3 Primetime Bida Shows You Can Watch on WeTV
Thanks to a multi-year deal between ABS-CBN and WeTV, three Primetime Bida shows will premiere on the streamer before local broadcast
WeTV, iflix, and ABS-CBN Entertainment have struck a multi-year partnership together, allowing three Primetime Bida series to stream on the platform before airing on TV.
The partnership is part of WeTV and iflix’s major content push for 2021, delivering topnotch content to its users ahead of other platforms.
“One of our main goals for this year has been to give our users the power of choice when it comes to their entertainment, especially now that we are spending more time at home. Bringing excellent local content and compelling stories to you first is a big step in that direction, and we are excited to have ABS CBN as our partner in this endeavor,” says WeTV and iflix Country Manager for the Philippines, Georgette Tengco. “We look forward to delivering more of the Primetime Bida shows in the years ahead, so do watch out for that.”
The first salvo of shows in this game-changing partnership includes the long-running fan favorite FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, and two new dramas: Huwag Kang Mangamba and Init Sa Magdamag, available to stream starting March 20. In keeping with ABS-CBN’s legacy of compelling stories coupled with powerful performances, these three shows are certain to appeal to Filipino fans. WeTV and iflix users will be able to stream these series up to two days before they air on local TV.
Leading the pack is the highly popular FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, topbilled by Coco Martin, which is now on its sixth year and is one of the longest-running ABS-CBN teleseryes, following Cardo Dalisay as he stands for what is true and just to protect his family and community.
For those looking for an uplifting story during these challenging times, the new inspiring series Huwag Kang Mangamba is most timely. The show’s cast is led by love teams Andrea Brillantes and Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri, also known as the Gold Squad, joined by a strong supporting cast that includes Sylvia Sanchez, Eula Valdes, Diether Ocampo and Enchong Dee, among others. Set in the fictional town of Hermoso, the story revolves around two girls who die in separate incidents but are miraculously brought back to life. This second lease on life leads to more miracles, and becomes a catalyst for a spiritual revival through the town as they rebuild the old church.
Just in time for summer, the sizzling new ABS-CBN Primetime Bida series Init Sa Magdamag premieres on WeTV and iflix VIP on April 17. Gerald Anderson, JM De Guzman, and Yam Concepcion are the major players in a love triangle that is marked not only by love, but by passion, betrayal, and a sense of family.
To stream these shows—as well as the very best in premium Asian and Filipino content—download the WeTV app, available on the App Store and Google Play.
