Senator Raffy Tulfo is thrilled for viewers after ABS-CBN, TV5 sealed a landmark deal.
Senator and broadcaster Tulfo expressed his excitement over the partnership of two media giants, ABS-CBN and TV5 network.
In August 2022, the ABS-CBN and TV5 network announced their landmark deal that will allow the Kapamilya network to acquire shares in TV5.
In an interview with Headstart on August 17, Senator Tulfo said that the partnership of the two networks will benefit the viewers.
“The best of two worlds joining together at ang end result, dream team. At sino makikinabang dito? The viewing public.
“Makikinabang yung viewing public kasi dalawang higante, nagsanib-puwersa.
“ABS-CBN, marami silang mga contents na maibibigay when it comes to entertainment, news, and public affairs, etc.
“The same with TV5, marami rin silang magagaling pagdating sa reports, mga shows, at maayos ang signal.
“At kung mag-joint forces ‘yan, ang makikinabang talaga ay ang viewing public, yung taong-bayan,” he added.
The senator then said that there is nothing wrong with the partnership and that he supports it.
“Sa ngayon, wala akong nakikita. So, again, I have to study that, I have to ask questions from the experts, tingnan kung meron bang violation.
“Kung merong violation, then it’s a different story, it’s a different ballgame.
“Pero kung wala tayong makikitang mali at okay lang yung merger ng ABS-CBN at TV5, so let it be.
“I, for one, will support that and I’m talking based on me being a former broadcaster na alam ko yung takbo at kalakaran sa media.”
The landmark deal comes after activities between the two networks have increased with more Kapamilya programs onboarded on TV5’s Kapatid Network.
