During this time where the world is battling the Covid-19 pandemic, ABS-CBN Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) through TFC continues to provide relevant and timely news through its flagship program TV Patrol and Teleradyo. While staying at home is also made fun with family or friends with the high-rating classic series, and iWant Originals movies and short series in the program line-up.
