ON hold ang pormal na pagpasok ng ABS-CBN sa TV5 bilang minority shareholder.

Ito ang napagdesisyunan ng mga opisyales ng dalawang network matapos kwestiyunin ng ilang kongresista at ng National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) ang pagsasanib-pwersa.

Sa isang joint statement ng ABS-CBN at TV5 na ipinadala sa media kahapon, sinabi nila na: “To address the issues which have been raised by certain legislators and the National Telecommunications Commission on the proposed investment by ABS-CBN for a minority interest in TV5, ABS-CBN and TV5 have agreed to a pause in their closing preparations.

“This pause will give the space for both media organizations to respond to the issues, and accommodate any relevant changes to the terms.

“Both ABS-CBN and TV5 believe that an agreement between the two media companies will have a favorable impact on Philippine media, and on free-to-air television — which remains the most affordable and extensive source of entertainment and public service to Filipinos.”
