MANILA, February 15, 2024 - This wet and wintry season lights up for millions of viewers around the world of TFC, iWantTFC and TFC IPTV with three exciting new shows that bring high energy right into viewers' homes. Each show is a window to Filipino culture that promises to surprise viewers with fresh discoveries and experiences.

It's no secret that "Top 10 Lists", or what neuromarketers sometimes describe as "the power of ten", always generate clicks and views. The lists may be data-based or purely subjective, but regardless of the weird psychology behind it, rankings are hot.
This is why "Best 10 Bets" - with new episodes every Sunday at times above - is gaining fast traction as a new must-watch show on TFC, iWantTFC and TFC IPTV.  Hosted by veteran TV host-actor-entertainment columnist Butch Francisco and film preservation advocate Leo Katigbak, the show dishes out immediate press pick-ups like the Top 10 Best Filipina Actresses of the Modern Era, Top 10 Beauty Queens Who Became Actresses,  Top 10 Best MMFF Movies of All Time, and other must-know rankings for FOMO showbiz fans.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Katigbak said, "This is a show where we'll have fun to discuss our picks. My list is personal, it's based on the perspective that I have and the projects that I've seen."


Let's face it: food shows are a dime a dozen.  But digital creator Jayzar Recinto, who professes to "travel for street food and eat anything that catches my fancy in between street food trips", gives off a regular guy, affable, humble, best friend vibes that propelled him to hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of views on social media.  His easy, casual but highly informative approach takes his viewers to an immersive, vicarious experience of his interesting food adventures.  
"First Bite by Jayzar Recinto" is all about discovering that magical first bite in savoring the vast array of Filipino dishes in the various streets and islands of the Philippines.  Catch it every Saturday at the times above.

Fourteen hunters. Isolated in a remote location. They must eliminate each other.  Until there's only one left to win the Php300,000 prize.
Who will you trust? Who will betray you? Who will lie to you? Who will be the last one standing?
Kumu's "Diamond Hunt" is not a new concept.  But the Filipino hunters and the location - the Masungi Georeserve situated in the southern Sierra Madre range in Baras, Rizal, Philippines – and the challenges are definitely worth watching (and discovering).

Hosted by Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 celebrity housemate Benedix Ramos, "Diamond Hunt" guarantees twists and turns to a familiar format that will excite fans of the genre.  Catch "Diamond Hunt" every Saturday and Sunday at the following times above.
