Gadget Review: ABS-CBN TVplus

You may have seen the commercials about this “magical black box” that’s supposed to change the way you watch your TV, but what is ABS-CBN TVplus exactly?  Well, I bought one to find out and here’s my review.

ABS-CBN TVplus

In the era of internet and widescreen digital smart TVs, over-the-air (OTA) TV broadcasts in the Philippines still remain in the analog 4:3 format.  While analog broadcasts still do work well, their quality isn’t always the best.  The source is low resolution compared to digital broadcasts and signal isn’t always great so even if you have the most expensive and advanced TV money can buy, analog OTA TV is your last resort.  ABS-CBN TVplus is supposed to make TV watching much more pleasant by making pictures much clearer.

Digital broadcasts has been around in the country for many years now but the standards (ISDB-T) had not been defined by National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) until the middle of 2010 so unless your digital TV (DTV) is sold recently, chances are it’s incompatible and is using the former DVB-T standards the broadcasters used before the announcement.  Analog broadcasts are supposed to end by the end of this year (11:59PM December 31, 2015) but it seems that it has been postponed to 2020.  So the closest thing we currently have to DTV would be though the ABS-CBN TVplus.

The supplied remote

ABS-CBN TVplus is actually a DTV receiver and a really simple box.  You just attach your antenna (labelled “ANT IN”) and connect the supplied RCA cables to your TV.  There’s also a USB port in the front but it’s currently only used for software updates.  Speaking of which, software updates are normally received OTA.  I’ve managed to receive an OTA software update on my initial use of ABS-CBN TVplus and I was actually surprised how fast it was!  No internet connection or Wi-Fi required.

Back view of the unit

I got my ABS-CBN TVplus from an appliance center and the sales person was very honest on what it can and cannot do.  I admit I was a little disappointed with the quality as when I think of DTV I immediately think HD and the output of ABS-CBN TVplus clearly is not, but I still got one otherwise because OTA TV signal on our ground floor was not good so we’re missing some channels, ABS-CBN in particular.  Compared to using just an antenna, ABS-CBN TVplus really does receive OTA TV signals much better so the missing channels were back, but there are also channels that I also lost!

ABS-CBN TVplus booting screen after being turned on…

Here are the channels that I can receive in north Quezon City with our ABS-CBN TVplus (in order of appearance):

Settings menu

Default output is 4:3

  1. ABS-CBN
  2. SPORTS+ACTION
  3. CINE MO!
  4. YEY!
  5. Knowledge Channel
  6. DZMM Teleradyo
  7. TVplus Xtra Channel
  8. GMA
  9. GMA NEWS TV
  10. Service HD
  11. BEAM SD 1
  12. BEAM SD 2
  13. BEAM SD 3
  14. UNTV-1
  15. UNTV-2
  16. ADDTV
  17. TV5
  18. AKSYON TV
  19. TV5 OneSeg
  20. CATSUP
  21. TEST CHANNEL

Notice that the stations do not appear as they do typically (i.e., 2 for ABS-CBN, 5 for TV5, 7 for GMA, etc.) and there are channels that you don’t receive OTA.  Interestingly, I was only able to receive some of these channels after texting a keyword to a specific number (as shown on screen) using the supplied ABS-CBN Mobile.  Looking back at the list closely, did you notice the missing channels?  Those that I’m missing are:

  • NBN
  • CNN Philippines
  • IBC
  • Most of the UHF channels (21 and above)

I retried a few times to do a full scan but I really was not able to successfully receive these stations.  I even used our roof antenna to no avail.  One probable reason is that these channels are not yet broadcasting in the DTV frequency, or those that do are not in range.

