On May 27, 2010, the word "Broadcasting" was removed from the media conglomerate's name to reflect the company's diversification, which resulted in the name change from ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation to simply ABS-CBN Corporation. Despite the name change, the name ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation is still used on some uses such as the network's sign-on and sign-off (until June 26, 2012), at the end of credits of Maalaala Mo Kaya (until late 2010s), and on some news articles that are related to the network and media conglomerate.

“It is a response to the changes in the media landscape brought about by technology. The media business has gone beyond merely broadcasting to encompass other platforms.”
Eugenio Lopez III, ABS-CBN Corporation Chairman, May 27, 2010
