Biz Buzz update on the SkyCable-Solar issue with SkyCable's counter-allegations:

ABS-CBN doesn’t buy Solar’s line regarding their cable TV channel dispute. According to the camp of the Lopez family-owned firm, ABS-CBN has not been remiss in paying the licensing fees to the NBA, which include the carriage on SkyCable since it entered into an agreement with Solar as a co-licensee for the airing of NBA programs in 2014. And just like its subscribers, SkyCable was caught by surprise when Solar pulled out the feed of Basketball TV and NBA Premium TV during the Holy Week.

ABS-CBN and SkyCable had been in the middle of discussions with Solar on its demand for payment for its carriage of NBA games when it happened, according to the pro-ABS-CBN grapevine.

Solar, they allege, timed the cable channel disruption when subscribers were looking forward to watching the NBA Playoffs.

And, they added, when SkyCable asked Solar for an explanation or basis for the alleged unpaid carriage fees, Solar did not provide any answer. Instead, the Tieng family’s company unilaterally pulled out their basketball channels.

The SkyCable camp also says it never offered Solar any amount to settle the issue.

But here’s the plot twist: Contrary to Solar’s claims, SkyCable believes that it is actually the former that has significant outstanding debts in the millions of pesos to the latter for the other Solar channels, which are carried by the cable TV service provider.

And despite being portrayed as the bad guy in the issue, SkyCable’s guys say they continue to reach out and remains open to come to terms with their “valuable partner” with the best interest of subscribers in mind. —DAXIM L. LUCAS

The writer is certainly doing a pretty good job at fanning the flames of this issue. :) I don't understand the claim though that it's Solar who owes SkyCable money if Solar is the channel or content provider and SkyCable is the one carrying the channels or content.

Anyway, maybe Solar will come up with a response next week. Or not. :)
Hope lies in rebellion.

Kapal muks nang Sky. Now Fox Sports SD will also be removed from the lineup after May 19. Dagdag bayad after as ala carte. Kapal! Boycott!

I will simply await my subscription contract with Sky to end. No more renewal. 

Since I am not always glued to the TV and very few channels are really worth watching at all (TBH, even some  HD channels have garbage content), I won't miss the service if terminated for good.

Im with everyone regarding this issue with Solar sports. But we dont have any other options. In our place the only other option is Cignal which i have during the rainy season.

Wala na? May mga nakausap kasi ako na ahente ng Cignal, syempre yun unang tanong ko. Sabi naman meron. I think brader subscriber ka nila, e mas maniniwala ako sayo. Matingan nga uli lineup nila. Thanks sa heads up.
