Makisig Network, Inc. (TV Xtreme Broadcasting Company as a new corporate name) was a sports entertainment channel owned by horseowner-businessman Hermie Esguerra through Herma Group, Inc. The network's studios were located at Sct. Rallos Ave., Quezon City. It was the home coverage channel of the Karera @ San Lazaro Leisure Park. It was officially launched in December 2007. Makisig Network ceased airing in August 6, 2009.
The channel focused on Philippine sports programming.
On October 2008, Makisig ceased the live horse racing coverage at the San Lazaro Leisure Park. An insider claimed that the network gave a letter (via fax) to the Manila Jockey Club (MJCI, owners of SLLP) that their service will cover the live racetrack race until October 27, 2008, despite signing a three-year contract with Manila Jockey Club. The channel continued to air despite this development.
The live race is now on San Lazaro Broadcasting Network.
