“Totoo na ‘to! Live na live na talaga tayo at wala nang makapipigil!” the “unkabogable” star said in his live launch.

The digital channel is named The Vice Ganda Network and it is a joint venture with his management, Viva Entertainment.

The site opened at 8 PM and the show started at 9 PM with its first episode of his game show, “Ganda Prize”; promising a total of P100,000.00 in cash prizes.

The show features celebrities who are up to simple dares for a prize for their lucky viewers, starting at P1,000.

Among its first celebrity contestants are some members of the cast of “Kadenang Ginto.”——-Francine Diaz, Andrea Brillantes, Kyle Echarri, and Seth Fedelin. They joined the show via Skype.

However, there were technical issues due to the internet connection that affected the game from running smoothly. Some fans also complained that after they refreshed their browsers, the live feed did not load.

The first winner on its pilot episode is Kyle Echerri, who reached the jackpot round and won P4,000 for the viewers.

Vice Ganda gave away P1,000 each to 100 viewers and one lucky fan won P10,000.

With the shutdown of the Kapamilya network, it has affected most of ABS-CBN’s TV shows like “It’s Showtime”, where Vice Ganda is a regular host. His huge fanbase who missed seeing him urged the comedian to create his own program.

His other talk show, formerly Magandang Gabi Vice, is set to continue on his digital channel with its new name, “Gabing Gabi na Vice”. Its first episode will premiere on August 15 with guests, Angel Locsin and Bea Alonzo.
