Sofitels Side of the Story regarding UNTV’s Boycott

A couple of weeks ago, the internet and social media was in an uproar due to UNTV’s supporters calling out for a boycott of Sofitel for removing the channel in their program offering in the rooms.

This article is just to present both sides of the story – once we get a copy of UNTV’s statement – we will also publish it.


Sofitel Manila’s Official Statement on the UNTV Boycott Campaign

“We do not discriminate against any local or international broadcasting television channel. While we supply several television channels for our guests, the channels we air in the hotel are system-limited, and regularly changed based on several factors, including guest feedback and demand.

We are happy to hear the public’s concerns, and will consider to re-instate the UNTV Channel if this is a request from our hotel guests”.

*The official statement was posted 15th of July 2014 via the official Facebook Page of Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila
