Get ready for more news and public affairs programming in Bacolod City as the country’s broadcast pioneer, Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC), is set to launch its popular DZRH TV on digital channel on February 6.

Blanco emphasized that the difference between digital and analog TV is huge, explaining that the digital TV offers sharp, crisp images and superior sound, along with important emergency alerts that can keep you safe during disasters.

Blanco said that several TV networks are providing affordable digital set-top boxes compatible with most existing televisions.

With the analog switch-off date drawing closer, Filipinos are encouraged to choose digital and experience the clearer, safer, and more enriching world of television broadcasting.
