Bacolod City is indeed moving forward to progress. Last September 1, Sky Cable Bacolod has started offering their digital cable TV service to their subscribers. But it was only formally launched today, September 5, 2012 in a luncheon at the 21 Bar and Restaurant.

The event was well-attended by members of the media–print, radio, TV, and of course, the internet.

I think this is a great service to the people of Bacolod who want clearer signal and more control over their TV viewing. At home, we will have the prepaid cable TV service because honestly, we don’t have that much time to watch TV. The digital cable TV service is still not available for pre-paid so those who want to avail of this will have to shift to monthly subscription plans, as follows:

Plan 280. With 20 must-have channels and 7 Sky Cable exclusive channels.
Plan 399. With 20 must-have channels, 7 Sky Cable exclusive channels, and HBO.
Plan 499. With 50+ channels, 7 Sky Cable exclusive programming and three movie channels, namely HBO, Cinema One, and Star Movies.
Plan 780 (Silver). With 70+ channels, 14 Sky Cable exclusive channels.
Plan 1050 (Gold). With 80+ channels, 14 Sky Cable exclusive channels.

The Digital Cable TV service is still on its Phase 1 development, which covers the northern part of Bacolod City up to Talisay City. Hopefully in November, more areas of Bacolod will already be covered.
