GMA International, which manages the operations and distribution of GMA Network’s international channels abroad, continues to expand its presence further across the globe.

“As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we continue to uphold our commitment to bring quality Kapuso programming to a wider audience,” expresses GMA First Vice President and Head of International Operations Joseph T. Francia.

For the first time since the launch of first two flagship international channels GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV, GMA News TV International is now within reach of Filipinos in the United States.

Since July 1, subscribers of Charter Spectrum TV all over the United States have been able to watch and enjoy their favorite Kapuso entertainment and news programs through GMA’s three international channels.

Charter Spectrum TV is a leading broadband communications company and the fourth largest cable operator in the US, which provides a full range of advanced broadband services all throughout the country.

While GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV have been available in the US since 2005 and 2007, respectively, this year marks the first time that GMA News TV International will be available for all Kapuso fans in the United States.

According to Allan Singer, Charter Communications Senior Vice President for Programming, “Spectrum TV offers a wide array of diverse, quality content that touches many cultures, and we are pleased to bring GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International to our customers in these communities, and more will follow.”

GMA’s international channels offer a diverse menu of Kapuso programs which Filipinos abroad will surely enjoy. Regular Kapuso shows in the Philippines can be watched from GMA Pinoy TV, and lifestyle programs can be followed through GMA Life TV. Meanwhile, GMA News TV International serves up the latest news straight from the Philippines and delivered to the viewers without much delay.

Aside from the US launch, GMA’s flagship international channels have already been widely available in other parts of the world.

PCCW recently carried GMA News TV International and brought it to Filipino viewers in Hong Kong beginning June 2, 2015.

GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International will also soon be available on LycaTV to cater to Kapuso fans in Europe.
