Papua New Guinea operator Digicel said its Digicel Play service has revamped its TVWAN channels enabling it to deliver more programs to viewers.

TVWAN has introduced one new paid channel, TVWAN Life and relaunched its existing pay-channel, TVWAN Sports, to be rebranded as TVWAN Action.

The existing channels TVWAN and TVWAN Rugby will continue as free-to-view.

Some programs which were aired through both channels will now be televised on the new TVWAN Action or TVWAN Life. To watch live programs, viewers must subscribe to the relevant pay-packages.

Commentary:

One of the most interesting developments in terms of television showing is the popularity of Filipino  tv programs.  Programs like Mara Clara  and Forevermore seems to have high viewership especially amongst the female audience.

Why is this so?

Perhaps it’s the romance, the drama and the fact that the programs are relatable that makes them high in demand. Interestingly, Forvermore runs at 5pm in the afternoon and the same episode is run again at 10 in the evening.  Even a Melanesian based program Love Patrol which was previously shown at 5pm has been replaced by Forevermore which clearly indicates that this Filipino television program has a far higher viewership than the Vanuatu television series.

For male television viewers, rugby league is hard to beat.  TVWAN’s rugby channel TV Rugby airs four or more live matches each weekend.

Our disappointment however is the removal of the travel and food television channel.  Perhaps this is an indication that the mass television audience in Papua New Guinea aren’t really considering travel or quality food due to the exorbitant prices of both.
