After the denial of ABS-CBN's 25-year legislative franchise application on July 10, the embattled network continues to find ways to reach Kapamilyas through Kapamilya Channel on satellite and cable and Kapamilya Online Live on YouTube and Facebook.

"Diba sabi ko sa inyo Madlang People, better days are coming," he added referring to his tweet on Thursday and said "Kitakits."

It's Showtime co-hosts then asked, "Saan?" and "Kailan ba yan?"

“2-2, eh kung 1 plus 1 equals 2, edi 1 and 1 equals 11,” said Vice.

This month, It's Showtime is celebrating their 11th anniversary. The return to free TV may be soon.

Earlier reports said that Bro. Eddie Villanueva of ZOE Broadcasting Network and ABS-CBN's management already agreed to a blocktime agreement.

Aside from It's Showtime, reports said ABS-CBN's flagship news program TV Patrol, the longest-running teleserye FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and musical program ASAP Natin’To are also part of the blocktime deal.

ZOE TV and GMA News TV

ZOE TV, with headquarters in Ortigas Center, Pasig City, was assigned frequency rights of Channel 11 for analog and Channel 20 for digital signal under call letters DZOE-TV in Metro Manila. The Congress passed its franchise to operate on July 17, 2016.

SKY on Friday announced to add ZOE TV on Channel 11 in all SKYcable plans starting October 5, 2020.

"Watch out for the latest details of Zoe channel soon!," the advisory said.
