DWGT-TV Channel 4 is a Philippine broadcast television station licensed to broadcast to the Metro Manila region on VHF Channel 4 with a radiated power of 40 kW's.
DWGT-TV is the flagship station of the National Broadcasting Network.
DWGT-TV first came on air as a government owned station in 1974 under the name Government Television or shortened to GTV 4.
The NBN network is government owned I am unsure how politically tied to the government it is.
DWGT-TV and NBN's programming is very varied with News and Affairs Shows, Sports, Drama, to Religious shows.
The last two letters of DWGT-TV call sign refer to Government Television.
First of we begin with a standard test pattern with NBN PHIL on it, then a short video explaining I guess that the stations affiliated to NBN are now signing on, the various stations location on a map and their channel number, sadly I can not make out much more, maybe someone who reads this blog can comment here and fill me in.
Broadcasting Radio and Television in The Philippines it is customary and even recommended by the government to play the National Anthem at Sign-off and Sign-On.
So this is the next video which I will let speak for itself, featuring various phrases in English tagged to various Presidents with their slogans of their day..
Then a what's on next and on tonight slides, and finally a NBN ident/bumper which has a very North American Local News feel to me.
