GMA recently launched its DTV receiver box called as GMA Affordabox. Only a few weeks after its release, the network has announced that it will add new channels on free-to-air TV.
The GMA Affordabox retails for a price of only Php888, much cheaper than the Php1,499 price of its competitor, the ABS-CBN TVPlus. The device provides a better and clearer reception on GMA’s main channel, GMA News TV, and the Heart of Asia channel.
