Tagalog-dubbed classic telenovela hit Two Sides of Ana (Las Dos Cara's de Ana) will air its maiden episode on February 8, 2016 at 5am and 8pm primetime evening over BEAM Channel 31 ( SkyCable Channel 72, Destiny Cable Channel 80, Cable Link Channel 82, and CableStar Channel 4), with catch-up marathon on weekends. For lovers of the classic Spanish telenovela genre, this is a welcome alternative to the local and Korean standard drama fare seen in leading broadcasters’ offerings.

She has a job taking care of a wealthy widow who is very fond of her and finances her dreams. She meets handsome Gustavo at the prestigious school but is soon embroiled in troubles at home with the death of her mother and brother in the hands of a wealthy family. She vows and sets out to avenge their deaths taking on a second identity, unknowing that it may cost her the loss of Gustavo's love.

BEAM Channel 31 (www.beam.com.ph) is a free-to-air TV owned and operated by Broadcast Enterprises and Affiliated Media, Inc. (BEAM), a subsidiary of Bethlehem Holdings, Inc., an investee of Globe Telecom’s Retirement Fund. BEAM started airing classic Spanish telenovelas in May last year with three maiden titles, classic hits La Madrasta (The Stepmother), Palabra de Mujer (A Woman’s Word), and Big Love (Llena de Amor). It launched a new telenovela entitled Muchacha Italiana to replace A Woman's Word when the latter's concluding episode aired in November.
The free-to-air broadcaster changed its program line-up after significantly improving its analog broadcast facilities while starting the deployment of a brand new digital ISDB-T broadcast network in its service areas of NCR, Cebu, Davao, Baguio, Naga, Iloilo and Zamboanga.
Two Sides of Ana is the latest classic title offering of BEAM Channel 31, replacing Big Love, the concluding episode of which will be airing on February 5. The Spanish telenovela trend in the Philippines started in 1994 and continues to have following particularly among young-to-middle aged women.
