The TV5 Regional Network Group (TV5RNG) handles the operations and studio maintenance of all TV and all FM radio stations for Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. TV5 Regional last year turned over most of its engineering functions to the Network Engineering Group in order to focus on TV and radio show production and regional news and public affairs which are aired on site-based stations of TV5 and over the AksyonTV.

TV5’s movie production outfit, Cinema5, strengthened its position as a major player in the industry after just six years of operation. Despite the industry-wide slump in movie receipts, Star Cinema produced all films last year, eight of which were box office hits, most notably Rosario, Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginagawa?, Ang Babae Sa Buhay Ni Selya and I’ll See the Sun.

Ang Babae Sa Buhay Ni Selya received wide international attention, touring all festivals and receiving awards from the 48th Berlin International Film Festival, the Newport Beach International Film Festival, and the Turin Film Festival in Italy. Cinema5 also released all movies to commercial theaters in Guam this year. Movies produced by Cinema5 were also seen on international TV, such as Canadian TV (DISCTA, Quebec), and TV12 Singapore. Gabby Concepcion movie-starrer Father’s Story was seen on MAX-Star Movies-HBO in May 2011, while Ang Babae Sa Buhay Ni Selya was scheduled for cable viewing in June 2011.


After having been in operation for one years, TV5 Records hit gold for the rock band group, Jason and the Pussycats, four platinum records for the albums of Reev Robledo, Maverick Relova and Ariel Villasanta, Mr. Fu, Ritz Azul, Mark Allain, Jojo Alejar, Michael Renz Cortez, Edgar Allan Guzman, Rainier Castillo, Morrisette Amon and Tuesday Vargas and the original soundtracks of the movies BFGF, My Driver Sweet Lover and Babaeng Hampaslupa. Encouraged by the success of its records tied to Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum, TV5 Records and Viva Records has organized mixed a new record label, TV5-VIVA Soundtraxx for movie soundtrack production and TV show music tie-ins.


The TV5 Talent Management and Development Center recruits, manages, and trains TV5 talents and production staff similar to an institute of performing arts, and provides access to formal education through the network’s Distance Learning Center. This fulfills the Entertainment Group’s mission to mold a talent pool that is not beholden to the industry star system, one that is multifunctional and may be shared among TV5 and its various entertainment concerns. Among the new generation superstars developed from the Talent Center’s stable are Eula Caballero (still in Viva Talents), Ritz Azul, Arci Munoz, Alwyn Uytingco, Oyo Sotto, BJ Go and Edgar Allan Guzman. Talent Center “babies” with their mentors, TV5 Vice-President Bobby Barreiro and TV5 President Ray Espinosa.


AksyonTV's Filipino foreign language programming a partnership with Nation Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) draws high numbers via American TV series such as Glee, MasterChef, Hell’s Kitchen, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, America’s Next Top Model and How I Met Your Mother, regional sports, such as the PBA games, NBA games, animated shows such as Barney & Friends, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Sandra the Fairytale Detective, Trollz, Winx Club, Atomic Betty, Grossology, The Garfield Show and Lola & Virginia, Radyo5 programs such as Andar ng mga Balita, Balita alas-5, Todo Balita, Punto Asintado, Todong-Todo, Bigay na Bigay, Patol: Republika ni Arnelli, Healing Galing, Oplan Asenso and Alertado, the entertainment-produced variety shows Barangay Singkohan Game Showdown and News5 programs such as the primetime newscast Andar ng Mga Balita, with Martin Andanar, the public service program Duelo, with Dick Gordon, the public service talk show, Buhay OFW, with Marissa del Mar, the infotainment show Wasak, with Lourd De Veyra, the crime programs Pinoy U.S. Cops Ride Along, with Ben Tulfo, the weekend newscast Balitang 60, Bilang Tao, with Cheryl Cosim, the crime documentary Crime Klasik, with Martin Andanar, the satire newscast and political show The Weakend News, the news program CNN Konek, with Cheri Mercado, Word of the Lourd, with Lourd De Veyra, the sports talk show Sports Tambayan, with Chiqui Roa-Puno and Dennis Principe, the cooking show Cooking Na! and Cocktales, with Vic Agustin, Sari Yap and Cita Revilla, the documentary show Ako Mismo, with Efren Peñaflorida, education and public service show Mondo Manu, with Manu Sandejas, Presinto 5, talk show Tayuan Mo at Panindigan and tabloid news show Dokumentado, with Patrick Paez. The talk show Kalibre 41 was reformatted and relaunched as Dong Puno De Kalibre, with Dong Puno. A viewership study by Trends-MBL confirms that AksyonTV ranks 2nd in the market, second only to TV5 Channel 5, and 1st in the 12 - 24 age group segment. AksyonTV’s exclusive broadcast sponsorship of the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) games also serves to increase the channel’s ratings. As part of AksyonTV’s increased coverage strategy, one-kilowatt transmitters were installed in 10 cities: Dagupan, Bacolod, Laoag, Baguio, General Santos, Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga, Naga, Iloilo, and Batangas City, while 60-kilowatt transmitters were transferred to Legaspi City, Olongapo City, Botolan in Zambales, Lipa City, and Sta. Cruz, Laguna. Clockwise: Some of AksyonTV’s top raters, Glee, MasterChef, Hell’s Kitchen, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, America’s Next Top Model, How I Met Your Mother. Chi Bocobo and Jove Francisco of Balitang 60 deliver the day’s top headlines.


