Video: ESPN the Worldwide Leader in Sports is Roaring Back to the Philippines, Partners with TV 5

ESPN and TV 5 Partners to form ESPN 5 in the Philippines. 

ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports is venturing back to the Philippines and this time they are partnering with TV 5. 

I first learned about the news when I saw the live stream of TV 5 on Facebook during the recent Digicon event in the Philippines. Chot Reyes was speaking in front of the delegates as he announced the big news while taking off his jacket and revealing the logo of ESPN printed beside TV 5 printed on his shirt.
As a sports fan and a blogger, I know that this would be really big for Filipino sports communities. 
Excited as ever, I had to post the news and share it with my social media network.

The move will bring great and new sports contents to the Philippines including the American favorite NFL, NCAA, X-Games, Indy racings and a lot more. We also heard that they will be producing the Philippine version of the ESPN Sportscenter. 
Current sports programming of TV 5 like the PBA, PSL and the Gilas games will now be under ESPN and we couldn’t be more excited about the news.
While Sports 5 is already doing great in their sports programming, ESPN brings global experience, expertise, and branding that would help local sporting events get more international exposure.
Surely, this is just a start and we are hoping that the partnership between the two media giants would grow even more as they continue to serve the sports fans in the Philippines.
One of the sports I am excited to really know more about is American Football or NFL, kept asking myself why all of my American friends are crazy about it. 
If you are not excited about the partnership of TV 5 and ESPN yet, watch this video below.

PBA out in the cold

by: powsalud|

The country’s premier basketball league PBA will soon end its contract with solar sports and was hoping to choose between TV5 and ABS-CBN as coveror, but all of a sudden the country’s biggest network pulls out of the running and left PBA out in the cold. looks like PBA lost its charm, and with no other choice than TV5 as their official broadcast network for its 37th season they would have to suffice with whatever TV5 has to offer. 
And so we thought that the PBA will gain more exposure and popularity by getting pick up by ABS-CBN. We were wrong because ABS-CBN would rather support foreign sports like NBA basketball, who would not? Its all about the money.(source)
