A YEAR after reuniting Filipinos with Cardo Dalisay, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” and other well-loved shows, ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Channel continues to bring entertainment, hope, and inspiration to Filipinos as it airs exciting new offerings to celebrate its first anniversary.

On top of long-running Pinoy favorites such as “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” “MMK,” “It’s Showtime,” and “ASAP Natin ‘To,” Kapamilya Channel boosts its lineup this June by launching Vice Ganda’s new singing game show, Erich Gonzales’ revenge drama, Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano’s romcom, and Joross Gamboa and Roxanne Guinoo’s reunion project.

Vice will bring fun, music, and excitement to viewers with “Everybody Sing,” the Philippines’ first community singing game show that debuts on Saturday (June 5). In each episode, the show assembles 25 players who will take on various singing challenges to win as much as P500,000 for their community.

Erich wears vengeance like a crown in “La Vida Lena,” which makes its way to Kapamilya Channel beginning June 28. The series, which first became available on the iWantTFC streaming service, follows Magda’s (Erich) transformation into Lena, a fierce and strong-willed lady who is out to get even with those who wronged her. The cast also includes JC De Vera, Kit Thompson, Carlo Aquino, Agot Isidro, Raymond Bagatsing, and Janice de Belen.

Viewers can also look forward to Joross and Roxanne’s feel-good rom-com “Hoy, Love You,” which tells the story of two single parents who unexpectedly find love. The iWantTFC original series also stars the love team of Karina Bautista and Aljon Mendoza and airs on Kapamilya Channel starting June 19 at 10 PM.

DonBelle’s highly anticipated teen rom-com “He’s Into Her,” meanwhile, made a big splash with its premiere last weekend as it topped social media trending topics and set record-breaking views for iWantTFC. The series, which will air nine more episodes every Sunday at 8:45 PM on Kapamilya Channel, follows Maxpein (Belle) and Deib (Donny)’s constant quarreling that leads to falling in love and meaningful lessons in romance, family, and friendship.

All these shows will be seen via cable and satellite TV on Kapamilya Channel (SKYchannel 8 on SD and channel 167 on HD, Cablelink channel 8, G Sat Direct TV channel 22, and most cable operator-members under Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association). Kapamilya Channel also airs fresh episodes of ABS-CBN shows “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” “Huwag Kang Mangamba,” “Init Sa Magdamag,” “Count Your Lucky Stars,” “It’s Showtime,” “MMK,” “ASAP Natin ‘To,” “Paano Kita Mapasasalamatan,” “Iba ‘Yan,” and “We Rise Together.”

Kapamilya Channel is one of the many platforms where Filipinos can enjoy their favorite shows as ABS-CBN continues to find ways to reach audiences wherever they may be. In May, ABS-CBN launched its “Andito Kami Para Sa’ Yo” plug on social media, a year after the shutdown of its broadcast operations, to reiterate its commitment to serving and providing Filipinos with entertainment through its shows on free TV, cable TV, and online.

Viewers can also watch ABS-CBN shows on TV5 and A2Z on free TV, digital TV boxes, and cable, Jeepney TV and CineMo on cable, on Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, and on streaming platforms iWantTFC, WeTV, and iflix.
