Knowledge Channel's “School at Home” Campaign Bags Award from League of Corporate Foundations

Knowledge Channel Foundation’s (KCFI) “School at Home” campaign, which made possible distance learning during the pandemic using Knowledge Channel’s platforms on-air, online, and offline was adjudged “Outstanding CSR Project in Education” in the recently concluded 2021 League of Corporate Foundations- Corporate Social Responsibility (LCF-CSR) Guild Awards.

The “School at Home Project” provided children who were forced to stay home during the pandemic the chance to continue learning via shows that tackle various school subjects, including Math, Science, Filipino, English, Araling Panlipunan, Values, Arts, and Physical Education. These videos are aligned with the Most Essential Learning Competencies or MELCs set by the Department of Education and complement the lessons in the self-learning modules and those that air on DepEd TV.

We want to be able to help the Department of Education, our teachers and parents to support the learning of the child. Aside from the DepEd-provided self learning modules, we have prepared at least one video lesson per learning competency, for each of the most essential learning competencies. These video lessons are what kids need at this time to be able to better learn,” Edric Calma, Director of Operations said as he accepted the award for KCFI.

KCFI undertook the initiative in response to the difficulties brought to the education sector in 2020, which drastically changed the learning modalities from face-to-face to distance learning, leaving teachers, students, and parents ill-equipped with the pedagogical and technical skills needed in the new normal.

Despite facing dire circumstances, including the cease-and-desist order against SKYdirect and ABS-CBN TV Plus and the Congress’ dismissal of the ABS-CBN franchise bid affecting over 7 million homes, KCFI remained relentless in supporting teachers, students, parents and in helping improve teaching and learning in the new normal through media and technology.

The LCF, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary is a network of corporate foundations and corporations that promotes and enhances the strategic practice of Corporate Social Responsibility.

Knowledge Channel’s “School at Home” campaign continues to serve Filpino children, parents and teachers via SKYcable, PCTA partner cable operators, Cignal, GSAT, SatLite, and on A2Z two hours every morning (7:00 to 8:40 AM) from Monday to Sunday. Video lessons are also available on and on YouTube.

KCFI is one of LCF’s long-standing partners and has led its Education Committee in 2018 and 2019. Today, LCF’s members continue to grow, enabling more collaborations for the betterment of the nation.

“He’s Into Her” Phenomenal Loveteam Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano Featured in their First Digital Cover

Metro.Style website, under the Metro Group, once again brought together the most exciting duo today via a cover. Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano (aka DonBelle) make the coolest onscreen couple in their hot, trending, and record-breaking teen rom-com series “He’s Into Her” that's consistently been the most viewed series on iWantTFC.

For the cover, they were given the chic preppy style treatment by the Metro team, referencing some of the most popular school-inspired fashion dramas and movies like Gossip Girl, Clueless, and Riverdale. It also featured top international fashion brands and local designers.

DonBelle, as one of the most exciting tandems today, express the best of their generation - they’re talented, intelligent, hardworking, and undeniably beautiful,” says Metro.Style editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra.We have high hopes for this pair, so you can definitely see more of them in Metro.Style in the coming weeks.

In this exclusive cover feature, they shared refreshing takes on their characters, and expressed their thoughts about being labeled as the next big loveteam. It's impossible to pigeonhole what any one person can take away from the series. But if you ask Donny and Belle, or maybe even their characters Deib and Max, it's really just about one thing: love.

"I love what Direk Chad [Vidanes] said. Love doesn't choose. It doesn't choose a specific age, a specific person. It happens to everyone, which is why a lot of people, even if you're not in high school like in 'He's Into Her,' [enjoy the show]," said Donny.

Donny and Belle, the rest of the cast, and the series' showrunners have pretty much been in awe of the outpouring support from fans—including those who first read the novel before watching the show. "There was pressure at first. Syempre, kailangan naming maabot 'yung expectations nila, and knowing that the series is somehow a bit far from the book, may pressure. I'm glad and I'm really thankful that everyone liked it. I'm really blessed to be a part of this project," Belle shared.

This cover was photographed by Ria Regino. The glam team was composed of Ryan Pareno, Carell Garcia, and John Lozano. The Metro team behind the shoot includes editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra, fashion editor Randz Manucom, fashion assistant Carla Buyo, editorial assistant Cara Tirona, and People section editor Grace Libero-Cruz.

