I am using a cable connection for my television for a long span of time now because it includes local and international channels. However, I was not able to utilize it due to my busy schedule and I just realized that I paid my monthly bill w/o using it at all. Infact, during my weekends I only watch local channels like ABS-CBN and GMA7.
When a digital box was released to the market, I was thinking to grab one. ABS-CBN Company announces this “Mahiwagang Black Box” to the televiewers on what they can get of having this box in their households. ABS-CBN TV Plus (formerly SKY TV+ or simply TV+ and stylized as ABS-CBN TVplus), is a digital terrestrial television product and service owned and operated by ABS-CBN Corporation.
Mahiwagang Black box – It is light and small box.
ABS-CBN Mobile Sim Card- you need this to activate some of the channels owned by ABS-CBN as well as activation of the warranty.
User’s Manual- Your best friend on basic trouble shooting
Audio and Video cable – this will connect between your TV and the box. Disadvantage: there is no HDMI port.
The adapter – it is requisite to give power of the digital box.
Remote control – I love how it looks like – very elegant. And the good thing, it has a free battery.
Antenna and cable – the cable length is enough to bring the end of the antenna outside - to capture signal. But I would love if they provide longer cable so that I can extend the antenna towards the rooftop.
Meanwhile, an issue came out that ABS-CBN TV plus is a way of the ABS-CBN company to monopolize the televiewers because it only guarantees you of having the ABC-CBN channels. But that is not true, I personally experience the crystal clear output from GMA7 and GMA News TV using the ABS-CBN TV plus. So basically, it will still vary on your location.
ABS-CBN TV plus gave me a Crystal clear picture and sound with Affordable one-time fee compared with cable connection. It is beneficial to me because there is no need for me to pay a monthly bill – so it is a huge saving. And it works perfectly to me