Scanning for channels…

According to Wikipedia, we currently have these DTV stations available OTA:

  • ABS-CBN
  • UNTV
  • PTV
  • TV5
  • GMA
  • Eagle Broadcasting Corp. (NET25)
  • BEAM
  • SEC
  • SMNI
  • Hope Channel

Good thing about DTV is that you have info on what you are watching (if supplied by the broadcaster)

You also have a built-in program guide per channel per day (broadcaster supplied)

Since there are redundant channels, you may skip some by making a list of favorites

Software updates are provided OTA; internet connection not required

Summary

When it comes to the promise of delivering clearer pictures, ABS-CBN TVplus really delivered.  I got ABS-CBN clearly with just the supplied antenna whereas I wasn’t able to before using this device.  In fact, all the stations that it was able to receive was much clearer than the just the OTA analog reception.  But like any OTA signals, it may still suffer from poor reception.  When it does, you may expect the picture to freeze or sometimes have that sharp squeaky sound like you’re watching a scratched DVD or VCD.  The supplied antenna is pretty good but it can only do so much with whatever signal it receives.

Pros:

  • Clearer picture quality over analog OTA broadcasts
  • Relatively inexpensive (SRP ₱2,500) with no recurring costs (aside from electricity of course)
  • Supplied antenna is compact but good and comes with a long cable (5 meters) and has a base made of magnet for easy and fixed placement on metal surfaces
  • Additional free and exclusive channels
  • OTA software update

Cons:

  • “Missing” channels
  • Output is not optimized for modern TVs (still 4:3 by default and not HD)
  • Audio volume on the softer side
  • Box gets a bit hot during operation
  • Box is inoperable without remote

ABS-CBN TVplus in action.  It is compact enough to fit on the base of your LCD TVs.  The LEDs tell you that it is working and there’s another orange LED (on the right of the green one) that turns on when the device is turned off, so strangely you have all its LEDs turned on when it’s off! o_O

Overall, I could say that ABS-CBN TVplus is a good buy if OTA analog TV broadcasts is your only source, especially if your reception is a bit poor.  It has its limitations though, but it really improves on what it has.  The “missing” channels though are a bit of a letdown especially that there are good channels missing.  But you can always use your free antenna as a workaround to get these channels back (reverting to analog OTA broadcasts).  What you can’t escape though is its analog output.  You may have the most expensive and sophisticated TV but your only option to connect is through RCA cables.  Nonetheless, using it is still better than just your plain antenna.  The additional channels may be worth considering too!

ABS-CBN TVplus currently works in these areas:

  • Metro Manila
  • Nueva Ecija
  • Rizal
  • Tarlac
  • Cavite
  • Pangasinan
  • Laguna
  • Benguet
  • Bulacan
  • Metro Cebu
  • Pampanga

    Can somebody notify ABS CBN Please,,,,missing channels I beleive are not due to locations,,,,I can see 21 channels are detected during scan,,,but only default ABS CBN and TV5 channels are displayed in the actual received signals,,,I think its the box’s program problem,,,other channels are blocked…not really missing..I bought last July 9, 2015..

      Try to reset the box. Press menu>settings>installation>factory default. Then input password. The default password is four zeroes “0000” select yes and press ok in the remote control. Press menu button in remote a few times until you go back to the tv+ homescreen. Then scan again for channels by pressing the “scan” button in your remote control. Hope that helps 🙂

    With regards to clarity , there is no concern. It is really at par comparing with the analog antenna. Aside from some hang-ups and squeaky sounds , it is still bearable. Main concern is the lack of channels . I am from Laguna and we cannot access other channels especially GMA7. Available are ABS-CBN defaults and TV5. I thought it was just our area until yesterday. I was browsing the channels when I come up with GMA 7 and even their news channel. I was happy that the signal was clear. But after about 15 minutes , it hanged up. When I transfer to Channel 2 , it was clear. Then I returned again to Channel 7 and the signal was lost again. I don’t want to think that ABS-CBN had something to do with these. I believe that they should be fair with their customers . Their rivalry with the other channels are a different concern , their product here is the BLACK BOX. It was so disappointing ….

