Sidney's Awesome Cool Channel Ever
after Sidney's mother granted a 10 year franchise, 9 year old Australian-Filipino Sidney Davis launched her own channel on her mother's franchise which is called "Sidney's Awesome Cool Channel Ever", airing pirated movies and TV series, airing under channel 65 and its callsign was "DWBG-TV".
on November 21, 2001, during illegal airing of Spirited Away (at that time, airing in original language in English subtitles) at exactly 6:19am, NTC and police raided Sidney's house to shut down SACCE and arrest Sidney's mom for owning franchise that allows illegal TV operation, therefore the franchise was revoked and force Sidney to move to orphanage in USA, many fans of this channel condemned over shutdown of SACCE, forcing them to subscribe to cable operators (like SkyCable and Cablelink) to watch movies legally.
Its last image after unexpectedly stopped airing of Spirited Away (last image of that movie was one of the scenes from the Train scene) was still image of "SACCE" logo (except the only color is white) against black background with added "Forever" text in scripted font and a text "SACCE shuts down permanently as NTC and QCPD shuts down her cool channel, forcing her mom to be arrested for giving her such cool channel, what happened, the owner of channel will be orphanized and moved to a orphanage in USA, this is DWBG-TV now signing off", after 30 minutes, the channel went static.

A day after SACCE shutdown, AXN Asia simulcast takes over DWBG-TV after Sony deal with Philippine government.
