TAP Digital Media Ventures Corporation (TAPDMV) has extended its satellite broadcast partnership with ABS by adding four further channels on ABS-2.

The four SD Channels will be on the MCPC media platform on the ABS-2 C-band East Hemi beam offering the highest reliability for national TV networks and primary cable services. These channels are:

1. Premier Sports 2, home to PGA Tour & WTA Tour
2. Premier Football, for fans of Bundisliga and UEFA competitions
3. EdgeSport, a destination for Action Sports
4. Comic U, focused on Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Supernatural genres

“ABS is proud to support TAPDMV’s growth in the Philippines and beyond. Our 3 year old partnership with TAPDMV has grown from initially downlinking sporting events to broadcasting 10 channels today in the Philippines using the superior coverage of the C-band East Hemi beam,” said Vincent Lim, MD of Asia Sales. “We appreciate the trust that TAPDMV has placed in ABS and look forward to building our collaboration further to serve wider audiences with richer video solutions.”

“TapDMV is pleased that we can once again rely on ABS to service the satellite distribution requirements of our 4 additional channels to our cable affiliates. They continue to be a reliable partner in the expansion of our Pay Television endeavors in the Philippines,” said Gonzalo de Guia, CTO of TapDMV.
