Television host Buboy Villar couldn’t hide his happiness after Television and Exponents (TAPE) Inc. successfully regained ownership of Eat Bulaga’s YouTube channel.
In his Facebook post, Buboy shared the first live stream of Eat Bulaga on YouTube using their official channel.
“FIRST LIVE SA YT CHANNEL THANKYOU LORD!” Buboy wrote.
On September 9, TAPE Inc. posted its first live stream using the YouTube channel of Eat Bulaga.
However, the regaining of TAPE’s ownership on the Eat Bulaga channel disappointed Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon who were the former hosts of the longest-running noontime show.
They revealed their plan to take legal action to recover the YouTube channel.
“The owner of the YouTube channel is the owner of the email used to register it. It is not TAPE. The content of that YouTube account are past episodes of ‘Eat Bulaga.’ The copyright of the show and its episodes belong to TVJ,” Atty. Enrique Dela Cruz Jr. the legal counsel of TVJ said in a statement.
TVJ’s camp also suspected that Tape Inc. hacked the Youtube channel of Eat Bulaga to gain access to it.
Meanwhile, the Facebook page of Eat Bulaga was still inactive as of writing.
