Eagle Broadcasting Corporation is a Philippine television and radio network. Its head office and studios are located at the EBC Bldg., No. 25 Central Ave., Brgy. New Era, Quezon City. The network named after the national bird Philippine Eagle.

History[edit]

In April 26, 1968, Eagle Broadcasting Corporation launched DZEC 1062, an AM Radio Station news, public service & religious broadcasting. It is similar to DZRH because it sometimes mentions its frequency & it has relay stations in Lucena, Dagupan, Cebu & Davao. In 1987, it launched DWDM 95.5, an FM Radio Station which played oldies music. It has ceased transmission since the beginning of 2007 apparently to upgrade its transmitter facilities. Around May 2007 it briefly returned in the airwaves on a lower bandwidth and limited broadcast hours, only on daytime. It lasted until June. It returned to the airwaves in April 2011 and launched as Pinas FM 95.5 a month later.

On April 23, 2000, Eagle Broadcasting Corporation launched a multimedia exhibit dubbed "Destination: PLANET 25", for a station previously owned by ACWS-United Broadcasting Network under the name UltraVision 25 and later acquired by EBC and renamed NET 25. Capable of 120 kilowatts of transmitter power (for a total of 7,896 kilowatts ERP), NET 25 boasts of the Philippines' first trilon TV tower that rises to 907 feet above sea level. A state-of-the-art JAMPRO 48-panel antenna and two 60 kW Acrodyne transmitters complete the tower package. NET 25 also has studios and editing suites for in-house and post-productions. Now Net-25 airs nationwide on three free TV stations in Manila, Cebu, and Davao as well as cable affiliates.

It was recently relaunched last August 7, 2011. As part of the relaunch, it also launched the Eagle Bayan Careavan. Livestreaming features of Net 25 (and its radio station DZEC) returned last January 2, 2014 after a 5-year hiatus.
