TV Xtreme Broadcasting Company (formerly Makisig Network) is an entertainment channel owned by horseowner-businessman Hermie Esguerra through Herma Group, Inc. The network's studios were located at 89 Timog Avenue, South Triangle, Quezon City.

It was the home coverage channel of the Karera @ San Lazaro Leisure Park. It was officially launched in December 2007. Makisig Network became TV Xtreme on August 6, 2009.

Racing coverage closure[edit]

On October 2008, Makisig ceased the live horse racing coverage at the San Lazaro Leisure Park. An insider claimed that the network gave a letter (via fax) to the Manila Jockey Club (MJCI, owners of SLLP) that their service will cover the live racetrack race until October 27, 2008, despite signing a three-year contract with Manila Jockey Club. The channel continued to air despite this development.

The live race is now on San Lazaro Broadcasting Network.
