  • August 5 – People's Television Network airs an mistake of showing a photo of a People’s Liberation Army Navy Type 054A Jiangkai II-class vessel with the Philippine flag waving in their story on President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement on his plan to send a Philippine Navy ship to Libya to help rescue Filipino hostages abducted by terrorists, which is aired on the network's weekend newscast Ulat Bayan and on the network's Facebook page. The network has removed their Facebook post on August 7 and they apologized “for the inadvertent use of wrong photos” for the story.
  • August 13–14 - FPJ's Ang Probinsyano production team was called out online by fans of the spouses Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera over the alleged unauthorized usage of the spouses' family pictures.[6] The controversy first began gaining steam when a twitter fan site dedicated to the spouse' daughter Zia, ZiaDantesFanSite posted a video with the caption “Zia's photo was unethically used by ‘Ang Probinsyano’ in Nov 2017. In last night's episode, [Dingdong and Marian] DongYan's photo was edited and used again by the show. Were the photos of Dingdong, Marian and Zia used [and] edited without permission? Dear Ang Probinsyano, strike two na po kayo ah.” which was quickly shared by other users and from which Dantes possibly gained knowledge of such usage. Dantes' response to the controversy was posted on his Facebook account[7] "Courtesy and fair practice must always be observed especially in an established industry like ours. But whether or not it is done within the entertainment sector, we should always be reminded of the basic etiquette for online photo use and sharing that includes asking permission and/or citing sources. I do hope that this won't happen again to anyone." he wrote. In the same post, Dantes also shared an excerpt of his letter to the production team dated August 11, 2018 which read “I appreciate that you found artistic inspiration from the original photos. Unfortunately, there is the inescapable consequence that legal and moral rights were violated here. And as you may very well be aware of, established industry practice is against such act as it amounts to disrespect. Worst of all, as a father and husband, I cannot help but feel offended and deeply hurt by such actions, which happened not just once, but twice. Basic rules of courtesy in this case dictate that you first secure permission from the photographer and my Family.”[8] On the following day, the production team of FPJ's Ang Probinsyano released a statement apologizing to Dantes and his family.[9] The statement explained that the production team hired a third-party contractor to create the props for the show, of which they were neither aware that the photograph belonged to Dantes nor was it intended to disrespect or offend Dantes and his family. The producers added that they have already launched an investigation "to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future." Alice Dixson, likewise offered her apology to Dantes.[10]
  • August 19 – The TNT Boys (Keifer Sanchez, Mackie Empuerto and Francis Concepcion) of Manila, Philippines won as the first Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids Season 2 grand champion.[11]

  • November 16 - ABS-CBN's over-the-top content platform service was officially relaunched as iWant, as the latter now emphasizes on adding original content similar to Netflix,[16] starting with Spirits: Reawaken (a reboot version of the original 2004–2005 series), Quezon's Game, and Alamat ng Ano.[17] Glorious and MA will be the first two original movies of iWant.
  • November 30 - ABS-CBN Mobile ceased its mobile network-sharing agreement and services between ABS-CBN and Globe Telecom. As earlier on the third quarter of 2018, they have officially announced that it will not renew their network-sharing agreement after assessing its mobile business model as financially unsustainable.
