terminated my SkyCable subscription already. was paying nearly 1k per month.

Savings went to 550 = netflix, 300 = upgrade in my globe plan from 1599 to 1899 50mbps plan.

I see Sky is now focus more on Broadband internet than Pay Tv.

These are actually different divisions run by different teams.

Is the NBA Dispute causes sky to stop update new channels (including HD)?
 And what's the deal with Carrier Agression? Why is SKY uses this strategy instead of agreeing extended contract with Solar for the NBA rights?

New developments, Sky has a free preview on Kids/Animation channels. And the Solar cable Channels  are now labeled Reserved. Sky had lost many channels this year since January These are:
1. Discovery Science
2. DMAX
3. EVE
4. Discovery Kids
5. Sundance Channel HD
6  Fox Sports News
7. SyFy
8. Universal Channel
9. Jack TV
10. Solar Sports
11. CT
12. BTV
13. NBA PREMIUM TV SD/HD
There are new channels added this year but on SD they are:
1.GEM TV
2. ANIPLUS
3. France 24
4. Fox Filipino
Why is SKY is now have fewer offerings on Pay TV this year and focus more on Broadband internet?

1. Discovery Science
2. DMAX
3. EVE
4. Discovery Kids
5. Sundance Channel HD
6  Fox Sports News
7. SyFy
8. Universal Channel


For the above channels, those were terminated by the content providers.
-For channels 1-4, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific did not renew the contracts for those channels for Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand
-For Channel 5, AMC Networks International terminated airing of Sundance Channel......and decided to focus on its existing AMC Asia channel.
-For channel 6, Fox Networks Asia ceased Fox Sports News for all Asian regions since April 2017 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_Sports_News_(Asia))
-For channels 7-8, NBC Universal Networks stopped airing those channels since December 2016.........although there are rumors that NBC Universal may introduce the 13th street channel and possible expand the footprint of Dreamworks TV channel to other Asian territories.

In short, it's not just a SkyCable thing.

Fox News Channel recently pulled the Plug on SkyCable. So that's makes it 13 channels loss. Also i don't think 13th Street will be available in Asia soon; we already have too much Gen. Entertainment genres right now.

I don't know why ABS CBN wants to joint venture with Solar Entertainment for the NBA rights in 2014, it clear the ABS CBN  will air the games on Free TV while Solar will air on Pay TV networks. Here's is where the mistake happens why SKY cannot pay it's fees to Solar since it is owned by ABS CBN it is clear that Sky need to pay to Solar about the NBA rights in the first place but it didn't happen. What ABS CBN are they thinking? 
Now that Solar channels is no longer in the SKY lineup, how they can improve their Business strategy in Cable TV industry? And will SKY will survive it's business without ABS CBN?

Fox News channel pulled the plug on the whole continent, not just SkyCable.

If only SKY renew Solar channels in the first place. Solar Channels expired it's contract to Sky In 2014 but why didn't renew it and still continue to Air Solar Channels? (Apart from NBA rights) This is a very slouchy idea for ABS CBN when they join NBA for their FTA rights to NBA but not renewing Solar To SKY.

Savings went to 550 = netflix, 300 = upgrade in my globe plan from 1599 to 1899 50mbps plan.

I also terminated my Skycable subscription.  I was paying P1150/month for 4 TVs and no HD channels.  I also had a problem with their aftersales service.  For the past month most of the time the channels were pixellated.  I called up Sky to check on my connections.  Nobody came  even after multiple attempts to call them.  Mom ko pa naman TV now is her life and sira ang araw if yung mga telenovelas nya disrupted because of bad signal.  Nakakainis pa yung mga personal account manager na yan.  Wala naman kwenta.  Tinatawagan mo di naman macontact.
Now I'm getting the basic P490 plan sa Cgnal but with additional 2 TVs pa amounting to P990/month.  At least maka experience na ng HD channels.

Luckily our Sky HD is stable and if ever service done within 48hours.

Our Cignal is sipunin. Slight drizzel and signal goes bad. Kids just use it to watch NBA.
Where is the Love? BEP

I am currently enjoying EDGE HD (Ch 188). Lots of 2-wheeled content (bike and moto) and other action sports. Haven't seen anything live yet but it seems to be the cable version of RedBull TV minus the documentaries.

EDGE SPORT looks like fun. Meron sya mga Rallycross events which are dope.

Available siya in both SD (Channel 218) and HD (Channel 188).

P.S.
Also, under trial broadcast ang TLC HD on Channel 243

I saw some comments on the SKYcable Facebook page. They will remove some channels from FNG as well from ABS CBN cable channels from January 1 they are:
-Fox Action Movies (SD AND HD)
-Nat Geo People (SD AND HD)
-Fox Crime (SD AND HD)
-Channel V
-Hero TV
-TAG
 
SKY is neglecting it's Cable TV business and focus more on improving their Broadband internet service. I think they remove 20+ cable channels this year due to lack of viewership or contract Dispute. I never forget what happened when Solar Entertainment pull the Plug on it's Cable channels especially NBA programs due to upaid dues. I wish Sky will revamp it's Cable tv business by changing it's management and improving their services especially in a competitive market where Online streaming services is now in a fast pace and switching to other Pay TV providers like CIGNAL.

Just want to confirm if wala na nga po ba ang mga channels na yan sa sky as of today?

Is this discontinue only apply to skycable or to all cable and satellite dish?

Baka sa Skycable lang 'to ulit. I think Cignal even continues to offer a special postpaid plan called Fox Plan 390 which has all the Fox channels.
Hope is a good thing.. maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.

Cinemax is already in the SkyCable lineup for a long time now. Also Channel 243 is locked. I don't see TLC HD For now
