Star Cinema films set to air on GMA Network starting April
ABS-CBN’s Star Cinema films are about to be seen by Kapuso audiences soon as they will be aired on GMA Network starting April.
The partnership between the two rival networks was revealed via a trailer on GMA Network’s Facebook page yesterday, April 5.
Among the films that will air on GMA 7 are “Hello, Love, Goodbye” with Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards, “My Ex and Whys” starring Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil and “It Takes a Man and a Woman” featuring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo.
“Ang dating imposible, ngayon ay mangyayari na! Simula ngayong Abril, mapapanood niyo na ang mga pelikulang hatid ng Star Cinema sa GMA, mga Kapuso!” GMA stated. (What was once impossible is now happening! Starting this April, you will be able to watch the Star Cinema movies on GMA, Kapuso!)
“Witness TV history in the making starting this April, only on GMA!” the network added.
A virtual meeting regarding the deal was held between GMA executives Gilberto Duavit Jr, Philip Yalung, Annette Gozon Valdes and Joey Abacan, and ABS-CBN executives Carlo Katigbak, Mark Lopez, Cory Vidanes and Ricardo Tan Jr., as seen on GMA’s Instagram page, also yesterday.
GMA called the deal “historic,” noting that it is charting “new grounds for Philippine entertainment.”
