- ‘Sahaya’ first announced that they’re pitching the series to be streamed on Netflix
- ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ can now be streamed on Netflix
The rising series ‘Sahaya,’ that features a storyline of a Badjao woman, Sahaya, and their tribe fighting against the wrath of ignorance, cultural racism, and deprivation of education to the Badjao people, claimed that they will be the first Philippine series that will be aired on Netflix.
But news had broken and confirmed that ABS-CBN’s ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ is now airing on Netflix. The longest running primetime show had also made its way to reach out to its international audience with its international title, ‘Brothers.’
‘Sahaya’ had announced its possibility on gracing Netflix last February, the team had shared that the equipment that were used on the show was really great for a Netflix milestone.
“I’m just happy to share with you na nag-taping na kami and I’ve seen the materials. Ang galing ni Direk Zig Dulay, ang ganda ng materials niya, ang ganda ng camera movements niya, ng shots. And this is also the first time that a GMA drama will use the C700 cameras, so ito yung akma na puwedeng pang-Netflix.”
But just recently, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano had made its announcement via Twitter that FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano can already be watched on Netflix.
‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ is titled ‘Brothers’ on Netflix. On the Twitter account of Dreamscape’s Eric John Salut, he tweeted a photo with the caption,
“Nasa @netflix na po ang Pambansang Teleserye ANG PROBINSYANO with an international title BROTHERS! Congrats, Coco Martin, @ABSCBN and @DreamscapePH”

Which really garnered positive comments from awaiting viewers.
lmfao everyone is bashing & laughing at 'Ang Probinsyano' being on netflix but that show alone showcases more relevance and exposes political and social issues than that of other shows that y'all watch. you want relevance in media yet you dismiss shows that already have. bye ph

Conclusively, ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ has really graced the international viewers with its action packed drama, but we still don’t know if maybe ‘Sahaya’ just awaits the perfect moment to stream on Netflix.