The PBA’s winning 2011-12 seasons captured the imagination of basketball fans nationwide. Aiming to bring basketball and provide entertainment to the countryside, and discover and hone untapped talents, the PBA continues to push the boundaries with its homeand- away live coverage of games separately played in the north and south, a first and a feat in Philippine basketball. The PBA banks on the regional format of competition, a winning formula that has enticed even the non-traditional target audience to get involved. TV5’s Sports5 commitment to sports development continues further through its launch of the Regional Boxing Knockout series last year. Counter clockwise: The Laguna Lakers against the Batangas Blades in a run-and gun game that characterizes the PBA; 2011 season expansion team San Juan Knights continue to be a crowd drawer even in the Pasig-Rizal Pirates’ turf; tremendous crowd support became a big push for the Pampanga Dragons to snatch the first PBA National Championship Title in the league’s inaugural season in 2011.

TV5 International and AksyonTV International’s owned and operated North American Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite service reaches 15,200 subscribers despite the failure of satellite Galaxy 4 in May 2011 and the resumption of services via satellite Telstar 5 and Mabuhay Channel in mid-June. Sales are strong in California and the U.S. East Coast. Through the North American satellite, dish owners now receive KTV5 as well as the AksyonTV, AKTV, Kids5 and the 5 Max Movie Channel. TV5 International and AksyonTV International’s other principal business is to provide long distance services through fully-owned subsidiary, Telecom5, with the assistance of Smart Communications, which owns 30% of TV5 International and AksyonTV International. Last year, the “Tawag Na Kapatid” and “Kapatid One” pre-paid call cards combined generated 1 million minutes of calls from the United States to the Philippines, while “Bayan Collect Sa America” generated a total traffic of 1 million minutes. Telecom5’s call mall in Milan continues to operate, with other call malls scheduled for opening in Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, and Athens in 2011. Telecom5 has a license-to operate application pending in Canada and the U.K., which will serve to meet the increasing telecommunication needs of Filipinos around the world.


Cinemagica and TV5 Broadway Centrum is TV5’s theater operations division. After the first theater opening in Davao, Cinemagica opened two new theater movie centers, one in Ozamiz City, with three cinemas, and another in Laguna, with four cinemas. The Ozamiz and Calamba theaters are equipped with superior projection equipment and Dolby Stereo sound systems that rival the best cinema systems in Metro Manila.


TV5 Interactive, in operation since 2010, was incorporated in January 2011 as the newest fully owned subsidiary of TV5. TV5 manages its Internet operations through the Interactive Media Group (IMG), reaching out especially to the Filipino community direct access to news and information about the Philippines. The website’s news, entertainment, and sports and community pages regularly service 100,000 members and thousands more international visitors. The website fulfills TV5’s mission to deliver “InterAksyon on Demand” and “InterAKTV on Demand” via the third medium, after radio and television. TV5’s website features interactive boards and live radio and television feeds to areas not reached by regular broadcast. TV5 Interactive’s “Popstar TV” and “Bagets” entertainment site represents the very first example of direct entertainment linkages between TV and the Internet. TV5 Interactive is being developed for electronic commerce and retail services, directory services, and other innovative means to reach out to Filipinos worldwide.


In 2010, TV5 is proud to say it continues to offer the highest rate of return on investment in the industry, and has achieved this by satisfying the needs of all its stakeholders, shareholders, viewers, and advertisers alike. Beyond the business side, TV5 continues to make public service an integral part of its operations. TV5’s wide network of resources has been instrumental in advancing matters of national concern. TV5 Kapatid Foundation’s educational TV and radio programs have contributed immensely towards improving the quality of education in the public school system. Kiddie Kapatid Kit has impacted phenomenally in the promotion of child welfare and protection. In 2011, the Foundation also launched “Bantay Kapatid”, the country’s first media-based environmental organization. For its efforts, TV5 has also garnered several accolades from local, regional, and international award-giving bodies: the Gawad CCP Awards, the PMPC Star Awards, the Anak TV Seal Awards, the KBP Golden Dove Awards, the Urian Awards, the Asian TV Awards, and the New York Festival Awards. Chairman Emeritus Eugenio Lopez Jr. was honored with the KBP Golden Dove Lifetime Achievement Award for his pioneering efforts and invaluable contribution to the television industry. For the sixth year in a row, TV5 was cited as one of Asia’s Top 200 companies in a regionwide survey conducted by the Far Eastern Economic Review.

As the millennium draws to a close and the Philippine economy is on its way to recovery, TV5 burns bright into the future. Touted to be a “TV5 Media Center”, construction of Project 9501 resumes in 2012. Over the past two years, total manpower has grown by almost three times because of expansion and the advent of subsidiaries. Station TV and radio programs have also more than doubled. Fifty percent of 9501 shall thus be allocated to the growing space needs of TV5’s group of companies while the other half is meant to be leased to other companies under the MVP Group. Project 9501 shall house modern technical facilities, mainly studios which shall be configured towards a fully digital infrastructure. It would soon be possible for all program sources to be accessed, processed and stored in the digital domain — moving towards better efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
