As of 2015, ABS-CBN can be watched online or on national television in the Philippines. Viewers outside of the Philippines can also view the channel’s programming on The Filipino Channel. iWantTV.com allows users to watch a live stream of the channel along with other ABS-CBN programming. TFC.tv allows access to on-demand ABS-CBN shows; however, the service does not provide a live stream to the channel. Both websites require a subscription to view ABS-CBN programming.
ABS-CBN is the longest running television network in the Philippines. The company’s television production unit originally produces most of the network’s programming. ABS-CBN offers its viewers a variety of programming, such as musical and reality shows. About 15 percent of the network’s programming line-up is imported from other countries. Occasionally, ABS-CBN produces and broadcasts television specials, such as concerts and sporting events.
In 2009, ABS-CBN began producing its programming for high-definition video quality. The technology was first introduced domestically during a basketball game and added HD to three news helicopters. In 2007, ABS-CBN also started digitizing its content and generated over 200,000 hours of television content. Its digital storage is expected to grow about 36 percent every few years, with the network generating about 700 hours of content per month.
