ABS-CBN to launch digital TV. Before you dream of watching Wowowee or telenovelas on your HDTV TV set or PC, it looks like this will be SDTV (standard definition TV) over a digital signal.
- If this is “Cable TV ng Masa,” will ABS-CBN pay for the set-top boxes?
- Does this lock the TV into watching ABS-CBN exclusively? Now that is a Kapamilya executive’s dream scenario.
- Or, maybe the TV viewer can tune into other stations, but not the Kapuso station?
- How about DVB-H transmission like Smart myTV? Does this mean, if and when DVB-H handsets become affordable, ABS-CBN wants to transmit directly and bypass the mobile operator?
