For the rest of the country transmitters will go up in key areas such as Bacolod, Cebu, Zamboanga, Davao, and Legazpi. From Monday to Saturday, ETC offers viewers the hottest and latest shows and episode’s straight from the United States.

Next year, they will be airing more of its popular series day and date with the U.S. just like the airing of its hit show Glee that ETC airs via satellite. Adding to ETC’s Match-Airing line-up in January is the return of the mystery-thriller Pretty Little Liars, and the long-running reality singing-competition American Idol. Also joining the channel in 2014 is the period drama Reign, which follows the early years of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the sci-fi romance drama Star-Crossed that tells the story of a relationship between a human girl and an alien boy.
