While GMA Network Inc. and SkyCable Corp. engage in a word war over signal disruption during the airing of Eat Bulaga’s “Kalye-Serye” segment, an executive of rival pay-television operator, Cignal TV, committed to offer fans of AlDub, the tandem of Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza), a high-definition TV experience.

“We are happy about AlDub. Our countrymen want to watch it. AlDub has really created waves in the industry. The highest rating right now on TV, that’s why we want to make sure that they are clear in Cignal,” Cignal TV chief operating officer Oscar Reyes Jr. said.

Reyes even advised subscribers of SkyCable to shift to Cignal TV if they want a clear and high-quality TV resolution when watching Eat Bulaga’s “Kalye-Serye” segment.

He also congratulated Tony Tuviera, the producer of Eat Bulaga for creating “Kalye-Serye”, the most successful segment in TV today.

The Kalye-serye segment, which features the split-screen romance of Alden and Yaya Dub, scored another record-breaking feat on Twitter with over 25 million tweets generated for the hashtag #ALDubEBforLOVE on Saturday.

GMA Network earlier said the longest running noontime show Eat Bulaga, driven by phenomenal success of its AlDub/Kalye-serye segment, led the roster of Kapuso shows across all areas.

For the period Aug. 1 to 31, GMA posted 39.8 percent ratings over ABS-CBN’s 32.2 percent and TV5’s 7.5 percent.  In Metro Manila, GMA posted 42 percent household shares, while ABS-CBN had 28.4 percent and TV5, 7.9 percent.
