Philippine media and entertainment company ABS-CBN Corporation announced that its two hit action series are now airing in Sub-Saharan Africa via the StarTimes channel.


The firm said its primetime action series “Brothers” can now be viewed in South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Madagascar, among many others, while “Fists of Fate” began airing in as many countries in Africa last May.

The two action series are not the only shows that enjoy viewership across the globe. In 2020, ABS-CBN expanded its content distribution not just in Africa but also in Latin American, and Asian territories, selling 16 titles.

ABS-CBN shows are available on television via the Kapamilya Channel, TV5, A2Z, and Jeepney TV across the Philippines and online via Kapamilya Online Live, which is streamed on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube and Facebook pages.

Its shows and films are also available for streaming on iWantTFC and TFC, while some of its programs are streaming on Netflix, WeTV and iFlix.

The company continues to syndicate its content through various streaming services and operate other businesses that do not require a legislative franchise, such as international licensing and distribution, digital, and cable TV.

It has been a premier source of high-quality Filipino programming in over 50 territories worldwide and has sold over 50,000 hours of content worldwide.

Living up to this recognition, ABS-CBN International Distribution commits to add to its line-up of high-caliber programs and movies with cast and storylines that appeal to various cultures.
