TV5 to start airing 4 ABS-CBN primetime programs
Four ABS-CBN primetime programs will begin airing on TV5 soon as the two networks, along with Cignal, continue to collaborate.
TV5 will start airing “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” “Ang sa Iyo Ay Akin,” “Walang Hanggang Paalam” and “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Connect” on Monday, March 8, ABS-CBN said in a release yesterday, March 5.
“We welcome the inclusion of ABS-CBN entertainment shows in our roster of programs. We believe that this content deal will benefit Filipino viewers across the country because of TV5’s extensive coverage,” Cignal and TV5 president and CEO Robert Galang said.

The network denied reports that the Coco Martin-led show, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” will end next month, stressing that it would “continue to serve our loyal viewers with engaging and action-packed episodes.”
Two of these shows, however, will be ending quite soon. For one, “Ang sa Iyo Ay Akin,” which stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Iza Calzado, Maricel Soriano and Sam Milby, is on its last two weeks.
The Kapatid network will, meanwhile, air the final week of “PBB Connect,” which will have its “Big Night” next Sunday, March 14. The said ABS-CBN primetime programs will air on TV5 from Monday to Friday, 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Aside from the said primetime shows, TV5 has been simulcasting ABS-CBN programs “ASAP Natin ‘to” and “FPJ: Da King” since January.
The two networks have been working together as ABS-CBN has been off the air since May 5 last year, when the National Telecommunications Commission ordered the network shut after the Kapamilya network’s franchise expired. /ra
