Balitang America (News America) is a 30-minute daily newscast with a nationwide scope, airing via satellite subscription on The Filipino Channel and its local affiliate station in the San Francisco Bay Area, KTSF. This makes Balitang America the first-ever Filipino American news program to be broadcast throughout North America. The Filipino Channel targets this newscast to air over its other nationwide station affiliates as well as worldwide, via satellite. Through its army of reporters and correspondents all over the United States, Balitang America will broadcast news that matters to every Filipino American. National headlines and issues of significance to the community will be delivered in a round-up style from all over the nation.

Since 2019, the program uses English subtitles for the Tagalog soundbytes, similar to ABS-CBN's sister channel, ABS-CBN News Channel.

Community features, profiles, and special reports will also be an integral part of the show's lineup, giving Filipinos all over the United States a voice and face on television.

Community updates, events, and public service announcements will be available via Balitang America's very own community calendar, Pinoy Datebook, and postings called Pinoy Panawagan. Highlight events for the week will also be featured. Balitang America stopped its airing on ABS-CBN's sister channel, ABS-CBN News Channel.
