ABS-CBN TVplus in Cagayan de Oro (ISDB-T)

The ABS-CBN TV network broadcast in digital (ISDB-T) in Cagayan de Oro and the frequency is 533.143 MHz (UHF 24) which can be seen at 0:24. No idea if this frequency is temporary or permanent because in the Philippines analog TV transmission is scheduled to be shut down around 2020. The signal of digital is good enough that I don't have to put the antenna outside the house. I placed the antenna on top of the cabinet which can be seen at the end of the video. The picture is clear completely free from snow and ghosting common in analog reception. ABS-CBN & ABS-CBN Sports+Action are not encrypted which means if your TV has a built-in ISDB-T tuner it can receive the signal. Other channels shown in this video like Knowledge Channel, DZMM, Cine Mo! Yey! & KBO are encrypted and are exclusive to ABS-CBN TV Plus. In Manila most TV networks are already broadcasting in digital and they are receivable using the ABS-CBN TV Plus box. But in Cagayan de Oro when I scanned the signal last 05/31/2016 only channels from ABS-CBN are receivable (seven excluding 1seg because I didn't turn it on). The rest of the networks are still in analog so I'm not gonna disconnect my antenna from analog receiver yet to receive other networks. I'm gonna re-scan the ABS-CBN TV Plus box from time to time hoping that other networks eventually broadcast in digital in my area sometime in the future. Video footage courtesy ABS-CBN
