The CEO, Mr. Katigbak mentioned companies like Youtube and Netflix which offering pay-per-view services despite having no franchise in the Philippines.

Well just to explain.

NETFLIX and Youtube is an ONLINE Service!Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) They are not using radio/TV frequency like ABS-CBN.

At present, the Philippines does not have rules which regulate services offered by companies that deliver audio, video, or media content through the Internet.

While you ABS-CBN is a broadcasting company wherein the distribution of your audio or video content to a dispersed audience via any electronic mass communications medium, but typically one using the electromagnetic spectrum

Unlike Netflix and Youtube that are online services, your broadcasting is using air frequency that requires a license. Licensing became necessary as broadcast frequencies constitute a scarce resource. Were as online services will vary on internet speed and internet bandwidth.



It is not to be compared because they are using a different medium.

Sa madaling salita ang Netflix at YouTube po ay Internet ang medium para magamit, while ABS-CBN is a Broadcasting Company na gumagamit ng electromagnetic spectrum sa hangin(radio waves). Hindi po sila magkapareho.

As CEO Mr. Katigbak should know the difference, he might not be a technical guy but should at least know how his network, works.
