GMA Network’s internet tv launched

While I dislike GMA Network’s policy of overloading its programming with so much advertising, I commend its new effort in bringing Philippine TV to every Filipino on Earth with an internet connection through myGMA Internet TV.

The concept is similar to that of ABS-CBN/TFC Now. But unlike ABS-CBN’s service that uses Windows Media Player, GMA uses flash video like the one used on YouTube.
