It seems that DBS’s Plan A has been abandoned but they have a Plan B.
According to an insider, Delta Broadcasting System (DBS) Inc. finally conceded Friday their task to revive their own channel on UHF channel 35 by shelving their regular test broadcasts since July last year.
“After 8 or 9 months, the electronic communications engineers and first-class radio-telephone operators assessed to us from the Antipolo transmitter that our test broadcasts are too adverse to be received in the Metro and nearby provinces,” Bro. Ryan America said.
One of its staunchest critics, whose name is redacted, was finally relieved from this decision to shelve after breaking their promises to relaunch on specific dates since 2013.
However, no hope is lost for the technical staff as they consider acquiring Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC) 13, their parent broadcaster for almost 25 years.
“Naalala ko na kawawa pala ang Channel 13 sa lahat ng aspeto (I remember that Channel 13 is pitiful in all aspects),” he added “recently, I heard na nawalan ng signal ang (they lost their signal on) IBC 13 for the past few weeks.”
Delegated by the owners, Bro. America is currently perusing the proposal and position to best out among five other contesting bidders for the long-overdue privatization game.