    Ironically sa akin naman baligtad, 99% malinaw ang gma pero halos di ko mapanuod ang abs at mga exclusive channels. Antipolo area here. Fyi, nag bbigay ang abs ng outdoor antenna or ung high gain antenna. Pero ganun pa din, wala yung abs cbn channels sa amin

    Gud day! How many channels fo you have. We bought TV Plus several months ago but we only have 8 channels no programs from 9 to 15. We’re always having difficulties watching our favorite shows in channel 2. M9st of the time it’s hunging and signal is lost. But getting good reception on channel 7 and 8.

    I like watching OTWOL. and I cant even watch the program beacause of the said problem.

    Thanks

  10. October 03, 2015 at 12:30AM

    Recent software update will wipe many of your channels and erase the activation status of ABS-CBN exclusive channels. To fix this, do a re-scan and text the number with the message on the screen using the supplied ABS-CBN Mobile SIM.

    Im from Laguna. Bought TV plus last Saturday and so far im happy with the results. At first installation you would notice the lagging of some channels but i tried to move the antenna to find better reception and it works. Even GMA 7 has a good reception.

    I bought my TV plus last 28 August 2015 at Automatic Center in SMDC Light. In less than 2 months nag-power off ang digital box. I contacted “ALL” that I can get my hands to so I’ll be able to have it work since it was cut when the PSY teleserye was just starting. I finally had it over to its Service Center in Pasong Tamo. My question is…when is ABS going to send stocks of TV plus adoptor to their service center? Sony service center gave me a telephone number for follow up but seems bogus…ring lang ng ring walang sumasagot???

I live in Mandaluyong area, walang TV5, net25 etc…. Ang akala ko ko, lahat ng local channels magiging malinaw….. DISAPPOINTING…. I REGRET THAT I HAVE BOUGHT IT… I DO NOT RECOMMEND>

  43. May 16, 2016 at 9:26AM

    To those experiencing no audio, do a re-SCAN of the channels. I experienced no audio as well after doing a software update. Note that you’d have to rebuild your Favorites after this.

For some that saying na bina-block daw ni tv plus ang other network such as gma and tv5 it is not true maybe yung signal lng sa area nyo or ng antenna ninyo ay mahina so you need to find a perfect place for it then try nyo ulit mag scan pwede nyo rin makita ang signal by pressing the signal button sa remote nyo pra makita nyo kung ok ang signal sa channel na hinahanap nyo.

      just wondering why abs-cbn nga ang nagproduce ng tv plus pero nwawalan ng signal sa channel 2 at nagsstop xa pag may dumadaang airplane,tas pag nililipat q sa gma ndi nman nagsstop, mas consistent ang signal ng gma7 pag nililipat q, sa gma malinaw at hindi nawawalang ng signal..kaloka abs-cbn tv plus pero mas better ang signal ng gma..tsk tsk

    Not recommending … bought mine 7 months ago for P2500 and I’m only getting 4 ABS-CBN channels .. okay lang, baka kako pang ABS lang talaga … then it stopped working. Called support, sabi dalhin ko sa service station. Sabi dun sira and antenna and I have to buy a new one for P395 yata basta almost P400. One month warranty lang daw ang antenna kasi accessory daw siya. GRRR …

    Cable subscriber kami before, wala kaming ibang antenna. Then i decided n bumili ng abs cbn tv plus. Sinunod ko naMan ang instruction on how to install the tv plus sa TV namin. Kaso, wala naman nanyari.. Blanko lang.. Sa guide may nakita ako na picture ng analog antenna, kailangan pa ba non?. Akala ko kasi TV plus lang OK na..

    Binili ko ang tv plus ko oct.22 night. Excited kami kasi gumana mga abs channels at mga exclusive channels nila like cinemo etc.. Lakas ng signal namin aabot ng 80 – 90%… Then niregister sa warranty kasama name at location (batangas) namin sa 23661… Then boom!!!! Biglang 0% ung signal namin… Parang na block ung tv plus ko… Pero ung katabing bahay at bayaw ko ilang buwan nang gamit tv box nila ok pa rin.. Pero di kasi nila inactivate ung warranty.. Pota sayang pera ko….
