ABS-CBN’s popular and well-loved teleseryes “Halik” and “Pangako Sa’Yo” are now making waves abroad after the Kapamilya network secured deals with media networks in Tanzania and Dominican Republic to air the top-rating programs in their respective countries.
“Halik,” which won Best Acting Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 50th Box Office Entertainment Awards, has been airing in Tanzania since February after ABS-CBN forged a deal with African multimedia company, Azam Media.
Meanwhile, the “Pangako Sa’Yo” 2015 remake starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, marks a new milestone this 2018 as the first Philippine drama in the Dominican Republic that started airing in March on Color Vision Canal 9.
With the two series’ presence abroad, ABS-CBN continues to grow its international business, adding to the over 40,000 hours of content the leading media and entertainment company has sold worldwide.
Both Kapamilya teleseryes have a passionate legion of fans after captivating viewers from all walks of life.
