Manila Times reported that the device is expected to feature a multimedia player, a personal video recorder, and a nationwide emergency warning broadcast system.

Currently, the channels that users can watch in the digital display are GMA, GMA News TV, and Heart of Asia.

Certified Kapamilya FB page claimed that it will be priced at PHP 888 with four confirmed channels for now. 

GMA confirmed on Sunday that the company will soon launch the device.

The National Telecommunications Commission earlier said that when the industry realizes 95 percent of households having access to DTT broadcasting, analog TV will have a complete shutdown.

The government eyes the shift of TVs from analog to digital by 2023.
