    @Diwata1057 - not sure kung pareho ang time nang Bandila around Australia. Check mo SBS 2, yung sunod-sunod na foreign language news sa hapon, mga 2pm ang Bandila. But I think meron din pag 8am, same channel. Seen it both sa NSW and Qld, I'm sure meron din dyan.

    O ayan, di mo na ma mi-miss si kuya Boy Abunda.

    @Diwata1057 sa website po mismo ng Bandila, after two hours ng broadcast, nirerelease na nila sa website nila yung episode :)

    @JClem, lam mo balak ko diyan pakabit ako ng sky broadband sa bahay (tutal kailangan ng internet sa bahay para maka-skype ko sila)...edi solb...gamitin ko yung access code sa Australia hehe

    I was surprised nung nabasa ko na namahalan ang iba rito sa Au$35 per month na TFC subscrpition. Hindi naman sa nagyayabang, pero namurahan kami ng wife ko nung nagpakabit kami ng TFC sa $35.99 per month na billing. Siguro kasi hindi kami nagco-convert into Peso. Ugali kasi natin lalo na yung mga bagong dating sa Au e i-convert ang presyo from Au$ to PhPeso. Natural magiging mahal yung bibilhin nyo.

    Dun sa mga ayaw magpakabit ng TFC, tama si tita_vech, you can watch Bandila sa SBS2 @ 8:05 AM, pagkatapos ng Italian news. O kaya sa internet na lang manuod :)

    @LokiJr Alam ko meron ding GMA Pinoy, pero never interested kasi kahit nung nasa pinas pa kami, ABS-CBN na talaga ang pinapanuod namin. Most likely, ganun din ang presyo siguro. Kung bagong dating ka dito sa Aus, mamamahalan ka talaga dahil di mo maiiwasan ang mag convert into PhP. Pero kapag medyo tumagal ka na e masasanay ka na rin sa presyo.

    @johnandjosh, hehe pareho tayo...yung laban lang ni Pacquiao yung inaabangan ng pamilya namin sa GMA hehe, most of the time nagllive stream na lang din kami ng laban niya hehe.

    Pero kung ABS shows lang, baka magsubscribe na lang ako ng Bayantel or Sky Cable sa Pinas para magamit ko yung iwanttv nila hehe (that or youtube nga hehe)

    $15 matitiis ko pa...standard rate yan ng subscriptions kahit sa U.S. e...pero $35 hehe...

    Anyway po, not to be bias, pero yung mga palabas ng ABS, lalo na yung mga teleserye nila inuupload kadalasan sa youtube so puwede rin kayo dun maghanap...Yung X-Factor dun ko pinapanood e hehe

    @Diwata1057 at @LokiJr , sabi nyo lang yan. But when you get used to the price dito sa Au, bale wala na yang $35 per month sa inyo. TFC is like home away from home. Somehow, it would ease your loneliness and keep you updated of what's happening in our country.

    Yes, internet is an alternative. But I don't know if you can watch TV Patron live? Pero kung mga teleserye lang ang gusto nyo e ok na rin sa internet.

    @LokiJr nag bebenta ako ng welpinoy iptv box. no monthly fees. mas maganda ito kaysa sa TFC kasi mapapanood mo lahat ng chanel sa pinas pati cable TV channels. email mo ko if interested at [email protected] ito young sample video please check.
