GMA Network’s second free-to-air channel, GTV is now the second most-watched channel in the country.
Based on November to Dec. 11, 2021 data from Nielsen Phils., GTV recorded a total day people audience share of 11.3 percent in Total Philippines.
GTV’s closest competitors TV5 and A2Z only registered 10.5 percent and 4.1 percent people audience shares, respectively.
The Kapuso Network’s main free-to-air channel, GMA, meanwhile, remains strong in the top spot with a dominant 41.5 percent people audience share. Aside from continuously improving its content, GTV’s ratings success was also a result of the network’s ongoing efforts to expand GTV’s reach and clarity of reception in areas outside of Mega Manila.
Following GTV’s launch in February, the network has already commissioned six analog TV station upgrades in different parts of the country – Tandang Sora in Manila, Mt. Sto. Tomas in Benguet, Mt. Banoy in Batangas, Naga in Camarines Sur, Legazpi in Albay, and just recently, General Santos City in Mindanao.
Viewers can also expect that more areas will be added to this growing list of upgrades by 2022 as GMA further strengthens its digital terrestrial television (DTT) roll-out through transmitter upgrades.
GTV’s programming line-up consists of world-class news and public affairs as well as entertainment shows, which cater to both the young and young-at-heart. It also offers a variety of foreign dramas as well as local and Hollywood films on movie blocks Siesta Fiesta Movies, Afternoon Movie Break, and G! Flicks.
Sports fans should watch out for the next season of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) on GTV.
