Here is the live streaming video of the House hearing for ABS-CBN franchise application scheduled on July 9, 2020.
The Philippine Congress had made 12 hearings which lasted over a month where Representatives tackled the network’s franchise application.
ABS-CBN is considered as one of the TV network giants in the Philippines which presently needs an approved franchise from the Philippine Congress in order for them to operate for another 25 years where they can use the country’s airwaves and broadcast their programs.
According to the said network, there are around 11,000 of its employees that may lose their jobs if they’re not able to obtain a franchise approval.
Currently, ABS-CBN’s stopped its broadcast in the Philippines airwaves as well as in Sky Cable and on their TV Plus Black Box after they received a Cease and Desist Order from the National Telecommunication Commission.
