best cable TV- Philippines

What is the best Cable TV coverage? For the "Province" ?
English speaking/ Music / Sport/ News (Australian Channel's preferably & of course other's)

Thanks: Slim :)

Nowadays - a better question is "Best Internet Service". It is easy to live-stream UK TV (an other English speaking networks) just as long as your internet connect is at least 1.5Mbps. When living in Negros I achieved this 80% of the time simply hooking-up my Globe SIM to my laptop - to my TV (unlimited data package obviously!!!)

TV services, like the internet much depend on locality and cannot be easily assessed in 'general' terms...

We watch concerts, movies, etc. using our Globe internet connection. (Pole mounted antenna outside the house). Locality is indeed key as proximity to the cell tower and the condition of their equipment and tilt of their antennas makes a difference in signal strength and speed. We have had one equipment related issue in approx. 3 years during the conversion from Wi-Fi to LTE.  2 day repair time.

We have Cignal satellite TV and have had no equipment related problems in 3 years. Heavy rain affects the signal at times.

Yes, Cignal is definitely very good/sharp and the 'go to' satellite TV provider. Of course the laws of physics will dictate how it works (or not) in a storm - but Cignal does a pretty good job coping for sure :)

When we lived on the beach on Negros we needed to renew the Globe equipment outside - but wow, what a difference that made (like you moving up to LTE). Surprisingly reliable considering we lived in a very remote area.

...And considering 20 years ago you would have been very fortunate to have mains electricity! We are a fussy lot now aren't we - haha ;)

It's challenging when you live in an Isolated area. So having some English speaking news  content of the world is awesome. I like music and different types of music on cable would be great also.

Hello Slim
I think the best tv cable for the province here is cignal ,since most of my friends in the province use it most that skycable and also my pinoy family in bicol cantanduanese like to use it because they believe works much more better there than skycable,thats what i see it ,that Cignal works better in the province.

Thanks for your Information :)
what is the best Internet provider in the province do you think???

I think its tattoo but some use pocket wifi and others use pldt

I think Cignal is very good. (Except in heavy Rain).
We have a Prepaid account. So we don't pay when we are not in the Philippines. It costs about 600 Pesos a Month for the HD service.
