How to Watch Pinoy TV Shows Online – GMA 7, ABS-CBN Channel 2 and TV5


For those who are busy in their everyday work and don’t have time to watch their favorite Pinoy TV shows on time, especially for the Filipinos working abroad, don’t worry TV companies like ABS-CBN, GMA and TV 5 have provided a website where you can watch the replay or live streaming of their shows.

Filipinos out there, please don’t patronage pirated websites that post and upload Filipino TV shows without the permission of the network. Some of this pirated websites has been sued, taken down and fined due to copyright issue. I have posted an article about this in which the owner of some pirated sites ordered by the court to pay $10 million for damages resulting from his infringing the copyrights.

Another reason why you must avoid this pirated websites is that, sites owner monetize this using some ad network that collect some sensitive personal data without you knowing. These are the advertisement that pops up while you are watching. To avoid these, use only the official website which I am going to share to you.

Now, using the official websites of the big 3 TV network in the Philippines, you can watch your favorite TV shows anytime anywhere without worrying that your personal data might be in danger.

Here’s how to watch Pinoy TV shows in the official websites of three networks.
