The month of August brings televiewers to a whole new television experience with Cignal TV & TV5!
Yes, the country’s leading pay-TV provider, Cignal TV, is partnering with free-to-air television network TV5 to offer some of the best entertainment programs while adapting to the new normal way of living.
“TV5 is known to bring the best content on sports and news. Collaborating with Cignal will allow us to strengthen our program offerings,” says Cignal TV & TV5 Pres. and CEO Robert Galang.
With Cignal TV’s 2.5 million subscribers and nationwide reach, combined with TV5’s innovative and creative expertise, the partnership aims to bring Filipinos together through meaningful, relatable programs that will elevate the home viewing experience.
Coming to the television screens starting August 15, 2020 (Saturday) is the first wave of TV5’s entertainment programs. It starts off with highly anticipated back-to-back game shows headlined by some of the country’s top hosts and comedians; and will be followed by lifestyle programs to spruce up your mornings and way of life!
Bawal na Game Show (BNGS) is the comic relief that we need now, as it pokes lighthearted fun at our current situation. Hosted by talented and well-loved comedians Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros, the game show revolves around being told what you can’t do (ie. bawal tumawa, bawal gumalaw) in order to win!
Wally and Paolo—as twins Bebe Gurl and Barby Gurl, respectively—will present challenges to the contestants, but they will also distract and goad the players to break the rules. The last pair standing will take home the grand prize of Php100,000. The show will air every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday following its pilot episode on August 15!
Fill in the Bank is the newest game show that gives contestants a chance of winning up to Php150,000 in every episode, while keeping viewers entertained. It will be hosted by star comedians Jose Manalo and Pokwang.
The hosts will likewise take on a fictional character: Jose as Chief Echoserong Officer (CEO) “Manedyer Jose” and Pokwang as Chismosang Falakang Officer (CFO) “Madam Poke.” They and the rest of the show are set to tickle the funny bones on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings!
Both Bawal na Game Show and Fill in the Bank will premiere on August 15 (Saturday) from 6:00 – 8:00 PM! Fill in the Bank will air every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 PM after it premieres; while Bawal na Game Show remains on the 7:30 PM time slot, but airing every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Coming on the heels of the game shows is Bangon Talentadong Pinoy, which puts the spotlight on the diversity and ingenuity of Filipino talent. It boasts of the total cash prize of P2.8 million, in which a larger number of contestants can win anywhere from P2,000 to P5,000 to P50,000 and even up to P250,000!
Ryan Agoncillo returns to TV5 to host the reboot of the iconic Talentadong Pinoy. Now known as Bangon Talentadong Pinoy, the much-awaited TV show will make its comeback on August 15 (Saturday), 8:00 PM and will air every Saturdays on the same time slot in TV5.
