ABS-CBN Corp Incurred This Huge Loss from January-June 2021

Update on ABS-CBN Corp Losses Based on Financial Report

ABS-CBN CORP – The ABS-CBN Corporation faced billions of net losses in just six (6) months from January to June 2021 based on their financial report.

It is no secret to the public that things have been hard for ABS-CBN Corporation since the franchise renewal of their broadcasting network was denied. The network is not allowed to operate on free TV and many of their shows had to be canceled.

The shutting down of ABS-CBN sparked different reactions from the people. It is more than a year now since the Court decided not to allow the network, one of the biggest broadcasting networks in PH which has operated for decades already, to renew their franchise or get a new one.

ABS-CBN even allowed their talents to transfer to other networks or accept other offers as many have families to feed and bills to pay. Despite all the challenges, it remains hopeful that the light will shine again.
