GMA News marks another digital milestone with 10 million subscribers on YouTube, the first broadcast network in the Philippines and second in Asia to have three Diamond Play Buttons.

GMA Entertainment and GMA Public Affairs hit the 10 million subscriber mark in 2019 and 2020, respectively. GMA Entertainment channel now has 24.6 million subscribers while GMA Public Affairs has 16.7 million subscribers.

With a daily dose of breaking news and exclusive digital content, GMA News is now the third fastest-growing YouTube account in the country under the News and Politics category, according to video analytics firm Tubular Labs. As of 20 September, the channel has 8,523,279,860 total views.

“This latest YouTube Diamond Creator Award represents our commitment to Serbisyong Totoo, the hallmark of GMA News and Public Affairs. This commitment remains on any platform, from television to online,” said senior vice president for News and Public Affairs Marissa L. Flores.

Launched in 2011, GMA News’ channel hit the 100K subscriber mark in 2013 and the 1M subscriber feat in 2016.

“This is a great reward for our team, which works hard to deliver the most relevant news and information to Filipino viewers online — whatever device they may be using, whatever app they may choose,” said Jaemark Tordecilla, senior assistant vice president for News and Public Affairs Digital Media.
