The Philippine network GMA announced a series of releases for the coming months. Firstly, through an agreement with the Asian streaming platform Viu Philippines, it will bring quality programs to more audiences. This initiative allows Viu consumers to access more GMA Network programs and binge-watch them for free on the platform. Viewers can enjoy these shows from GMA Network: "First Lady", "Anak ni Waray Vs. Anak ni Biday" (Hidden Lies), "Hanggang sa Dulo ng Buhay Ko" (Obsession), "Sahaya, Onanay" (The Way to Your Heart), "Pamilya Roces" (Family Jewels), and "Ika-5 Utos" (Revenge).

On the other hand, GMA's original production "Pulang Araw" is set to debut on Netflix on July 26th. In a first for the Network, the series will be available on the streaming platform 72 hours ahead of its scheduled local airing on GMA on July 29. 

Headlining this series are some of the biggest GMA stars: Barbie Forteza as Adelina, Sanya Lopez as Teresita, David Licauco as Hiroshi, and Alden Richards as Eduardo, with the special participation of Dennis Trillo as Col. Yuta Saito. “Pulang Araw” traces the intertwined lives of four childhood friends—Eduardo, Teresita, Adelina, and Hiroshi. As war ravages their homeland and Japanese forces occupy the country, their dreams, friendships, and loyalties are tested, leading them on a journey of self-discovery and resilience.  

Their war stories will definitely inspire and impact the lives of Filipinos today who persevere and remain hopeful despite extreme challenges. “Pulang Araw” captures the country’s rich history that built the identity and gave freedom to every Filipino.
