Guam – GTA TeleGuam is raffling 15 Continental Airlines round-trip tickets to the Philippines to commemorate the launch of The Filipino Channel (TFC) on its digital television service called GUdTV.
As a special introductory promotion through October, the company also is providing TFC for one month at no additional cost and waiving installation costs for all new GUdTV subscribers. Existing GUdTV customers are also able to enjoy one month free when they subscribe to TFC. GTA TeleGuam began offering the 24-hour Tagalog language channel Wednesday as an international premium channel on GUdTV Channel 225.
“Introduction of The Filipino Channel on our GUdTV lineup helps bring Filipinos on Guam closer to their home country,” said Andrew Gayle, executive vice president of product development and management for GTA TeleGuam. “GTA TeleGuam’s ‘GUdTV-TFC Travel Getaway’ promotion and our expanded partnership with ABS-CBN Global are making this happen both figuratively and literally.”
The GUdTV-TFC Travel Getaway raffle includes a weekly drawing through Nov. 5 for a round-trip ticket on Continental Airlines from Guam to Manila. The grand prize to be drawn Nov. 5 includes two round trip tickets on Continental from Guam to Manila, hotel accommodations for three nights in Manila, a tour of the ABS-CBN broadcasting studios and a chance to watch a live show as a member of the audience on Win na Win, Showtime, or ASAP, on TFC.
The raffle is open to any Guam resident at least 18 years of age and limited to one entry per person. No purchase is necessary for a raffle entry. Current and new customers who subscribe for GUdTV service and TFC for at least six months can receive up to three entries for the weekly drawings and grand prize.
GTA TeleGuam expanded its partnership agreement with ABS-CBN Global in response to customer requests to add TFC on the GUdTV lineup.
Prior to adding TFC, GUdTV carried other ABS-CBN channels such as ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC), Cinema One, Myx (USA), Kapamilya Channel, DZMM Teleradyo and Tambayan 101.9.
“GUdTV represents a competitive choice of pay television on Guam and we have the widest choice of international programming to satisfy the diverse interests of our customers,” Gayle said. “For many years, customers had only one choice for TV and for TFC. With the launch of GUdTV and now TFC on GUdTV, our customers can now enjoy their favorite Filipino programming on 100% digital TV.”
Other international channels on the GUdTV lineup include multiple Chinese, French, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish language programming. Many of the channels are exclusive to GUdTV and included as standard offerings on the company’s Choice Digital package.
“Our expanded partnership with GTA TeleGuam to offer TFC through GUdTV is a testament of ABS-CBN’s commitment to be wherever Filipinos are,” said Rocky Roxas, ABS-CBN Global managing director for Australia and Asia Pacific.
To receive an official entry form, residents of Guam can send a self-addressed stamped envelope to GTA TeleGuam Marketing Department, 624 N. Marine Corps Drive, Tamuning, Guam, 96913. Eligible customers are automatically entered in the raffle.
Drawings are held each Friday through Nov. 5. Winners will be notified and listed at http://www.gta.net/guam-cable-tv/GUDTV-TFCGetaway.
GTA TeleGuam launched its 100 percent digital GUdTV service in October 2008 as a competitive alternative to traditional cable television. More than 5,000 island residents and businesses have since switched to GUdTV because of its superior picture quality, extensive channel selection, and value. Basic GUdTV packages start at $29.95 a month.
GUdTV now offers more than 250 video and music channels in its lineup, including 30 high definition channels, 57 premium channels, Video On Demand, and pay-per-view programs.
