GMA Network, Inc. officially inks the agreement with the Department of Education (DepEd) for the free use of its digital channel to assist in DepEd’s implementation of the blended learning program.
Putting great value in the importance of education amidst these uncertain and challenging times, GMA Network is providing nationwide airtime for DepEd TV from 7am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday, on its digital terrestrial TV (DTT) channel, Channel 7 on the GMA Affordabox.
The Memorandum of Agreement signing, held virtually recently, was led by GMA Network Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Felipe L. Gozon, President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., and Department of Education Secretary Leonor M. Briones.
“GMA Network recognizes the challenges our country faces in the middle of this pandemic and will do its part to support the country’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, while continuing to enrich the lives of Filipinos in ways that we can. It is therefore our honor and privilege to join forces with the Department of Education and provide our TV platform for free to enable our young learners access to broadcast education while keeping them safe at home,” said Gozon.
Students and parents can catch DepEd TV via Channel 7 on the GMA Affordabox beginning mid-December (on test broadcast). For more updates, visit GMA Network’s official website at www.gmanetwork.com.
