You are to subscribe to their service offerings and receive channel programs in high definition clarity.
Cgnal has the same service line up as with a Cable and Satellite TV. The only difference is that it broadcasts in 1080i 16:9 aspect ratio resolution signal. Also, it uses a satellite dish to utilize what is called nationwide direct-to-home transmission. Therefore you can enjoy your programs in full High definition clarity. This technology offer is a first in the Philippines. Cable TV services dominated by Sky Cable and Destiny Cable are the more popular choice of the public when it comes to paid TV subscriptions. I don’t think these cable companies can broadcast HD signals since most of the facilities here are in analog mode.
For first time subscribers, you have to purchase the equipment (P1,500) for you to avail the service. Then simply purchase prepaid cards (P390) for you to view the channels. Yes Cgnal does not offer postpaid plans for subscribers, another plus if you are on a tight budget but still wants to view programs in high definition.
When I called up the company hot line, I learned that Cignal’s main headquarters is located in SBMA Olongapo City Zambales. It also caters to subscribers in Metro Manila and other provinces near Zambales.
So if you are an owner of a High Definition LCD TV, then you can optimize your viewing pleasures with Cignal HD Digital Satellite TV serivce.
Some of the basic Channels Offered By Cignal:
- Discovery Channle HD
- national Geographic HD
