Digital Broadcasting: The future of Philippine Television

  • @owenighty

    sasama na yan, basta lahat ng encrypted channels bawal as NTC's Order. kasi na announce na yan, meron na lang 6 months sila para alisin lahat yan. So by next year expect the expected, dami magagalit na tvplus owners nyan, siguro magagawa na lang ng ABS eh i public yung mga exclusive channels nila, they already sold millions of that.

    not to mention tvplus also have subscription based services, i think their kbo service has one, and 3 of their channels specially that asia novela channel and the western movie channel magiging paid service na rin yan next year. not to mention meron din silang isang unusued channel para sa pay per view service nila (laban ni pacquiao for example). So hindi sila nalalayo sa scheme ng easytv.
  • ^And that's the problem. Kung mag-iimplement sila ng subscription, dapat ALL boxes pwede mag-avail regardless of branding. Malaking issue kasi yan kung gusto mo manood ng isang channel lang na nasa kabilang box, bibili ka na naman ng STB. Sana magkaroon ng maayos na directive ang DICT or whatever agency na nakakasakop sa ISDB-T

    i agree to this to a certain point. dapat lahat ng available isdb-t boxes, pwede mag subscribe sa encrypted channels, kung subscription based or ppv sya.
  • Kaya yata sa bagong advertisements ng tvplus naka highlight na yung alert feature nito (dost pagasa, ndrrmc, mmda / traffic advisories) etc. Hindi na masyado binanggit yung "free channels" nila. Sana nga iopen na nila exclusive channels tutal kumita na naman sila sa 8M owners nito plus commercials pa.

    Hopefully, we'll have more channel options and newer kinds of tv boxes / multimedia units as well.

    @polka,

    Do you have the link of the NTC order for the eventual removal of channel encryptions? So in the future yung paid channels iallow pa din ng NTC as long as its open for subscriptions for all tv boxes?

  • This potential problem boils down on who should have spearheaded the technology, and that is the government.

    Naging komplikado ang lahat dahil nag-umpisa ang ABS-CBN sa implementation with encrypted programming at proprietary receivers. To be fair with the network naman, kung hindi talaga sila mag-iintroduce ng new channels sa DTTV broadcasts nila, malamang sa malamang, lalangawin and TV Plus (even DTTV in general) kahit malinaw ang palabas kasi kung walang bago/exciting channels sa line-up. Panigurado mag-aantay ang mga tao sa government subsidized boxes kasi magiging mas mura o even maging libre ang mga FTA receivers. Networks know na mahal ang transition kaya sumugal si SOLAR. GMA on the other hand, piniling makiradam kahit most likely months ago palang ready na talaga sila i-roll-out ang sariling service, nag-aabang lang because of the massive policy shift and priorities of the national government kasi gusto rin nila maki-bandwagon sa new money making scheme through paid channel subscription basis.

    Hopefully sana maresolve ang potential legal challenges kasi mukhang doon na tayo papunta kung walang remedyo ang DICT/NTC sa lalong madaling panahon. Our state broadcaster has failed us dismally to catch-up with the commercial broadcasters in terms of coverage, because dis is da pilipins where projects are always delayed and overly complicated to implement (referring to NEC deal in 2017). Sila sana ang naglatag ng masterplan ng entire pre/post transition roadmap eh wala, no foresight at all. Antay nalang muna tayo maaring nagluluto na sila ng malupet na strategy at for once magkaroon na ng common module/system (look at Japan!) sa lahat ng gusto mag-encrypt, pera din yan, hehe.
  • Tama kayo sa issue eh. Bakit ako bibili ng maraming boxes para lang mapanood ang channels ng kabilang network, magmumukhang tindahan sa Raon ang mga bahay natin, lol. Dapat siguro may "common box policy" na rin tayo eh. Naaprubahan nga DICT ang common tower policy despite lobbying ng big 2 telcos tayo pa kaya na mas kailangan ang TV sa mga bahay. Ang bibilhin nalang natin eh yung mga CAS card ng mga networks, basta isang box lang sasalpakan ng card, presto! Lumang tugtugin na nga yan dito eh. hehehe

  • @Lool ang galing ng last 2 posts mo hehe.

    Very informative and tama mga points mo!
  • siguro isa ka sa mga may-ari nang ISDB-T Digital TV Box(malamang Wow yan o import mula sa BRAZIL kasi ang ISDB-T nila walang CAS, sa Japan lang meron kasi may dahilan) na walang EWBS+BML built-in pero yung USB port may Multimedia Player, i-record ang palabas sa ABS-CBN/GMA at i-Upload sa Youtube/Dailymotion/Vimeo/etc. nang Bonggang Bongga, ang nag-complain tungkol sa Encryption, AMININ!!!!
  • Hindi mo mai-play sa ibang media player ang video files na ni-record mo sa TVbox, proprietary ang file type/extension nun. Dun lang sa kanya mo mapapanood, kung saan box mo ni-record. Kahit na mai-upload mo pa sa internet hindi ma-play yun, hindi kilala ang file extension nun.

  • can be played using VLC media player, yan lang ang pinaka-puwede, kung ako sa iyo, maghahanap na lang ako nang codec pack na puwedeng i-download, limitado ang codec na mai-played sa Windows Media Player.
