Ultra bilyonaryo Manny Villar is outsourcing content for his new channel AllTV as it starts its initial broadcast on September 13.
Among the maiden shows to air on the Advanced Media Broadcasting System (AMBS) channel 2 will be News Night, an hour-long newscast with veteran journalist Pia Hontiveros of CNN Philippines.
It will be on simulcast from Monday to Friday at 6 p.m. CNN Philippines transformed the program from English to Filipino and extended its usual 30-minute run to an hour beginning September 5, in preparation for the streaming agreement with Villar’s network.
The deal was signed Wednesday, September 7.
AllTV will start airing between 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. on free TV.
