ABS-CBN’s popular teleseryes may not be on TV after the network halted operations, but they are available online.

The ABS-CBN live channel can no longer be streamed on iWant, as per a statement today, May 6.


However, the media giant’s teleseryes, talk shows and variety shows are on the streaming service. It also has original series, movies, documentaries and travel, lifestyle and kids’ shows.

The ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) remains on-air since it is a cable channel and is not covered by the cease-and-desist order from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC). It can also be streamed on iWant for free.

NTC slapped the order after the network’s 25-year franchise expired on May 4. Bills seeking the renewal of franchise of ABS-CBN remain pending before the House committee on legislative franchises.  /ra
