ABS has won a new capacity contract with a leading broadcaster in the Philippines. It announced March 27, that TAP Digital Media Ventures Corporation (TAPDMV) has extended its satellite broadcast partnership with ABS by adding four further channels on ABS-2. The four SD channels will be on the MCPC media platform on the ABS-2 C-band East Hemi beam.

These channels are: Premier Sports 2, a channel specializing in golf and tennis. The second channel is Premier Football, a channel for fans of German soccer and UEFA competitions. The third channel is EdgeSport, an action sports channel. The final channel is Comic U, a channel dedicated to sci-fi, fantasy and supernatural content.

“ABS is proud to support TAPDMV’s growth in the Philippines and beyond. Our three year old partnership with TAPDMV has grown from initially downlinking sporting events to broadcasting 10 channels today in the Philippines using the superior coverage of the C-band East Hemi beam. We appreciate the trust that TAPDMV has placed in ABS and look forward to building our collaboration further to serve wider audiences with richer video solutions,” Vincent Lim, MD of Asia Sales, ABS, said in a statement.
