ABS-CBN expands content distribution in African, Latin American, and Asian territories
ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ leading media company, is set to bring 16 hit titles including Brothers, The Heiress, Destined Hearts, The General’s Daughter, and more to viewers across three continents, as it continues to bring relatable stories to international territories including Africa, Asia, and Latin America this year and in 2021.
Fourteen ABS-CBN programs will be shown in Africa for the first time starting this year. These include the Philippines’ most-watched program since 2015, Brothers, which revolves around the story of a police officer who goes against high-profile criminals to find the truth behind the death of his brother; the phenomenal Philippine drama The Heiress, wherein two women’s rivalry brings ruin and danger to each other’s lives; and the top-rating action-drama The General’s Daughter, which tells the tale of a woman who was trained as a spy to exact revenge against his father.
The other Philippine hit series are La Luna Sangre, a fantasy-drama series about two lovers from rival ancestry, the psycho-thriller Mea Culpa, action-dramas A Soldier’s Heart and Fists of Fate, family dramas Love Thy Woman and Los Bastardos, primetime gothic series The Killer Bride and thriller A Mother’s Guilt, romance dramas Secrets of El Paraiso and Two Hearts, and the romantic comedy Since I Found You.
In Latin America, the classic drama Destined Hearts will premiere in Ecuador this August. It is a story about two childhood friends whose love for each other uncovers painful secrets from the past and ignites a conflict between their families. Destined Hearts is the third ABS-CBN show to air in Ecuador, following Bridges of Love and The Promise.
In Asia, Love Thy Woman will have an Indonesian remake. Currently, three ABS-CBN shows are airing in Myanmar, namely Los Bastardos, Fists of Fate, and Two Hearts.
The Pacific Islands will also be enjoying Since I Found You, and Two Hearts as they air this August and September, respectively.
Meanwhile, ABS-CBN’s hit movie Dear Other Self, a romantic fantasy about a woman who finds herself living two lives in parallel realities, will be shown in Brunei this year. This follows the successful showing of My Perfect You and Barcelona in Vietnam recently.
ABS-CBN has produced the highest-rating shows in the Philippines and has been recognised as a reliable foreign content provider in the global market. Its films and shows are available across other territories through ABS-CBN International Distribution.
ABS-CBN recently launched Kapamilya Channel on cable and satellite TV across the Philippines and Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube and Facebook to broadcast and stream its programs following the denial of its legislative franchise for its free TV and radio operations last month. Its shows and films are also available on iWant and TFC streaming platforms.
The company continues to syndicate its content through various streaming services and operate other businesses that do not require a legislative franchise, such as international licensing and distribution, digital, and cable TV.
ABS-CBN has been a premier source of high-quality Filipino programming in over 50 territories all over the world and has sold over 50,000 hours of content worldwide.
Living up to this recognition, ABS-CBN International Distribution commits to add to its first line-up of high-caliber programs and movies with cast and storylines that appeal to various cultures.
