ABOUT ABS-CBN CORPORATION
ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ leading media and entertainment company, began as a radio and television network that pioneered many firsts in the history of broadcasting in the country: the first provincial station, first remote live telecast, first color broadcast, first live satellite transmission, and first coverage of an international event.
It was in 1953 when Filipino families were introduced to television technology through the Alto Broadcasting System, which was later bought by the Chronicle Broadcasting Network, a network owned by brothers Don Eugenio Lopez Sr. and Fernando Lopez. The two networks were merged to form ABS-CBN, which under Eugenio Lopez Jr., fondly called “Kapitan”, followed by his son Eugenio III, became the largest network in the nation with a broadcast facility that was among the most advanced in Asia.
ABS-CBN’s supremacy soon spread from radio and TV to other industries — cable TV, publishing, music, and film, making it the Philippines’ undisputed leader in content. Overseas, ABS-CBN shows were watched by Filipinos on television and online via TFC, The Filipino Channel and TFC.tv, and eventually by foreign audiences as well through syndication.
Rapidly transitioning into an agile digital company, ABS-CBN is determined to deliver engaging content experiences to every Filipino anytime, anywhere and in any device. Its pioneering spirit has persisted with the change of times. It is the trailblazer in production and distribution of content online and on mobile devices through ABS-CBNmobile. It also led Philippine media’s transition to digital television with ABS-CBN TVplus.
Known as the “Kapamilya Network,” ABS-CBN has become a part of the Filipino Family. It has also embarked on new frontiers — moving away from screens, to bring the Kapamilya experience into more areas of people’s lives, up close and physical through live events, theme parks, and merchandise.
Still, at the heart of ABS-CBN is the desire to give back to the people and to help build a nation that is headed towards a sustainable, long-term transformation, whether through its shows, its products, or its public service programs. Whatever happens, ABS-CBN’s vision and mission remains the same — to be in the service of the Filipino.
