New graphics today. Very simple, no more Philippine scenery in the graphics.

Their new slogan is the same as ABS-CBN's. TFC: Kwento ng Summer Natin.

Will this foreshadow TFC's very own "Kwento ng Summer Natin" summer ID? Because the ABS-CBN Summer ID has still not aired...?

This hasn't been a new issue but I hate how the East Coast gets certain programs into the wee hours of the morning and California gets it in 'Primetime.' For example, late night we had BB. Pilipinas... it aired at 2AM (California was around 11PM). There better be a replay! So annoying!

I know right, what if TFC had an extra feed for Eastern? So we have like a TFC Pacific and TFC Eastern? I don't know if that will hurt their "budget" of some sort but it would definitely be more ideal, especially programs like PGT and GGV too in Eastern Time. :(

It would be nice if they did that but then they would have to do that for other timezones.

Filipino lifestyle channel launches on Time Warner Cable

By Meg James
3:07 PM PDT, April 26, 2013


Filipinos living in Los Angeles and San Diego can now tune in to a primarily English-language channel called the Lifestyle Network, which launched this month on local Time Warner Cable systems.

The new channel is owned by ABS-CBN International, a subsidiary of the largest broadcasting company in the Philippines. Based in Redwood City, Calif., ABS-CBN International has operated in the U.S. for two decades and runs the Filipino Channel. The Lifestyle Network will be a blend of programming from the Philippines, the U.S. and other countries.

Programming is scheduled to include coverage of concerts and local festivals, a food show called "Chef's Table," a lifestyle magazine program called "Us Girls," and the news program "The World Tonight."

More than 1.5 million Filipinos live in California, with nearly half residing in the greater Los Angeles region. San Diego and Santa Clara counties also have large Filipino American communities.

"We recognize that The Filipino Channel needed a companion specialty channel that caters more to Filipinos who are looking for programming that addresses personal improvement, individual empowerment and expansion of one's world," ABS-CBN North America marketing executive Jun Del Rosario said in a statement.

Time Warner Cable has been tweaking its programming lineup. The company is trying to maintain customers, in part by adding destination channels. Time Warner Cable is spending tens of millions of dollars a year in its push into local sports programming with a channel devoted to the Los Angeles Lakers and another planned to televise Los Angeles Dodgers games beginning next season.

The Lifestyle Network is found on Channel 683 in Los Angeles and Channel 691 in San Diego for Time Warner Cable digital customers.

^ I would watch that but I don't have that on DirecTv. I get bored with BRO and their 'male' sports/programs. At least they give you other options.

Hope that will be available for all TFC subscribers down the line.

BTW I have a bone to pick with Atty. Michael J. Gurfinkel and his latest commercial spot talking about a 'proposed' bill or what-have-you that COULD POSSIBLY grant around 20,000 green cards (in 2014 and vastly more in years to come) to 'lower-level' occupations like caregivers, maids, etc.

Ummm... what annoys me about this commercial is that its not even official. Why give some people FALSE HOPE by talking about it when it hasn't even passed? Why bring it up already? Yes there is a possibility but there are no guarantees. Does Atty Gurfinkel just want more airtime on TFC?

Yup I hope we get this soon on DirecTV, I guess they just want to have a test run before officially launching the whole network. And it sounds like they will have even more local programming (particularly the LA area), so this might be more interactive than TFC itself!

Citizen Pinoy has been repetitive lately... it's always the same question and answers. I wish we had more unique stories and add new elements into the show to give everyone more true hope. I miss the days when Gel co-hosted and when they had filmed in the Philippines.
