine Multi-Media System.

    Cojuangco's asking price was $56 million, said an informed source. PLDT offered $25 million, and later $22 million after factoring in the debts, mainly of Dream Satellite, that would be absorbed.

    PLDT president Napoleon Nazareno said they were "still in the final stages of negotiations." The deal was not done yet, he said.

    Philippine Multi-Media System holds a franchise to operate a direct-to-home programming service.

    Acquisition of Dream Satellite would enable a joint venture between PLDT and America's largest direct-TV provider, Echostar Communications Inc., to finally take off.

    PLDT and Echostar are planning to invest $85 million in pay TV operations in the Philippines through satellite receivers, not the traditional cable system that is prone to piracy and signal theft.

    PLDT and Echostar have an existing venture under ePLDT. Parlance Systems Inc., a subsidiary of ePLDT, has been providing inbound and outbound call center services to subscribers of Echostar in the US since 2002.

    Discussions on their investment in a direct broadcast satellite business started as early as 2000 but getting a franchise was one of the issues that impeded the venture.

    Cesar Reyes, chairman and chief executive officer of the Philippine Multi-Media System and former PLDT official, said in late August that valuation was stalling the negotiations between PLDT and Philippine Multi-Media System.

    The Inquirer tried to reach him Tuesday for comment on the reported developments, but Reyes was not answering his mobile phone.

    Philippine Multi-Media System uses PLDT's Mabuhay Satellite to broadcast content to more than 100,000 subscribers nationwide.

    Reyes said Dream Satellite was now the second largest pay TV company in the country. The largest is Beyond Cable Holdings Inc.

    PLDT owns one-third of Beyond Cable, a joint venture with the Lopez group. It has proposed swapping its Beyond Cable interests for the controlling stake in the Lopez group's phone company Bayan Telecommunications Philippines Inc., or BayanTel.

    A source said PLDT chairman Manuel Pangilinan's plan "is to bring down the rate of Dream by offering more programs. He can do that with Echostar, which has more than 200 channels."

    Dream Satellite is considered more expensive than the traditional cable providers.

    Sources said that if talks with Dream failed, PLDT would open negotiations with other direct-to-home providers such as Pacific Cable Inc. and GV Broadcasting.

    Under the plan, the joint venture between PLDT and Echostar will provide clients with home antennas. It will also supply more than 2,000 video and audio channels.
    If Evolution works, why so many idiots?
