AMBS of Manny Villar is taking initial steps for its launch

Advanced Media Broadcasting System Inc. or AMBS, the television network of business tycoon Manny Villar has started the test broadcast.

Villar was able to acquire the frequencies formerly occupied by ABS-CBN. The Kapamilya network was ordered to shut down by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) two years ago.

In January this year, NTC handed over to AMBS the Channel 2 frequency. Based on the article in PEP, the network has started the test broadcast. On June 25, the Facebook Page of Wowowin, hosted by Willie Revillame, shared a photo of TV color bars.

ambs2 TEST BROADCAST” was written on the upper left side of the photo. A 30-second video which appeared to be the station ID of the TV network of Manny Villar circulated on social media.

In the video, the voice over stated: “Sama-sama sa pagbagon. Sama-sama sa pag-angat. AMBS, Kasama ng bawat Pilipino.”

To recall, Kuya Wil has decided not to renew his contract with GMA-7 because of the talks between him and Villar regarding the new network. Rumor has it that the veteran TV host will hold an executive position in the new television station.

When the host and the businessman met last month, it was said that they already started planning for the network’s launch. Aside from Willie Revillame, it was also rumored that actress-host Toni Gonzaga will be part of AMBS.

Veteran showbiz reporter Cristy Fermin said last May that the wife of award-winning director Paul Soriano will have two shows on Villar’s network. Previously, it was rumored that Toni will also hold an executive position and it was even alleged that she will be like the Charo Santo of AMBS.
