In a press statement ABS-CBN Corporate Communications head Bong Osorio comments of the issue of Sky Cable and TV5's News and Sports Channel Aksyon TV. Sky Cable reasoned that as much as it would want to accommodate Aksyon TV, its capacity at the moment is already full. He further explained that the company is already in a study to increase its channel capacity. Below is the complete statement:
"SkyCable’s capacity at the moment is full, hence we are not able to comply with the Aksyon TV accomodation. SkyCable is studying how to increase its channel capacity which may take some time due to dependencies on the technical end. SkyCable is looking at workable solutions to address the concerns of Aksyon TV".
Manny Pangilinan's Media Quest which owns TV-5 and Aksyon TV have not yet commented on this issue.
