Friday, September 17, 2010
BACOLEÑOS will soon have an alternative cable television as the 'New Bacolod Cable TV, Inc.' will operate a digital cable TV in the city this October 2010.
The group led by Dodong Lim Chua, James Sy, and Ted Javier, who have been with the cable televsion business for decades now, will open the doors of digital cable television to Bacolod viewers.
Digital cable TV is a new way of providing more cable channels to cable subscribers and providing crisp and clear signal, said Chua.
"Our group will provide Bacolodnons with a wide range of digital cable TV channels. We can provide a package of P480 a month wherein the cable subscribers can enjoy watching a hundred digital channels," he added.
"In the 3-in-1 package, the cable subscribers can enjoy 100 digital cable channels at only P480 with unlimited and faster internet connections, digital driven at P500 per month, and a Voice over Internet Protocol where one can call their relatives and friends abroad for free," Chua explained.
The cable subscriber can also add another 14 premier channels on top of the 100 cable channels but it will be at P680 per month.
The areas to be served first are those in the Capitol ville area, Eroreco, Hervias, and La Salle. They planned to serve the whole of Bacolod City by next year.
The cabling works are now ongoing for the October operation.
“It’s a triple play cable,” Javier said.
The group will have the blessing of their office Friday at Terra Dolce at Hilado-13th Lacson Streets, Bacolod City. They will also have a presentation of their digital Cable TV at L’Fisher hotel Friday night.
