TFC has such a strong
following in the East, that it is our responsibility to make our programming more
accommodating for our customers
Centennial, CO (PRWEB) July 01, 2011
To better serve their viewers along the eastern seaboard, ABS-CBN has created an East Coast feed for The Filipino Channel (TFC), the #1 Filipino network in the U.S. This new feed, TFC-E, will offer the same great programming as TFC, with a 3-hour time shift to make the service more accommodating for those living outside the Pacific time zone.
“We are very excited to make this new feed available to our East coast viewers,” said Jun Del Rosario, Director of Affiliate Sales for ABS-CBN International. “TFC has such a strong following in the East, that it is our responsibility to make our programming more accommodating for our customers.”
The TFC-E feed is now available for distribution and authorization through International Media Distribution (IMD). Once authorized, signals can be received via IMD’s satellite on Galaxy 17, Transponder 24.
For more information about the new TFC East Coast feed, affiliates should contact Kajsa Moe,
Director of Affiliate Sales & Marketing, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.imediadistribution.com. For authorization to swap signals from TFC to TFC-E, affiliates should contact email@example.com with their equipment address and request.
