GMA Regional TV (GMA RTV)—the regional arm of leading broadcast company GMA Network—marks another milestone as it recently reached 100,000 subscribers on online video platform YouTube.
Launched last February 26, 2016, GMA RTV’s YouTube channel is the only platform that made various GMA RTV programs and videos available to netizens anytime, anywhere. These original content include daily newscasts which previously aired on GMA RTV local channels such as GMA RTV Balitang Amianan, GMA RTV Balitang Bisdak, GMA RTV One Western Visayas, and GMA RTV One Mindanao. Netizens also get to watch GMA RTV’s festival coverages and specials, as well as “GMA RTV Presents”.
Some of the most watched videos on GMA Regional TV’s YouTube channel include One Mindanao’s news report on “Lalaking Nagtangkang Manaksak sa Sumita sa Kanya, Arestado” which has 1.9 million views to date; One Mindanao’s “Ambush Na-hulicam” which earned 1.3 million views; One Western Visayas’ “Nagdumong sa Aswang Nasaysay” and “Leader Sang NPA Patay sa Engkwentro” with 841.3k and 776k views, respectively; and One Mindanao’s “U.S. Philippine Peso Coin Nakita sa Malungon, Sarangani” with 753k views.
“We are proud to reach our 100k-subscriber mark on YouTube and we want to share this achievement with every Kapuso netizen who made this possible,” said GMA Regional TV Vice President and Head Oliver Amoroso. “Videos featured on GMA Regional TV’s YouTube channel mirror the story of every Filipino, in every corner of the Philippines. We are happy that through this platform we are able to bring such local stories to all our Kapuso all over the world. And as GMA Network celebrates its 70th anniversary, GMA RTV is committed to produce relevant content both on-air and online because local news and stories matter.”
GMA RTV has been bringing local news and information that matter to Filipino viewers nationwide with its local newscasts all over the country, and just recently, with the morning shows “GMA Regional TV Live!” in Central and Eastern Visayas and “At Home with GMA Regional TV” in Mindanao. At the same time, more viewers get to watch these local programs via “GMA Regional TV Strip” that airs weeknights on GMA News TV at 9:45 pm.
