Dumlao’s statement came after the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) issued a cease and desist order against SKY Direct Satellite Broadcast Service nationwide.

Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the NTC ordered the company to cease and desist operating its direct broadcast satellite service immediately, to show cause in writing within 10 days why the radio frequencies assigned to SKY Cable Corporation should not be recalled for lack of necessary Congressional Franchise as required by the law, and to give refunds to all of its subscribers.

In a statement of SKY Cable Corporation, which obtained by Yugatech, the company appealed to the National Telecommunications Commission to extend the same privilege that was given in the past to other companies whose franchises had expired but were currently pending in the Congress in order to continue its operations until a resolution was passed.

Moreover, SKY Cable Corporation assured its subscribers that the company would exhaust all of its legal remedies in order to continue its services.
