Various Kapamilya artists took to social media to express their frustration after the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) ordered the shutdown of ABS-CBN’s digital broadcast on TVPlus in Metro Manila and SKY’s satellite broadcast nationwide.
NTC served 2 cease-and-desist orders to ABS-CBN on Tuesday, June 30, stopping its digital TV transmission in Metro Manila via Channel 43 (644-650 mhz) and halting the SKY direct-to-home satellite transmission of the network's cable company Sky Cable Corporation.
Here are the reactions of some of the Kapamilya stars:
No words for these heartless people #ABSCBNFranchise— Liza Soberano (@lizasoberano) June 30, 2020
How come there’s so much time being spent on bringing ABS-CBN down but little to no time figuring out ways to help our kababayans who are struggling during this pandemic, kasi naka GCQ parin tayo?????— Liza Soberano (@lizasoberano) June 30, 2020

Gusto po talaga nila tayo mawalan ng trabaho. Anona? Bigyan niyo kami ng mga katrabaho ko ng ayuda ha. https://t.co/IrdI7Ye9Bs— Gretchen Ho (@gretchenho) June 30, 2020
Wala na kapwa kapwa tao? Bahala nalang sila sa buhay nila??? Hindi na iniisip ang mga taong mawawalan ng trabaho na pwedeng magutom ang mga pamilya?? Baket ngayon pa lahat kailangang gawin ito sa gitna ng crisis... KAPWA PILIPINO PINAHIHIRAPAN NINYO. https://t.co/by4o34TplF— karla estrada (@Estrada21Karla) June 30, 2020

1. This is taking away (yet again) people’s choice of what they want to watch during a time when entertainment & information are needed.— Anne Curtis-Smith (@annecurtissmith) June 30, 2020
And most importantly -
2. This is taking away (yet again) jobs of citizens, at a time when finding another job is impossible! #IbalikAngABSCBN pic.twitter.com/FDIdLcNSSN
