ABS-CBN has had a rocky past with the Marcos family, with dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr. ordering the shutdown of the network and the takeover of its assets at the height of Martial Law.
ABS-CBN was denied a franchise renewal in 2020, sending thousands out of jobs and forcing the network to find alternatives to remain on free TV.
In the absence of a franchise, ABS-CBN has entered into partnerships to air some of its content on the airwaves of its rivals, such as TV5 and GMA Network.
It also has a blocktime arrangement with Zoe TV, the network owned by Jesus is Lord Church founder Bro. Eddie Villanueva.
