Western Union

Tres Marias is an authorised agent for Western Union. Western Union is a method of transferring money overseas via cash to cash or cash to a bank account in minutes, wherever they are in the world. It’s available in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.

Western Union is great if:
• you want to send a cash gift to loved ones overseas
• you’re helping support family or friends living in another country
• you run out of money while travelling
• your wallet, cash or bank cards have been stolen and you need money urgently
• you’re helping pay student fees.

The cost to send money internationally depends on how much you want to send and where you want to send it. Money can be sent as a ‘cash to cash money transfer’ where no bank accounts are required at either end or using ‘Direct to Bank’ where funds can be sent direct to a bank account. The person receiving the money isn’t charged any fees.

ABS-CBN, one of the major broadcasting network in the Philippines, has always been guided by one principle – to be of service to each and every Filipino. One solid proof of this is ABS-CBN Global, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the network, whose main inspiration is to bring countless Filipinos abroad back home through programs and products that reflect their needs, dreams and aspirations.

Our flagship product, TFC, The Filipino Channel, is a 24-hour cable, satellite, IPTV, web & mobile service that broadcasts globally, carrying a range of programs to suit the needs and preferences of over 8 million overseas Filipinos. TFC provides both TV and Radio entertainment and offers shows reflective of Filipino culture and values to evolve and be responsive to the needs of our ‘Kapamilyas’.

TFC is more than just TV. TFC aims to bring Filipinos all over the world together. TFC was envisioned to be the ‘bridge’ to unite the family around what brings out the best in Filipino and reflects true Filipino sentiment. Thus, we have been steadfast in our commitment to deliver inspiring stories, entertaining programs, relevant news from the homeland. TFC has helped facilitate the adaptation of new immigrants as it keeps them connected to the Filipino experience. It is a purveyor of Filipino culture and values to younger generations, and through it we aim to promote a better understanding and appreciation of Filipino identity and pride.

As our consumers continuously evolve through the years, so will TFC. We acknowledge that our consumers will assimilate into the different cultures and consequently will have unique motivations and demands for entertainment. TFC commit’s to continuously be responsive to these changes -- our channel line-ups, programming, and even technology will continually evolve to be responsive to the needs of our ‘Kapamilyas’.
