The ratings war, which is your favourite Philippines TV channel?

1 post in this topic

Posted

As tried and seasoned expat veterans (or newcomers) in the land of balut, songs and smiles, which is your favourite Phils TV channel di ba ?

ABS-CBN or GMA ? Who do you back in the exciting ratings war ? :)

Here in Oman, my wife is definitely ABS-CBN. Mind you, that's the channel used by TFC (the Filipino Channel - Phils overseas tv). But she prefers it anyway over GMA.

Indeed why not, I just love trying to sleep at 2 in the morning while some loud variety show pumps out badly sung amateur karaoke for a prize of shampoo bottles. :yawn:

I should add that my wife likes to sleep with background noise, something to do with being brought up in Pasay, MM I guess. Me ? I'm a townie from Scotland who is more used to tranquil sounds at night, like my own snoring for instance !

    • Government reneges on promise of expat access to NHS

      The irony of it (if it can get any more ironic than paying a 50 percent surcharge for being British) is that I imagine most expats live much healthier lifestyles than the fat blobs and smokers that are responsible for dragging the NHS down.

      It seems the promise to allow expats access to NHS treatment has been swept away by austerity cuts. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/expat-health/11633938/Government-U-turn-on-NHS-access-for-expats.html
    • Old pictures and videos of Bangkok in the past

      An article on the 'classic' hotels of Bangkok, which at the time of writing still exist. I remember waking up in the Miami Hotel many years ago, a friend dragged me there for my own protection, I have no recollection of arriving. I know it was the Miami, they still have the old plug and socket switchboard, pictured here. . .
