Controversies

Alleged bias with GMA

In mid-2003, GMA Network, the chief rival of SkyCable's sister company ABS-CBN, accused SkyCable of purposely tampering with the signal of GMA received by SkyCable's subscribers. At that time, SkyCable changed its channel assignments, moving GMA to channel 14. Subscribers still received poor reception of GMA, but officials at SkyCable denied these claims. [1] The National Telecommunications Commission ordered SkyCable to move GMA to an appropriate channel. [2] SkyCable complied with the order and moved GMA to Channel 12 on the system.[3] Global Media Arts (GMA) Network, Incorporated (PSE: GMA7 and GMAP), a Philippine multi-media conglomerate, is a television network in the Philippines. ... Categories: Corporation stubs | Philippines | Television networks ...


Even so, some subscribers have complained still about GMA's weak signal on 12, especially in timeslots where GMA's ratings are relatively high. In response, GMA provides a telephone line where subscribers can complain to GMA about the signal quality. The phone line has been promoted during newscasts, and is being used to collect evidence in preparation for a formal complaint against SkyCable. Similar issues also occurred with GMA's secondary network, Q. Q is a TV Network of GMA Network, Inc. ...


Removal of Solar Entertainment's Channels

Due to a dispute with SkyCable, channels owned by Solar Entertainment Corporation have been removed from SkyCable's lineups on January 1st, 2008. The channels have been "replaced" with several new channels: AXN Beyond, Fox Crime, Balls, MAXXX and Velvet TV. Solar Entertainment Corporation is an established media concern with consistence of cable television, film and broadcasting based in Makati City, Philippines. ...

Fox Crime is a television network, launched by the Fox Broadcasting Company, which airs across several countries of Europe, such as Italy, Portugal and Bulgaria. ...


Solar Entertainment responded to the move by starting to air programs on Associated Broadcasting Company (ABC), RJTV 29, and SBN 21, apart from Radio Philippines Network (RPN), which already airs Solar's programs. One insider commented that it was the best move, while another claimed that the troubles started when Manny Pacquiao, whose matches Solar Entertainment has exclusive rights to air and distribute, switched his loyalties from ABS-CBN to GMA. However, the said move, according to SkyCable's vice president for Programming Juno Chuidian, was just part of the thrust to improve programming and reduce redundant programs.[4] Solar Entertainment Corporation is an established media concern with consistence of cable television, film and broadcasting based in Makati City, Philippines. ...

Digibox

The Digibox is a product offered by SkyCable, whose major feature is filtering. The problem with it is that you only get one for free (one unit costs 1,000 Pesos with an additional charge 50 Pesos per month for each Digibox), and if a cutomer has multiple TV's and only one Digibox, then it is impossible to watch different channels on different TV sets without a Digibox for each TV. Some have even said that because of the Digibox, they only have cable on only one televison set.


Status of Competition

SkyCable competes with many cable TV providers in Metro Manila, some only operating in a certain locale in Metro Manila. But SkyCable's closest competitor in Metro Manila is Global Destiny Cable. Both have their own affiliates nationwide, and both provide their own cable internet services to subscribers. With the exodus of JackTV, Basketball TV and Solar Sports from SkyCable, Global Destiny is now a viable competitor. Image File history File links Unbalanced_scales. ... Global Destiny Cable is a direct-to-home cable TV subscription service. ... // The term cable Internet access or Cable Internet refers to the delivery of Internet service over this infrastructure. ...


Another major competitor in the Philippine pay TV industry was Dream Satellite TV, the country's first and only satellite TV provider. It operates nationwide since it transmits its signals to its subscribers via satellite. Until 2006 Dream offered a reasonable alternative to Sky cable. But because of mismanagement Dream now offers a very limited, and continuously shrinking number of channels, at prices far higher than than top packages of the cable providers. So it is now only a viable choice in areas too remote to have a cable provider. Pay television, or pay-TV, usually refers to subscription-based television services, usually provided by both analogue and digital cable and satellite, but also increasingly by digital terrestrial methods. ... Satellite television is television delivered by way of orbiting communications satellites located 37,000 km (22,300 miles) above the earths surface. ...
