    ABS-CBN Is the best of all tv station in philippines

    • gijhay says:

      yeah its true that Abs-cbn is the best, largest and the most profitting TV network in our country. Nobody can claim that titles from them. Eventhough GMA always said that they’re the NO.1 but its not true. Deep down in the Kapuso network knows who’s the undisputed no.1 TV network in our country.
      So, go Kapamilya!

    Yes, I agree ABS-CBN is the best TV Network in the Philippines when it comes to assets,talented artists and also best when it comes to social responsibility. No doubt, it the number 1 Network in the Philippines because they have artist that are more popular compared to the other networks…

  8. jaida tary says:

    shut up guys.hindi pa nag exist ang maging number 1

  9. suzeth says:

    abs-cbn has the largest & widest coverage so far & it’s true. but SOME of the best news anchors & reporters r on gma 5 & it’s true. try to be sensitive on how do they make news & u will realize the big difference! for me, being number 1 not is on tv network but it’s on the best anchors & best reporters who have given pride to the network they’ve work hard for.

    para sa akin kahit maraming nanood ng GMA sa Metro Manila mas marami parin ang ABS-CBN dahil Meron namang visayas at mindanao na nakatotok sa ABS-CBN at meron pa sa ibang bansa

  11. Hunter says:

    ABS talaga ang no. 1….karamihan ng mga endorsers ngaun mga kapamilya stars at ung mga movies na talagang nagbox office hit galing sa star cinema na alam nman ntin na kapamilya network ang may ari…its not about the ratings, kasi madaling gumawa ng ratings e hndi kgaya pag bnbli ung produkto o pag bnbyaran ung tickets s sinehan…un n lng pagbasehan nyo kung cno ung mas tinatangkilik un talaga ang NUMBER ONE!

  12. shenna DELLERA ^^ says:

  13. jenny says:

    YES! ISN’T TRUE THAT abs-cbn IS THE LARGEST AND 1ST TV STATION IN THE PHILS. But hindi natin maitatangi na mas magaling ang GMA pagdating sa mga updated news at napakahusay ang news reporter nila esp. the tv anchors.. for me d best ang GMA7. #solidkapusopoako! 🙂 PEACE!

    tanong ko lang:
    anong station ang may pinaka sikat na artists,movies,at shows?…and when i say sikat ung tipong naaalala kahit tapos na ung shows nila,ung movie at ung artists mismo…?…so ano nga ba?
    cno ang may pinaka sikat na loveteams na mas bumebenta sa tv,sino ang may tv dramas na super ganda?
    ang sagot jan,no doubt sya ang pinaka!
    yan ang basehan ng # 1!!!

    ABS CBN focuses on entertainment while GMA gives importance on news and correspondence. The best station depends on an individual’s preference. It’s not anyone’s fault that his/her opinion is different from all of us. Let’s respect each other’s individuality and each station’s field of specialty. 🙂
