US cable operators offer Filipino Channel access in wake of Haiyan

U.S. cable television operators – including Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications – are allowing more customers’ access to The Filipino Channel in the wake of last week’s devastating Typhoon Haiyan.

The channel has been providing special coverage from the Philippines.

“To help Filipinos better connect to news and information about recovery efforts, Time Warner Cable and the Filipino Channel have agreed to make their network available at no additional cost to digital customers through Nov. 15,” Time Warner Cable said Monday in a statement. 

International Media Distribution, which distributes the channel, said at least 12 pay TV operators would offer their digital customers access to the Filipino Channel through Nov. 15, LA Times reports.

The list of providers also includes AT&T U-Verse, Bright House Networks, Comcast’s Xfinity TV, Frontier Communications, Hawaiian Telcom, Verizon FiOS TV and Wave Broadband.
