SkyCable denies GMA Network’s claim
SkyCable Corp. on Wednesday disputed GMA Network Inc.’s claim of signal disruption during Eat Bulaga’s “Kalye-Serye” segment.
SkyCable, the pay television unit of ABS-CBN Corp., said there was no network problem covering July to August 2015 period that could have resulted in the loss of GMA 7’s signal.
“If there were incidents of signal loss affecting certain portions of the network in the areas and period referred to, these affected other channels as well, not just GMA 7,” SkyCable said.
The cable TV operator, however, said it would continue to cooperate with the National Telecommunications Commission if the regulator saw the need to further investigate the matter.
“Once again, we take strong exception to GMA’s claim that the signal interruption is confined only to their network since there is no basis for this insinuation,” SkyCable said.
GMA Network, in a five-page letter dated Septe, 17 to NTC, claimed the signal disruptions were “irresponsible acts” on the part of SkyCable, adding they were not isolated cases.
