On its fifteenth year, GMA Pinoy TV continues to be relentless in reaching Kapuso viewers abroad and giving them the best of Filipino programming.
“This August, GMA Network celebrates 15 years of GMA Pinoy TV, our first international channel. It is our hope to continue bringing Filipinos abroad closer to home through our award-winning news and public affairs programs as well as our topnotch entertainment shows that are proudly Filipino. We, at GMA, remain steadfast in delivering Serbisyong Totoo to our Kapuso abroad especially during these challenging times,” said GMA Network Chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon.
The Kapuso Network’s flagship international channel was initially launched in Guam, Japan, and USA in 2005. It then extended its global presence by launching in the Middle East and Europe, respectively, via partner-carrier Orbit (now OSN) in 2008. In the same year, GMA also introduced its second international channel, GMA Life TV, and a third one, GMA News TV International in 2011.
Fifteen years later, GMA Pinoy TV, along with its two additional international channels, is now available in 104 countries across different territories.
GMA Pinoy TV also brought its biggest stars to bond with Filipinos around the world. Some of the sought-after Kapuso artists who added excitement to events abroad were the “Eat Bulaga dabarkads,” the phenomenal “AlDub,” the “Encantadia” cast, and Willie Revillame and the “Wowowin” gang.
