ABS-CBN’s Yey and other TVPlus channels to go off-air in Metro Manila

The National Telecommunications Commission issued on Tuesday a cease-and-desist order against ABS-CBN related to its TVPlus channels.

The media company was ordered to immediately shut down the operation of its digital TV transmission using Amcara Broadcasting Corp’s Channel 43.

This means that viewers with TVPlus set-up box in Metro Manila will unable to watch the TVPlus channels, which includes Cine MO!, Yey!, TeleRadyo, Jeepney TV, Asianovela Channel, and its pay-per-view channel KBO.

The commission has also ordered ABS-CBN subsidiary SkyCable to stop its satellite broadcast nationwide.

The broadcast franchise of ABS-CBN expired on May 4 after which the company shut down its free TV and radio operations.

The headline has been updated to reflect that the cease-and-desist only covers Metro Manila.