TV5 Registers Growth in the Nationwide Viewership Ratings

True to its new network campaign “Iba sa 5,” which was launched in May 2021 to showcase the channel’s unique programming lineup and topnotch entertainment produced by the best content creators and production houses, TV5 has shown a remarkable viewership growth nationwide - proving that the Kapatid Network is now becoming a household favorite to more and more Filipino viewers across the country.

According to the latest Nielsen ratings, TV5’s performance has been on a consistent uptrend. With its weekday primetime block growing from a 5.3 audience share in January to 12.9 as of end June, and its weekend primetime improving from a 4.2 audience share to 6.9, the network has registered an 89% growth in total viewership, and is now the country’s second most highly rated channel. TV5 attributes this success to the Filipino families who welcome the network into their homes by patronizing the quality programs that continue to bring happiness to a wide range of audiences.

TV5’s viewership growth in the southern region has also contributed to the significant rise in its primetime audience share - an increase of 150% in Visayas and 134% in Mindanao. This growth is most evident in TV5’s pillar primetime programs - Frontline Pilipinas, Sing Galing, Niña Niño, John En Ellen, Rolling In It, The Wall Philippines, and Puto — whose continuously climbing ratings saw considerable gains in the region.

These ratings affirm the network’s new programming thrust of providing different kinds of shows for different kinds of audiences. As Dino M. Laurena, Chief Operating Officer of Media5 explained, “Iba-iba ang mapapanood mo dito. Iba-ibang viewers ang mag-e-enjoy dito. Iba-iba rin ang mga artista at content creator na makikita mo dito. Our collaborations with great artists and creative minds in the industry allow us to offer something fresh, new, and unexpected. That is what makes us truly IBA.”

The positive response to the campaign and the growth in viewership are highly encouraging, and the network is determined to keep improving its performance. CignalTV and TV5 President & CEO, Robert P. Galang said, “We are thrilled that more and more viewers are tuning in to our shows. We will continue to challenge ourselves to do even better, and we promise to keep creating shows that delight all kinds of audiences. And while we now have the best digital TV coverage in Mega Manila, I want to personally say, daghang salamat kaayo to our Vismin Kapatids for their support. We will further expand our DTT network in North and Central Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao by the end of July, ensuring truly nationwide coverage, so that Filipinos all over the country can enjoy watching TV5.”

By offering more varied content to cater to different audiences and opening their doors to more talents, TV5 welcomes more viewers from diverse backgrounds and locations —giving more Filipinos a new home that’s a happy haven from the challenging world outside. Truly, IBA SA 5.

Look: Sneak Peak of Jodi Sta. Maria and Sue Ramirez Confrontation in “The Broken Marriage Vow”

Anticipation continues to grow for Jodi Sta. Maria and Sue Ramirez’s portrayal of the wife and the mistress in “The Broken Marriage Vow,” which gave a glimpse of their confrontation scenes in a table read video released by ABS-CBN and Dreamscape Entertainment today (July 9).

Jodi and Sue said they are most looking forward to doing the face-off between their characters Dra. Jill Ilustre and Lexy Lucero, the wife and mistress of Zanjoe Marudo’s character, David Ilustre, in the Filipino remake of the hit BBC series “Doctor Foster.”

The script reading was exciting. I can’t wait to do the scene where Lexy meets Dra. Jill,” shared Jodi. “It was a good run and I know that there’s more to do and more ways to play around with our characters.”

Sue, on the other hand, said, “Everyone probably knows who sexy Lexy is. She is the other woman. There is one scene in particular that I’m very excited to do. It’s the scene where Lexy finds out, through Jill, that she’s pregnant.

Jodi is also excited to do the heartbreaking pivotal scene where Jill emotionally confronts David about his affair, which he calmly denies.

David falls in love with two people. Because of this, there will be conflict not only within our family, but also among our closest friends and the people around us,” shared Zanjoe.

For the director of the series Direk Connie Macatuno, the script reading allowed her vision for the show to slowly come to life.

Also present at the cast table read were Zaijian Jaranilla, Susan Africa, Ronnie Lazaro, Empress Schuck, Bianca Manalo, Rachel Alejandro, Angeli Bayani, Joem Bascon, Brent Manalo, and Jane Oineza.

How Much Would You Pay for a Jacket That Makes You Look Like Joshua Garcia?

How much would you pay to be happy?

Some may think that material sources of happiness come with a high price, but not with Jollibee

The country’s #1 fast food chain launched the second instalment of its three-part JolliSavers commercial series, asserting its stance of bringing joy to us all at an affordable price through its sulit-sarap bestsellers.

