SKYCABLE subscribers in Davao City will now enjoy a better channel surfing and viewing experience.

In a press conference held at D'Leonor Hotel on Wednesday, SKYcable, the leader in digital cable TV, has introduced yet another service innovation called organized channel (OC) system -- a new genre-based digital channel line-up.

According Gidgette Faustino, SKYCable regional marketing head, the launching is part of a campaign dubbed "OC for you" -- an all-out mission to give its customers the ultimate in cable TV service by arranging its programs according to genre and by giving them channel assignments in increments of 100.


Faustino said Wednesday's launching in Davao City is the first of a series. Launching events will also be held in Cebu City and Metro Manila.

Family members can now enjoy a more seamless channel surfing because they can easily locate their favorite programs, she added.

Local programs are found anywhere from Channel 1 to 99. Moms and kids alike won't have a hard time finding child-friendly content as they are found from channels 101 to 199. Learning or educational channels are conveniently located in the 200 series, while men-oriented and Sports channels are found from channels 301 to 399. Meanwhile, movie addicts can satisfy their cinematic fix by surfing through channels 400 to 499.

To get the latest news, both local and foreign, one can check the channels between 501 and 599. Subscribers looking for general entertainment channels will surely enjoy programs on channels 601 to 699.

International and religious channels are found between 800-899 and 900-999, respectively.

For lifelike viewing, nothing beats watching various contents in high definition. Enjoy the most number of HD channels only from SKYcable, located in channel numbers 701-799. A subscriber must have an HD subscription and an HD box to be able to watch channels on HD.

The OC system, Faustino said, also help subscribers find out all the other channels being offered by SKYcable, which they may subscribe to via SKYcable Select, in case their current basic plan does not include them.

They are 70 High Definition (HD) channels to meet the growing demand for HD content.

Faustino assured that with the new innovation, no channel was dropped from the old line-up, neither there is price increase in the channel realignment.

Subscribe to any of SKYcable's basic plans -- SKYcable 280, 399, 499, Silver, and Gold then beef up your channel line-up through SKYcable Select and/or SKYcable HD.
