Vice Ganda made headlines recently declaring ABS-CBN is no longer applying for a franchise as it is already owned by somebody else.

He did so in reaction to critics saying they are merely supporting a particular candidate in the hopes that ABS-CBN will be granted a new franchise.

He said, “ABS is no longer after any franchise, okay? Ganoon yun, shunga kayo!”

Reacting on the issue is Arnell Ignacio.

On his vlog, Arnell explained why Vice’s statement is wrong.

Addressing the TV host, he said: “Vice, walang may may-ari ng franchise kasi wala naman lumabas na franchise. At yun ay libre. Ang tinutukoy mo ay yung frequency.”

He went on, “Let me explain. Yung franchise, puwedeng-puwede talaga ninyong i-apply muli.

“So, itong pagbibigay ninyo ng suporta (sa isang kandidato), e, puwede talagang maidugtong dun dahil kung saka-sakaling papabor yung susunod na administrasyon na the network will be resurrected, e, talagang it will go through the process. Pero hindi imposibleng ito na ay ma-grant.

“Next, the NTC, e, merong ina-assign na frequency para diyan sa mabibigyan ng prangkisa na mag-operate ng network.

“You need this frequency, ito yung channel, so you cannot go back to the previous channel that you were using before.

“Puwede kayong ma-assignan ng bagong channel, maaari Channel 6 na kayo or Channel 8 or whatever, so it is not impossible.”

Arnell added, “Of course, you will always keep in mind that ang prangkisa ay ina-apply sa Congress. Ang frequency ay ina-assign ng NTC. Yun ‘yon. So, parang ang ating palitan, ang ating inihahain na argumento at depensa ay base sa mas sound na basehan. Pero ang inyong karapatan kung sino ang inyong susuportahan, e, ‘yan ay hindi nangangailangan ng franchise.”

Vice is yet to respond.
