ABS-CBN sound stages finally open in Bulacan

ABS-CBN Corp. on Wednesday inaugurated two sound stages in San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan, which the multimedia giant says will help reduce production costs of its television shows and movies.

In a statement, ABS-CBN said the new production hub will enable them to produce content at par with international quality standards without having to shoot in remote locations.

The Lopez-led company saw its production costs grow 8% in the nine-month period to P9.56 billion, which contributed to a 5% increase in its direct costs and expenses to P28.190 billion.

ABS-CBN said last year the sound stages are expected to reduce production expenses by 10% to 15%.

Aside from projected savings, ABS-CBN President and Chief Executive Officer Carlo L. Katigbak said the new facility will help the company expand its audience as it brings its content to the international stage.

“The sound stages represent the beginning of a plan to establish a production hub that include sound stages, backlots, production and post production facilities and offices that will allow both ABS-CBN and Philippine-based productions to match production facilities found elsewhere in the world,” the statement said.

ABS-CBN has a 7.7-hectare land in Bulacan intended to house its new production facilities. The two sound stages that were inaugurated are 1,500-square meter in size with a breezeway, dressing rooms and support rooms for technical facility.

The listed media firm saw its net attributable income fall 32% to P1.627 billion in the first three quarters, affected by its flat consolidated revenue at P29.49 billion and a 5% growth in expenses.

ABS-CBN, GMA claim top ratings in 2018

RIVAL networks ABS-CBN Corp. and GMA Network, Inc. both claimed the top spot in television ratings in 2018, using different audience measurement reports.

Citing Kantar Media, which measured ratings from 2,610 urban and rural homes, ABS-CBN said it trumped all networks in 2018 with an average audience share of 45%, excluding data during the Holy Week.

In a statement, the Lopez-led company said it dominated the Metro Manila and Mega Manila markets where it gained an average audience share of 42% and 36% respectively.

Across islands, ABS-CBN said it also won over the households in Total Luzon with an average audience share of 40%, Total Visayas at 53% and Total Mindanao at 52%.

But challenging ABS-CBN’s claims is GMA, which said its total day people audience share for the whole year reached 40.8% in the National Urban Television Audience Measurement (NUTAM), using data from Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.

In a statement, GMA noted Nielsen’s data covers “a greater number of sampled homes nationwide in comparison to Kantar Media,” with around 900 more households surveyed in Total Urban and Rural Philippines.

GMA said aside from NUTAM, it also dominated Urban Luzon where it tallied a 45.9% total day people audience share for the full year, and Mega Manila with 47.7% share from the start of 2018 to Dec. 22.

But in terms of time block ratings, ABS-CBN said it led the market across all time slots: the morning block (6 a.m. to 12 p.m.) with 38% average audience share, noontime block (12 p.m. to 3 p.m.) with 44% share, afternoon block (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.) with 43% share and prime time block (6 p.m. to 12 a.m.) with 49% share.

It also noted that 16 of its shows made it to the country’s 20 most watched programs in 2018, led by its three-year-old prime time drama “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” with 41.2% average national TV rating.

GMA did not present its time block ratings, but noted its magazine program “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” ranked first in most-watched shows of 2018.

ABS-CBN says iWant subscribers hit 11 million

ABS-CBN Corp. said its newly rebranded streaming platform iWant (formerly iWant TV) now has 11.3 million subscribers.

In a statement, the media giant said iWant’s subscriber base grew by one million within two months after it was relaunched in November. It had 10.3 million subscribers as of October 2018.

“The new iWant recorded 60 million video views in December 2018 and has already gotten two million app downloads on both iOS and Android since it was launched in November last year,” it said.

ABS-CBN’s streaming service, which was originally launched in 2007, features the company’s extensive library of original movies and shows. Aside from live streaming several ABS-CBN shows, it also hosts the company’s old documentaries, specials and films.

The Lopez-led firm said it will start allowing iWant shows to be viewed on televisions through Roku, Android TV boxes and SKY set-top boxes this year.

“New features will also be introduced to subscribers such as offline viewing and commenting on and chatting about their favorite content within the streaming service,” it added.

The iWant service is accessible via a mobile application and through iwant.ph. ABS-CBN has teamed up with both Globe Telecom, Inc. and Smart Communications, Inc. to offer promos to stream iWant videos.

The listed media giant posted a 32% decline in its net attributable income to P1.627 billion in nine-month period on flat consolidated revenue at P29.49 billion and a 5% growth in expenses.

ABS-CBN, GMA Network still locked in television ratings dispute in January

ABS-CBN Corp. and GMA Network, Inc. continued to tussle over television ratings in January, with both media giants claiming the lead but citing different measurement providers.

In a statement, ABS-CBN claimed its nationwide average audience share reached 45% in January versus its rival’s 30%, based on a report from Kantar Media. Its audience measurement provider obtained its data from 2,610 urban and rural homes nationwide.

The Lopez-led firm said its dominance was spread across the country’s capital and the three main island groups, as it recorded 44% average audience share in Metro Manila against GMA’s 23%; 37% in Mega Manila versus GMA’s 28%; 40% in Total Luzon opposed to GMA’s 32%; 54% in Total Visayas edging GMA’s 25%; and 55% in Mindanao beating GMA’s 26%.

On the other hand, GMA said its average total day people audience share in the National Urban Television Audience Measurement (NUTAM) was 37.8% for the first month of the year, higher than ABS-CBN’s 35.9%, with data from Jan. 27 to 31 based on overnight ratings.

GMA had tapped Nielsen TV Audience Measurement, which gathered data from 900 more homes than Kantar, covering the total urban and rural Philippines.

Nielsen’s data showed GMA won 41.9% share of the total day people audience in Urban Luzon against ABS-CBN’s 30.1%. For Mega Manila, GMA also beat its rival with 43.7% share versus 26.8%, based on data from Jan. 1 to 26.

In terms of time slots, both ABS-CBN and GMA once again claimed dominance.

ABS-CBN said it reigned supreme across the board with 50% average audience share for prime time (6 p.m. to 12 a.m.) against GMA’s 29%; 37% for the morning block (6 a.m. to 12 p.m.) versus GMA’s 27%; 42% for the noontime block (12 p.m. to 3 p.m.) versus GMA with 31%; and 44% for the afternoon block (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.) against GMA’s 33%.

Its rival GMA challenged this, saying Nielsen data showed it garnered 34.8% audience share for the morning block versus ABS-CBN’s 30.9%; and 40.1% share in the afternoon block against ABS-CBN’s 34.2%.

Both networks likewise claimed to have produced the most watched shows for the month of January. ABS-CBN said its “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” had the number 1 spot with an audience share of 39.1%, while GMA said its “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS)” topped Nielsen’s list for top-rating shows in the NUTAM.

I have ABS and waiting at 38-40, matagalan to. I like ABS because of its consistent dividend distribution yearly. On other note, it's a low for ABS because of the politics (D30) does not want media who critics his actions. Nonetheless, the renewal of franchise will surely double ABS price at the current. I don't think congress will not grant franchise.
