    Saw this in another board which I frequent.

    News floating around is that SkyCable won't be carrying the ff. channels on its roster starting 2008:

    1. BTV
    2. ETC
    3. ETC 2nd Avenue
    4. Solar Sports
    5. Jack TV

    The reason being given is that not enough cable tv subscribers watch these channels anyway. Can anyone confirm if this is true? If it is, it really sucks because we'll probably miss half of the NBA season. It's just like what happened years ago when Star TV pulled out from SkyCable and along with it went ESPN, Star Sports, Star TV and Star Movies.

    That's complete bull.

    My significant other and my Mom watch ETC quite often... and I know a hell of a lot of guys who watch nothing but Solar Sports and Jack.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Wag naman sana. Sa jacktv lang ako nakakanood ng wwf e and yung mga hidden camera shows.

    Tama si 170kphlang, kung tatanggalin man, dapat bawasan yung singil.

    Sana rumor lang yan.

    tsk tsk tsk,, seems like totoo ito. i just confirmed it sa friend ng anak ng

    owner ng Destiny Cable (haha magulo ba?) according to the son of the

    owner, they now own the exclusive rights to the Solar group of channels

    (inc. Solar Sports, BTV, ETC, 2nd Avenue, JackTV) One of the reasons daw

    kaya lilipat yung Solar is apparently due to SKYCable's (owned by ABS-CBN)

    poaching of Pacman's fights from Solar Sports. Again, this is not 100% sure,

    naikwento lang ngayon sa akin ng friend ko.

    Just an observation. If the pullout is being initiated by Solar, they're not exactly doing themselves a favor. Sky has more subscribers than destiny and they cover most of the viewership in Metro Manila. Solar's probably hedging on migration of Sky subscribers en masse to Destiny. :nono:

No more BTV on SkyCable in 2008?
