Last May 26, an estimated crowd of 3,500 filled the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California to witness the formal launch of TV5’s two new international channels, Kapatid TV5 and Aksyon TV International. Filipino fans who eagerly waited for this momentous event were treated to a spectacular show led by their idol Willie Revillame with co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez and Camille Villar. It’s been a while since Willie last visited the U.S., with Filipinos from neighboring towns and states flocking to catch a glimpse of the Wil Time Bigtime stars. Kapatid Stars Aga Mulach, Ruffa Gutierrez, Derek Ramsay, and Superstar Nora Aunor also charmed the hearts of those who came to see the show.

After the successful launch in Los Angeles, TV5 International’s “The Big Launch” will stage a similar event in Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA on June 2.

Kapatid TV5 and Aksyon TV International will be available in North America via DISH Network.
