A similar warning appears for GMA News Online, carrying the name of the media outlet in the notice.

The notices still appear as of posting, according to some users, although some have reported being able to access the ABS-CBN News website past 11:00 a.m.

ABS-CBN and GMA have yet to issue official statements on the website glitches as of posting time.

In a tweet, ABS-CBN News Digital executive editor Lynda Jumilla-Abalos said the network is already checking the glitch.

“Users reporting internet services of #PLDT, #Globe, #Converge down in several areas in Metro Manila. You may experience problems accessing our news site, http://news.abs-cbn.com if you’re using these providers. Please be patient; we’re having it checked from our end,” she said.
