TV5 and Philippine Children's Television Foundation, Inc. (PCTVF) recently inked a deal to bring every Filipino child's playmate, Batibot, back on air.


Under the agreement, TV5 was granted broadcast and line production rights to air a new season of the child-oriented show from PCTVF. This further strengthens TV5's position as a child-friendly station because of its program line-up skewed to cater to children. A lot of the shows of the Kapatid Network are conferred with an Anak TV seal.


Present during the contract signing were TV5 President and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Ray C. Espinosa, PCTVF Executive Director Feny Delos Angeles-Bautista and TV5 Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Roberto V. Barreiro.


The return of Batibot signals the commitment of TV5 and PCTVF to deliver knowledge-based entertainment to kids through an iconic program that generations of Filipinos have grown up with.
