On June 1, 2020, Asianovela Channel temporarily took over the channel space of S+A (ABS-CBN Sports and Action). However, the channel permanently ceased broadcasting on July 1, 2020 due to the alias cease-and-desist order (ACDO) issued by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) and Solicitor General Jose Calida against ABS-CBN TV Plus.[3] On September 10, 2020, all the frequencies for Asianovela Channel have been erased by the NTC.[4]
