I think a minimal amount would be fine unless there is a larger interest from the Filipino abroad audience for it.

I think its distracting and I get more annoyed when I see the translations not even close to what it should be (but that's just me lol).

True, it's actually fine the way it is now. TFC doesn't need to rely on subtitles, unless it's for MMK Classics and they should just leave it that way. I don't know about anything else to subtitle. TFC is fine the way it is without subtitles.


I hope they don't go the next level though and dub some of their shows in English.  :-X

I understand the reasoning for wanting to have more and more programming with subtitles but it is quite distracting. MMK Classics is fine as is. I can recall a few years ago they had Kapamilya Channel (now retitled as BRO network) used to have some programs in Tagalog and that threw me for a loop. It just seemed out of left field and really didn't make sense.

Oh don't say that out loud... they might just do it.  :'(

Correct. I wonder if MMK Classics will continue to air on TFC after the MMK 20th anniversary branding ends.


Okay lol!  :-X :-X :-X

They do read this board (more than normal) so some of those ideas actually happen... and some ideas should have never been let out of the bag in the first place.

Are we talking about hard-subbing hear, meaning the subtitle is permanently available on the video as opposed to subtitles you can turn on or off when watching a DVD on a DVD Player.

If there's a way to turn on or off the subtitle while watching a TFC broadcast, like a close caption which allow you to turn it on or off, why not make them all available subtittled.  In this way, if,  say a non-filipino happen to watch a  TFC show during a visit to his filipino friend's house, he can turn on or off the subtitle and watch  TFC and understand it. 

They should always keep their options open so that in the future when there is a demand for Filipino content from non-Filipinos, they will be prepared to deal with it.

In my opinion, and in addition to subtitling all their shows, they should also make copies of shows that are dubbed in english because in african countries where Filipino shows are shown, the preferred viewing by the african viewers is that the show must be dub in english.

In my opinion, I think that a subtitle function should be available. Speaking as a 1/2 Filipino 1/2 Australians experience who can understand most of the Tagalog language. It should not be permanent on the screen, as it would be distracting for most viewers. It should be available by pressing one of the coloured buttons on the remote control.

That's my 5c...

Cheers...

We like the subtitles but my problem is that it's not an exact translation... unlike Japanese where word for word apply.. for learning purpose say for my kids it would be great if what he reads is what he gets.. and don't say it won't flow properly.. I've been reading it along side my son and I'd have to correct the subtitles 70% of the time..  :o :(
