YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — Based on customer requests for Philippine programming, Allied Telesis is offering a free preview of two GMA channels on its cable television lineup through the end of August, general manager Bruse Green said in a notice sent to subscribers.

GMA is available at Channel 98. GMA Life TV occupies Channel 99 on the base’s coaxial system. They can be viewed by all Yokota residents during the promotion.

"We … want to know if there is sufficient customer demand for us to continue to offer this to the community," Green wrote.

If so, it will be delivered as a separate service, he said. Customers would have the option to sign up for basic cable, basic plus GMA, premium or premium plus GMA.

Those interested in the Filipino channels should send an e-mail to and indicate which one they would prefer for subscription, according to the notice.
