"Ang Probinsyano” will not end in April 2021 contrary to some media reports. It will air on the usual 8 pm slot followed by three other Primetime Bida programs “Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin,” “Walang Hanggang Paalam,” and “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Connect”.

TV5 will show the final week of "PBB: Connect" until the much-awaited The Big Night on March 14.

The partnership with TV5 and Cignal will bring ABS-CBN Entertainment to wider audience on free TV.

“We welcome the inclusion of ABS-CBN entertainment shows in our roster of programs. We believe that this content deal will benefit Filipino viewers across the country because of TV5's extensive coverage," said Robert P. Galang, Cignal and TV5 president and CEO.

Prior to this milestone, the network’s long-running concert variety program “ASAP Natin ‘To” as well as the afternoon film anthology “FPJ: Da King” have been airing Sundays on TV5 since January 24.

TV5 chairman Manny V. Pangilinan earlier confirmed ongoing talks with ABS-CBN to air more shows on the Kapatid network.

Before the denial of ABS-CBN's franchise last year, “Primetime Bida” had been the No. 1 programming block on national television, through Channel 2.
