Check niyo sir sa skycable website. If its not available as a bundle, you can add that channel to your list as an add on.

mga sir kaka switch lang namin sa skycable hd from destiny cable. tanong ko lang kung ano ba ang normal or acceptable signal level nito? yung connection sa main tv namin around 72% ang signal level and yung extension sa kwarto ko naman around 67% ang signal level. ok na ba yun?

Sir paano niyo na-measure yun acceptable signal?

nakita ko lang sir nung sine set-up nung technician yung hd box kahapon. press menu and then select scan channel and then select auto scan.

napansin ko kasi medyo compressed/pixelated and may artifacts yung ibang sd channel lalo na sa fox sports and btv nung nanood ako ng nba kanina. parang mas maganda pa yung picture quality before sa destiny cable box thru rca connection. yung sa hd channels ok naman pero parang di pa gaanong smooth.

Para sakin pag wala naman difference sa PQ. Di ko na papansinin yung signal level.

ok. naitanong ko lang sir para may ma compare lang sana sa picture quality. medyo di kasi ako gaanong satisfied sa pq baka kailangan may ayusin sa connection sa poste or baka sa wiring and splitters para tumaas yung signal level.

Check niyo upscaling ng tv niyo. Try niyo din toying with the video settings re smoothness. Baka you're looking for the "soap opera" effect.

Nakikita siya sa cable box menu. Generally hindi gaano reliable pag mahina na signal minsan mawawalan ng service.

Not a fan of the soap opera effect sir. Hehe. Pero baka nga din sa upscaling. Just checked with my cousin and same lang din sa amin yung nakukuha nilang signal level with their skycable hd.

No PQ issue with additional boxes basta strong enough yun feed. Their techs can ensure this.

ANSWER: 
-o- Php250/month/box (regardless what package you have)
-o- please call hotline 381-0000 for updated installation fee

ANSWER:
-o- YES pwede kahit 4 (and up) I can vouch for that kasi I have a total of 4 HB-boxes.
ang critical ay yung cable connection, digital kasi kaya ON or OFF lang, Meron o Wala (Laban o Bawi)

Today I officially cut the cord.

After being a cable subscriber for nearly 20+ years it's time.

It's been a long time coming as no one in my household watches TV on a schedule pre-determined by the broadcasters. Nowadays people prefer to watch whatever they want whenever they want.

In years past I was still quite worried if I will miss cable TV because of the lack of alternatives. Now with streaming services available here in the country like Netflix and Android TV Live channels I was able to move the budget I spent on Cable TV to improve my internet service in my house. As for local channels, there's nothing good I watch except the news so for that a set top box to get ISDB is enough as well as an AM radio for times of calamity will suffice.

I still prefer cable tv over streaming in terms of clarity and smoothness.

yung mga pinsan ko sa Canada, wala na ring cable. Mga P2000 a month din kasi ang basic cable, wala pang HBO.  :o Muntik na akong mabaliw nung nalaman ko yun kasi Game of Thrones finale pa naman!
 nag-netflix na lang sila. pero meron din silang apple tv. (hindi ko alam kung magkano yun)
tapos may outdoor antenna sila for local tv broadcasts pero HD na ang channels.
(Side note, nagulat ako kasi nakita ko yung CTV logo, sabi ko, dun pala galing ang mga torrents na nakikita ko!)  ;D

I'm almost there. I only watch Formula 1 races on cable, nothing else. YouTube on my TV and my Android TV player (aside from the occasional torrent downloads) keeps me occupied.

According to Skycable's FB page, NBA Premium and BTV  channels are out.  Did they lose their NBA license?  Kung kailan playoffs are right around the corner.

WTF is going on?

Part of the reason I subscribed to their service is to be able to watch NBA in high definition. Suddenly all we get in place of the NBA premium HD channel is the infuriatingly low-res re-broadcast of shows from ABS-CBN sports channel. Their advisory on the sudden disappearance of NBA HD channel only says: temporarily available. Until when?

The abovementioned pushes me closer to the brink of cutting SkyCable service  for good. I've paid them good money since 1991. That's a frickin' 26 years.

SkyCable sucks!  >:(

These cable providers should be held liable. Subcribers sign up for a particular channel lineup. So that caveat that channels can change should be taken out of the contract.

Asa pa sa Philippines consumer protection.