The clip opens with “Wil” trying on a nice jacket in a department store, only to find out its mind-blowing price. He then starts sprouting out sarcastic rationales for its seemingly unreasonable value, including perhaps suddenly looking like handsome actor and Jollibee ambassador Joshua Garcia whenever he puts on the jacket.

With this, we are reminded that ‘di dapat mahal maging masaya, especially with JolliSavers - the more affordable, more delicious option for happiness. Treat yourself to any of its crave-worthy menu items: the langhap-sarap Yumburger at PHP 35.00; the sweet-sarap Jolly Spaghetti at PHP 50.00; the beefy-saucy Burger Steak at PHP 50.00; and the todo toppings, todo sarap Jolly Hotdog at PHP 50.00.

ETC Channel Celebrates 17th Anniversary with All-Time High Ratings

ETC Channel, a general entertainment channel seen on both digital free TV and pay TV in the Philippines, marks its 17th year with the highest ratings in ETC’s history.

ETC was established in 2004 as a local cable channel. Since then, it has transitioned to free TV and now digital free TV, growing its audience as it caters to a wider market of viewers.

The channel takes pride in selecting shows for its viewers. “Since we started, ETC has always been focused on the way we program to our very specific audience of women,” declares Mr. Wilson Tieng, CEO of Solar Entertainment, the parent company of ETC. “Seventeen years ago, we picked the latest, hottest, most popular Hollywood series, reality and competition shows and entertainment variety/talk shows for the audience who wanted to stay current and trendy and hip.”

The genres were broad - from drama, suspense and family-oriented, to comedy, fashion and celebrity features. Through the years, ETC’s programming has expanded to include travel, food, health and music. It has also seen an expansion in audience going from a female skewed channel to a general entertainment channel. “We want to accommodate additional audiences who are mature and have varied interests other than knowing the latest. Our standard requirement in choosing and producing shows is and will always be high quality and great production output from industry experts, to ensure viewing that is tasteful, smart and very pleasurable. We have never compromised on those criteria in all the years of ETC’s existence,” Mr. Tieng emphasizes.

ETC’s high standards paved the way for the acquisition of top-rating US television shows such as “Glee,” “Gossip Girl,” and “Pretty Little Liars,” and the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed Turkish dizi (series) “Endless Love,” “Everywhere I Go” and Hayat,” as well as Academy Award winners and global box-office hits aired on its movie block entitled “ETC Flix.” ETC also celebrates the best in locally-produced content as shown when it became the local production partner of “Project Runway Philippines.

In keeping with the audience’s changing needs and preferences, ETC launched its localized content last year through their program “ETCinema” wherein classic Tagalog movies are aired, and their groundbreaking “ETCerye” with foreign series dubbed in Tagalog. According to Kantar Media, the first three Tagalized Turkish series to be aired on “ETCerye,” namely, “Everywhere I Go,” “Endless Love” and “Hayat,” obtained high triple-digit ratings.

“Everywhere I Go,” a romantic series about a male boss and the female employee he lives with, ranked second on ETC’s primetime top programs for the entire 2020, with 69 of the 75 episodes recording triple-digit ratings and three episodes (Ep. 38, 32, and 68) getting more than 334 points. “Hayat,” a dizi set in Turkey’s fashion industry, is on pace to be the second highest rated program on ETC as it continued with three-digit ratings for all episodes. Three episodes (Ep. 60, Ep. 1 and Ep. 64) obtained 608+ points. ETC’s most popular Turkish series so far and highest rating show in its history is the rich girl-poor boy epic “Endless Love Season 1,” with practically all of its 115 episodes getting triple-digit ratings ranging from 400+ points to 644+ points. ETC is currently airing “Endless Love Season 2” and it seems that the ratings of this new show is expected to meet, if not surpass, the first season.

As ETC moves into its 18th year, the channel continues to bring quality and innovative content. Viewers can expect new shows under the ETCerye block, and new films under ETCinema and ETC Flix movie blocks. Before the year ends, ETC is launching a locally produced show aimed at helping women create a happy homelife during the pandemic. The channel also plans to bring a new cooking show and animation show in 2022. More localized content are also being developed. Mr. Tieng guarantees, “ETC viewers can be sure we’ll be giving more of what they love.”

ETC is seen on SkyCable Ch.16, Cignal Ch. 21, CableLink Ch. 34, DTT Ch. 21 in Metro Manila, and in over 200 cable operators nationwide. If you have signal problems on your digital TV box, rescan to continue enjoying ETC. For updates, visit, follow ETC on Facebook and etc_channel on Instagram and YouTube.

