From "Red Mendoza's The Notebook", again.

"Now, there are some people who say that Hero TV's removal was not a removal, and instead, rumors are abound that the channel will undergo a "facelift" to not just target anime fans, but to also target e-sports and the "geek" audience and a possibility that some shows will be airing on IwanTV, or even make it as a channel using the platform of IWanTV.

Let me tell you one thing, I think ABS-CBN is stupid to pull the channel out of its satellite air and give it a year to "rehash" and to think about new programming concepts. I am not buying it, plain and simple.

Hero TV died because of the network's plain stupidity, the network died in vain, and no other replacement channel will replace what Hero did.

Especially if the replacement channel will be run and micromanaged by the same network meddlers that closed off Hero TV.

ABS-CBN’s HERO revamps as a “digital portal”

A week after the Filipino language anime channel HEROtv closed its doors, their social media accounts has officially announced that the anime channel will now be revamped into a “digital portal”, which will now be known simply as HERO.

It is unclear if the new online service will be handled by the same staff of the anime channel or ABS-CBN has installed a new team to handle the digital assets, but Anime Pilipinas understands that some of the channel’s staff may be absorbed by other departments of the network.

After some confusion from their followers, HERO has released a more detailed explanation on Thursday about the revamp.

The new service explains that the decision to keep HERO as an online brand is because it “presented opportunities for different institutions to easily reach individuals around the world.”

The service also adds that they plan to produce anime, pop-culture and gaming contents using its social media accounts, YouTube channel and a new website, but it’s still unclear what kind of content they plan to present.

Unfortunately, the new digital portal “will not be airing anime titles anymore”, which shuts down any speculation that the defunct channel will transform into a video on-demand service.
