    Also inside the ABS-CBN complex is the Eugenio Lopez, Jr. Communications Center (ELJCC). It is named after the late Eugenio Lopez, Jr.. It was constructed in 2000. On November 4, 2010, which would have been Geny Lopez' 82nd birthday, Pres. Noynoy Aquino and other Philippine politicians participated in the building's dedication ceremony.

ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs


    After the 1986 EDSA Revolution, the network was first to air a newscast and current affairs show, namely TV Patrol and Probe. The network's news organization suffered from credibility issues, including its alleged partiality in various political issues and the involvement of its former news anchors and network chairman in the political arena. Based on the latest Pulse Asia Survey, ABS-CBN News was the most trusted news station garnering 68 points against its rival network GMA Network, garnering 60 points.


    At present, the news organization is headed by former North America Bureau Chief Ging Reyes. Former head Maria Ressa introduced major organizational changes and reforms, including the drafting of Code of Ethics that is very much benchmarked on international standards. The new Code of Ethics served as the Bible of all the members of the news organization.


    ABS-CBN also owns the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC), a 24-hour cable news channel in the Philippines.



ABS-CBN Regional Network Group


    The ABS-CBN Regional Network Group is the provincial network of ABS-CBN. It is responsible for simultaneously airing most of the shows seen on ABS-CBN's flagship station in the provinces. The ABS-CBN Regional Network Group has several stations in each region outside Mega Manila to ensure nationwide coverage. The local stations also produce their own newscasts which air prior to TV Patrol and other local programming which air on Sundays. ABS-CBN Regional Network Group (RNG) glorified its roots while reaching out wider audience in 2007, consistently building on local content and developing infrastructure to deliver better service and cement its position as the top-rating regional network in the country. RNG's journey of innovation reached Filipinos through the network's 43 TV and 16 radio stations, and even went the extra mile to cross the oceans and touch OFW's everywhere. Regional versions of favorite TV shows were created, enabling ABS-CBN to reach out and connect with wider audiences worldwide. The launch of the local game show Kapamilya Winner Ka! in Visayas and Mindanao. Gandang Umaga, Pilipinas in Northern Luzon, and the 17th local TV Patrol in Southern Tagalog (Region IV-A & IV-B), provided more relevance to regional audiences.



Digital television


    ABS-CBN applied for a digital television-terrestrial service (DTT) license from the National Telecommunications Commission. Digital Television in the Philippines once utilized the DVB-T standard utilized in most of Europe. The Dutch company Impeq Technologies is one of ABS-CBN's consultants in the digital transition. The network planned to also supply DTV boxes in areas where signal reception of Channel 2 is weak. Areas such as Valenzuela, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite and Laguna are the potential market for the DTV set-top boxes. The Metro Manila market will receive DWWX-TV and DWAC-TV and the company's six other cable channels on the digital platform. The National Telecommunications Commission will be giving television broadcast companies until December 31, 2015, to fully convert from analog to digital technology, in line with the worldwide shift towards the use of DTT in broadcasting.


    The network is expected to spend ₱1 billion a year for Digital TV in the next five years to cover a big part of the country. Tracing back the network's history on digital TV, the company was slated to begin broadcasting digital television last January 2008, although it has been presumably delayed since there were no announcement during the entire month of January that the signal is now digitized. Since there is no definite standard for the Philippines, which will be chosen by the regulatory bodies, ABS-CBN still didn't officially release news about DTV. But in November 2010, ABS-CBN is expected to begin its digital broadcasting to be rolled out in 17 cities in Metro Manila, in Bulacan and in Pampanga, but this was on hold due to the instance of lacking implementation of rules and regulations.


    The National Telecommunications Commission chose Japanese DTV standard ISDB-T as the Philippines' digital TV broadcasting standard last June 11, 2010. ABS-CBN will be using UHF Channel 35 (596–602 MHz) for the ISDB-T, previously UHF Channel 51 (692–698 MHz) from their DVB-T testing.


    This 2011, ABS-CBN ups ante on ISDB-T digital broadcast as they will have its nationwide digital terrestrial television rollout, the first in the country. It will incorporate P 5 billion to implement the chosen DTV standard over the next five years. Based on some informants, ABS-CBN is currently testing its digital TV again on various subdivisions in Bulacan and Pampanga. Channels include ABS-CBN and Studio 23 including non ABS-CBN channels like Gem TV and NBN 4.


    A month before the Technical Working Group is slated to start the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) for the ISDB-T, rival station GMA Network said the government should reconsider its decision to pick the Japanese standard for the country’s switch to digital television in 2015, saying a new European standard was better. According to him, “[For] the Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting-Terrestrial ISDB-T standard [of Japan] and the old DVB standards, it can be said that either one is superior over the other in some respects. But with the DVB-T2, the difference in quality is significant. With the emergence of the DVB-T2, there is a hope that the standard chosen by the NTC will be reviewed." But still, the National Telecommunications Commission sticked with the Japanese standard ISDB-T which will now be ready to implement the rules for digital terrestrial television this coming June 2011.


    Just this April 4, ABS-CBN announced its launching of its Digital Television this year. The network also announced its intention to sell ISDB-T set top boxes, which they tagged DTV Digibox for just a price of a low-cost DVD (ranging from P1000-P3000). This includes the available digital free TV channels of ABS-CBN, Studio 23, GEM HD Channel 49 and NBN Channel 4, addendum with five new premium channels which are exclusive for digital terrestrial TV subscribers only. According to Miguel Mercado, ABS-CBN DTV Head of Marketing, viewers need not wait long because ABS-CBN is ready to launch DTV operations within the year. He said the company is just waiting for the final go-signal from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) but will market it by June or July this year. Since ISDB-T has its fixed and mobile DTV receptions, ABS-CBN also targets in 1seg capability for mobile phones and portable TV devices but for now, households with fixed TV sets will experience first the benefits of digital television.



HD and Tapeless


    On April 19, 2009, ABS-CBN announced its intention to acquire 24 Sony HDC-1400R HD portable studio cameras which cost a total of $1.56 million. ABS-CBN is upgrading its studio facility at Quezon City, north of Manila, from SD to HD.


    ABS-CBN Sports produced the first nationally produced true high definition program, which was the UAAP season 72 a test broadcast of Filipino collegiate basketball games on the network's Balls HD (SkyCable Channel 166) channel. It, along with the NCAA games can be seen on SkyCable HD. This marked the first live HD broadcast of a locally produced program in Philippine television history.


    In the early 2008, ABS-CBN is the first media company in Asia that recognized the Tapeless Technology that provided the company a 100% non-linear post production workflow and wireless access on remote areas via media access management system. ABS-CBN also uses its 3 Sky Patrol Eurocopter AS355 news chopper fleet for live breaking news, 2 of the news helicopters are capable of transmitting HD live feed from its 5 axis gimbal HD Camera mounted on the nose of the aircraft.
