ABS-CBN continues to showcase its world-class shows abroad as two of its top action series, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” and “Sandugo” hit the airwaves in 41 countries in the African continent via the StarTimes channel.
“FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” which is internationally known as “Brothers” can now be seen in South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, among many others. New episodes of the Coco Martin-led series about a police officer and his pursuit of high-profile criminals behind the death of his brother air weeknights on television via the Kapamilya Channel, CineMo, A2Z, TV5, TFC, and stream online Kapamilya Online Live, iWant TFC, WeTV, and iflix.
Meanwhile, “Sandugo,” known abroad as “Fists of Fate,” began airing in Africa last May 2021, also via the StarTimes channel. Starring Aljur Abrenica and Ejay Falcon, “Sandugo” is about two brothers, who grew up separately and eventually ended up on opposite sides of the law, with one working as an undercover agent and the other, living as an outlaw.
The two action series are not the only shows that enjoy viewership across the globe. In 2020, ABS-CBN expanded its distribution not just in Africa but also in Latin American, and Asian territories, selling 16 titles, including ” FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” “Kadenang Ginto,” “Dahil May Isang Ikaw,” “The General’s Daughter,” and more. The Malaysian adaptation of “Tayong Dalawa,” entitled “Angkara Cinta,” was the most-watched show on the Astro Prima channel in 2020.
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.
