On February 15, 2015, Sky TV+ was rebranded as ABS-CBN TVplus. The digibox had a brand new look in 2016. The ABS-CBN TVplus set top box and its services have shut down on June 30, 2020 due to the alias cease-and-desist order (ACDO) issued by the National Telecommunications Commission.

During the congressional hearing for the renewal of ABS-CBN's broadcast franchise, ABS-CBN Corporation confirmed that they have stopped selling TVplus boxes in February 2020 after the media conglomerate's subsidiary and TVplus' parent, ABS-CBN Convergence failed to secure a separate legislative franchise during that same month.

In September 2021, its unsold inventory of the TVplus units were repackaged as ABS-CBN TVplus Digital TV Receiver, with a new packaging and removing any traces of ABS-CBN free-to-air digital channels and its Premium Channels including the "Ang Mahiwagang Black Box" tagline. These repackaged units are now promoting it as a regular digital TV set-top box that receives any free-to-air digital channels. Also, both logos of ABS-CBN TVplus Digital TV Receiver and Sulit TV also appeared on ABS-CBN Entertainment's rescan advisory being aired during primetime shows on A2Z and TV5.
