A new age has dawned upon ABS-CBN as it launched Kapamilya Online Live on Saturday, August 1, which brings its biggest programs online for free.
Streaming live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s Facebook and YouTube accounts, Kapamilya Online Live is the network's newest platform to deliver its popular programs such as FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, It’s Showtime, A Soldier’s Heart, Magandang Buhay, ASAP Natin ‘To, Love Thy Woman, Paano Kita Mapasasalamatan, and Iba Yan, to the Filipino audience.
It can be recalled that the media giant was denied a new franchise by the House committee on July 10, shutting down the network’s broadcast operations on television and radio.
Kapamilya Online Live will be the new home of the network’s programs.

From broadcast to live streaming, this is a new journey and a first for ABS-CBN as we make a digital pivot with Kapamilya Online Live, the newest home of our well-loved Kapamilya shows that the Filipinos miss," ABS-CBN's Chief Operating Officer for Broadcast Cory Vidanes remarked during the online trade launch of Kapamilya Online Live.
ABS-CBN Chairman Mark Lopez said that amid the challenges that the network is facing, they continue to find ways to bring its service to the Filipino people.
"As we move forward from the challenges we face, isa lang po ang pinakaimportanteng guide ng ABS-CBN, that is despite the odds, we continue to find ways to serve the Filipinos. Tuloy lang ang serbisyo para sa bayan at sa ating mga kababayan. We will work harder, strive better," he stated.
Kapamilya stars Gary Valenciano, Robi Domingo, Bianca Gonzalez, Angel Locsin, Vice Ganda, and Jodi Sta. Maria, among others, joined the online trade launch on Saturday.
Gary expressed his admiration for the leaders of ABS-CBN for finding innovative ways to bring its service to the Filipinos.
"I want to salute the leadership, gumawa sila ng paraan para sa ganoon hindi lang ang mga artista at nagtatrabaho sa ABS-CBN will be helped, but pati na rin ang mga advertisers," Gary remarked.
