PLDT board approved a P750-million investment in its media assets to allow the group to become a multimedia service company. Prior to that, the telco said it was investing an additional P3.6 billion to make "its media assets more visible to the shareholders of PLDT."
Pangilinan targets to complete the transaction in the next few months in preparation for the launch of TV5's all-English news channel, the CEO TV.
He said BusinessWorld would be one of the sources of business content for the CEO TV. "We need more analysis of the economic development in the country," Pangilinan said.
Media giant ABS-CBN Corp. has been investing heavily in digital terrestrial television (DTT) and cable TV, as it aims to bring clear TV viewing to millions of Filipinos.
Around 80% of households in the Philippines do not have cable TV, and majority belong to DE socioeconomic class, according to ABS-CBN DTV marketing head Miguel Mercado.
Of this number, Mercado noted only less than 52% of households receive only two channels of tolerable quality with the current analog TV transmission.

Unbeaten Floyd Mayweather and Robert Guerrero made weight Friday for their Saturday showdown for Mayweather's World Boxing Council welterweight world title.
Mayweather, returning to the ring after a year's absence that included two months in jail, weighed in at 146 pounds while Guerrero weighed in on the limit of 147.
"I'm here to do what I do best," said Mayweather, who brings a record of 43-0 with 26 knockouts to the bout. "I always control the tempo and I'll execute my game plan."
Mayweather went to jail last June for domestic violence. Since his release eight months ago, he has been working to regain the fitness needed to defend his place atop the list of boxing's moneymakers.
Fellow American Guerrero, 31-1 with 18 knockouts and a 15-fight win streak dating to 2005, insisted again that he would hand Mayweather the first defeat of his career.
"It's on," Guerrero said. "We've got to beat him down and take full advantage of him." (© 1994-2013 Agence France-Presse & abs-cbnnews.com)

Talk ‘N Text coach Norman Black said Game Two of their best-of-five Commissioner’s Cup semifinals series is like a win-or-go-home situation for them.
After absorbing a 23-point loss in the series opener of their best-of-five series versus Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, Black knows they need to play better than what they showed in Game One.
Game Two tips off at 6:15 p.m. at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum, with live broadcast over AKTV on IBC-13. The game will also be broadcast on a delayed basis starting 7:30 p.m. over TV5.
“We must play with a sense of urgency now that we’re down 1-0,” said the Tropang Texters coach.
Talk ‘N Text was totally outplayed last Friday by the Gin Kings and Black pointed to their poor shooting game as the main culprit to their downfall aside from allowing Ginebra to play its game.
“Matching Ginebra’s energy and intensity on defense will be the key,” Black said.
“Three-point shooting has been our strength this conference so we have to find a way to get better looks for our shooters.”
Ginebra shot above 50 percent (42-of-80) in Game One while Talk ‘N Text hit just 35 percent (29-of-82), including an awful 1-of-18 from the three-point zone.

Top seed Alaska and defending champion San Mig Coffee start their much-anticipated best-of-five semifinal series in the 2013 PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Saturday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
The Aces and the Mixers mix it up at 6:15 p.m. with Alaska hoping to end their losing streak to former coach Tim Cone.
Cone has an unbeaten 8-0 win-loss mark against the Aces. But more than the record, Alaska coach Luigi Trillo is more concerned over how his players perform in this crucial stage of the tournament.
“We have to find a way to play not only during our good times but when we go through some tough times also in the playoffs and we will have a couple of both those,” said Trillo, whose wards finished No. 1 in the eliminations with an impressive 11-3 mark.

MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court decision stopping the implementation of the Commission on Elections' (Comelec) airtime limits on political advertisements has not affected ABS-CBN Corp.'s ad revenues, said the company's chairman.
Speaking in a press briefing after the company's stockholders' meeting on Tuesday, April 23, ABS-CBN Chairman Eugenio Lopez III said they have felt no impact from the lifting of the Comelec rule limiting to just 120 minutes each candidate's ads in all TV stations, and 180 minutes in all radio stations.

NAKARATING kay Daniel Padilla na taga-kalabang istasyon ang mga detractor niya at nagsasalita ng against sa kanya. Pinupuna ng mga ito na hindi raw marunong kumanta at tinatawanan daw siya ng mga ito nung marinig ang kanta niya sa radio.
Umandar naman ang kataklesahan ng sikat na young actor na marahil ay bugso ng damdamin.
‘Bakit may concert ba sila sa Aranteta Coliseum (April 30)? Bakit may double platinum award ba sila?’
NAGSALITA na ang Vice-President for Corporate Communications ng ABS-CBN na si Mr. Bong R. Osorio, at ito ay with finality na hindi na makababalik sa kanila si Willie Revillame.
Hindi na raw sila kukuha nang ikasasakit ng kanilang ulo.