Seth Dungca's Song "Pangako" Breaks Guinness World Record for the Most Music Videos Made for a Song

Filipino singer-composer Seth Dungca’s single “Pangako” recently spawned a whopping total of 64 music videos, handily surpassing the standing Guinness World Record for Most Music Videos Made for One Song.

The official world record is currently held by British EDM duo Coldcut for their 1998 song “Timber,” which has a total of five different music videos. Dungca’s “Pangako” easily tops that record by 59 more videos.

“Pangako” generated a plethora of music videos when Dungca’s record label Insight Music launched a film competition in partnership with UFC to crown the official music video for the song. As of July 8, 64 people have submitted official entries, which may all be viewed for free on the YouTube Insight 360.

While YouTube provides proof of the song’s record-breaking achievement, Dungca and Insight Music still need to get official verification from Guinness World Records. Insight Music President and Chief Creative Director Chris Cahilig discloses that the label is currently in the process of applying for the record, but he is confident that they’ve broken the 23-year-old feat.

It’s clear that we beat the current record by a landslide. Obviously, 64 is decidedly greater than 5,” says Cahilig. “Every single one of these entries is also officially published on our YouTube channel. And they’re all unique, so the proof is right there.

The process of world record validation can take up to 12 weeks, shortened by the organization’s Priority Application scheme that may take only five days.

We hope to get this verified as soon as possible,” adds Cahilig, “because as far as we’re concerned, Seth and Pangako have earned it.

As for the artist himself, Dungca thinks earning a Guinness World Record would be a once-in-a-lifetime achievement that he earnestly hopes will push through.

I would never say no to having something as prestigious as a Guinness World Record,” says Dungca, “and to receive it because of all these uniquely beautiful music videos for my song fills me with an infinite amount of gratitude.”

Dungca says more than just the bragging rights of being a world record owner, seeing all the creativity from the 64 videos has made Pangako his proudest work yet.

It’s crazy how much effort people put into making these videos. It shows that something about my song compelled them to direct these personal, moving, sometimes wacky music videos,” says Dungca. “The world record is really just a bonus. It’s already a huge win for me just seeing how music and film can come together to express real human beauty. I’m happy we got to do that with Pangako.”

Dungca believes that choosing from the submitted music videos poses a tough challenge for the selection team. “I’ve seen all 64,” says Dungca, “and let me tell you, the judges are in for a frustrating time. Each video strikes a chord in the viewer’s heart in a uniquely artistic way.”

Insight Music recently announced the Top 20 music videos that will compete for the grand prize of 50,000 pesos and the distinction of being Pangako’s official music video. The label is set to announce the winner along with the People’s Choice Award for most YouTube views on July 30.

Catriona Gray Gets Her Groove On and Puts NU-Disco Twist to "R.Y.F"

Catriona Gray adds a funky twist to her music as she introduces “R.Y.F NU-Disco,” a groovier version of her “R.Y.F” single freshly released under Star Music and CS Music.

“R.Y.F’s” latest rendition features a dance music beat evocative of the 1970’s disco sound.

At the launch of “R.Y.F” last month, Catriona talked about the track’s significance and her wish that it will motivate listeners to never give up on their dreams.

I hope that the song could really be a reflection that life isn’t easy, getting to a dream isn’t easy,” she said, citing the part of the song lyrics about how important it is to take one step at a time.

The crowned Miss Universe 2018 also shared how much being a Filipino means to her and how it translates into her music offering.

I am a cultural ambassador but I’m also someone who really tries to uplift the lives of fellow Filipinos. And I feel like that’s the message of ‘R.Y.F,’” she pointed out.

The beauty queen then fondly recalled how the original “Raise Your Flag” song, written by Trisha Denise and ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo, was inspired by her memorable statements from her Miss Universe journey.

I know it started as an ode to my journey in Miss Universe. But I hope that through my interpretation of the song, it can evolve to how I see it. It’s about raising your voice for something,” said the Kapamilya singer.

KZ Tandingan originally recorded “Raise Your Flag” in 2019 with a rap verse written and performed by Kritiko. Last May, Catriona released her own rendition, “R.Y.F.”

Check out Catriona’s latest single, “R.Y.F NU-Disco,” out now on various music streaming services worldwide. For more details, follow Star Music on Facebook (, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram (@StarMusicPH).
