TV5 TO END ITS BLOCK TIME AGREEMENT WITH IBC-13!


MANILA - The operator of TV5 will no longer extend its block time agreement with state-run IBC 13.

At the sidelines of the turnover ceremony of the Road Safety Research of the University of the Philippines-National Center for Transportation Studies, MediaQuest Holdings Inc chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan said the company would let the agreement lapse in May, adding that the deal was expensive.

"Hindi na siguro. Hanggang Mayo lang yun. Masyadong mahal. Lugi kami dun," Pangilinan, who also chairs TV5, told reporters.


Pangilinan stressed to InterAksyon.com that MediaQuest is committed to continue its airing and coverage of programs and leagues to which it remains a partner, including the Philippine Basketball Association, and is in fact  considering airing the finals of the current season of the PBA live on TV5.

But Pangilinan noted that MediaQuest Is paying P150 million a year for the right to air over Channel 13.

In 2011, MediaQuest, which holds the media assets of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co (PLDT), entered a one-year block time agreement with Interisland Broadcasting Corp for the 5-11 p.m. timeslot seven days a week for sports shows. After a year, MediaQuest renewed the block time agreement only until May.

Because of this, "we will have to make adjustments in terms of the coverage of PBA, NCAA and other sports events," Pangilinan said, referring to the Philippine Basketball Association and National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Asked if the PLDT group is interested in acquiring IBC 13 once the government privatizes the network, Pangilinan said, "We will look at it, but I'm not sure."

The Aquino administration plans to privatize two of its TV networks, which apart from IBC 13 also includes RPN-9, to raise more revenues. The Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) earlier said it will sell the assets and franchise of IBC for P3.7 billion.

In 2009, MediaQuest bought TV5 from the Cojuangco family for P4 billion, and acquired MPB Primedia of Malaysia, a TV5 major block-timer, for $16 million.

May magagawa na ang TV5 sa walang habas ng pag-eeere ng mga Hollywood movies... Pagkatapos ng mga locally-produced primetime dramas ng TV5 ay eere na ang PBA/NCAA for sure...

ang gma patuloy na pinapangalandakan na no1 sila kahit pinagtatawanan, kayo kayo lang nman mga gma fantards na bulag ang nagpapaloko sa mga ksinungalingang press at praise releases ninyo.

ang tunay na no1, nakikita, nararamdaman, may mga patunay tulad ng hit movies, blockbuster records, super sikat na mga artistang napakaraming endorsements, consistent high ratings na pinaniniwalaan at dinudumog ng advertisers, maraming ad loads kahit mas mataas ang ad rates, etc. etc.

hindi katulad ng bulok mong gma na puro press at praise release lang ang alam kahit pinagtatawanan, di pinapaniwalaan ng mga advertizers, walang blockbuster na movies, mga starlets na kailangan pa ang name tag para makilala, nanlilimos ng ads, takot sa kumpetisyong paparating tulad ng commercialization ng ptv4, unang nagrereklamo sa comelec ruling na limitahan ang allowable tv ad minutes para sa mga candidates kas alam nilang di sila papasukin etc etc.. pathetic

Tv5 was so aggressive, management was informed that upon taking pba they would just break even, mvp did not listen, too much risk! It was planned but poorly executed.

During our media convention (2011), isa si Mike Enriquez sa maraming speakers from different networks, sinabi n'ya samin na #1 TALAGA ANG ABS-CBN kapag nationwide coverage, pero sila ang #1 sa METRO MANILA (so usapang nationwide #1 pa rin ang ABS).. And during ng seminar namin kay Ms. Grace Poe (MTRCB Chair), bagaman hindi nya diretsong sinagot kung sino ang may mas MAKABULUHANG AT MAGANDANG PROGRAMS, ABS-CBN pa rin. (tinanong kc sya ng student sino ang mas magandang programa sa dalawang network, then tinanong nya mga student, sino may mas kapupulutang aral at mas maganda story abs or gma, out of hundreds of Communication students, 4 lang ang nagtaas na mas maganda sa GMA, then ngumiti siya at sinabing see, kayo na din ang sumagot/ ayan na ang sagot something like that), pero in fairness naman, mas magagaling documentary films sa GMA. Pero may mga ilang reporters dun diumano ang bayaran :)

On the other hand ang nakikita ko na magaling ang concept sa pagbabalita at paggawa ng programs ay TV5 at UNTV 37, fresh ang ideas at maraming public service.
