Satelite TV provider, Cignal, has just reached a total subscriber base of 500,000 nationwide. The subscription-based Direct-To-Home (DTH) TV provider has been around since 2009.
Cignal was among the first subscription-based TV services utilizing satellite delivery. The service is even more popular in areas (especially remote locations) where traditional cable TV cannot access.
Cignal Digital TV uses the DVB-S2 digital television broadcast standard to accommodate both Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) TV broadcasts. They currently have around 20 HD channels on top of the hundreds of other SD channels and about a dozen AM and FM radio channels.
The Cignal Kit costs a one-time fee of Php2,990 for prepaid subscribers with a monthly load fee of Php290. More details of the postpaid and prepaid plans here.
