‘Di madamot! Willie Revillame thanks ABS-CBN for giving analog transmitter to Villar’s AllTV

Ultra bilyonaryo Manny Villar had the Lopezes to thank for for making the soft launch of AllTV possible last week.

Game show host Willie Revillame gave a shoutout to his former network for being a good sport despite losing its broadcast frequencies to the new channel.

“We’re so thankful, ipinagkaloob sa atin ng ABS-CBN yung antenna na ‘yan, yung transmitter. Kung wala po ‘yan, hindi niyo kami mapapanood sa analog,” the Wowowin host said.

“Hindi nila ipinagdamot, e. Sa totoo lang, in fairness, ang bait din nila para hindi ipagdamot. Puwede naman nilang hindi ibenta ‘yan pero ibinenta pa rin nila. Salamat ho,” the former ABS-CBN talent added.

The transmitter allows a network to mount nationwide broadcasts through free TV channel 2.

It is unclear, however, if Villar managed to buy off the broadcast towers and the land it sits on, which is housed within the Kapamilya compound along Mother Ignacia in Quezon City.

Revillame’s own Wil Tower, which is a condominium slash studio located a stone’s throw away from ABS-CBN, is now being used as AllTV’s temporary studio while Villar builds his own.
