With the big networks having a hold of national TV, competition is fierce and they go leaps and bounds to get viewership in many areas. But here comes PIAYA NETWORK which proudly hails from Negros Island bringing in their local stories and concepts on a larger scale via Cignal TV.

The founder of the network is a young multimedia director Anthony Leo Agguire which also heads Aperture Tales Production which makes post production and videography for various clients mostly from their region. From there they have conceived several shows powered by high precision and definition cameras which captures their stories in high quality.

The network actually started as personal projects made by Anthony Aguirre as he applied what he learnt in Multimedia Arts. To fund his concepts, he had to sell his car to venture into his dream. And it is now bearing fruit with the expansion of the network and also new shows upcoming along with the launch. Now with the help of his father, he continues to pursue the dream now ready to face more challenges.
