WITH their free television platform currently shut, ABS-CBN Sports has decided to bring its content on its digital platforms and cable sports channel LIGA.
Began on Friday, May 8, some of the group’s well-loved programs and shows used to be shown over ultra high frequency channel S+A are now available on its social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, the ABS-CBN YouTube channel, and streaming service iWant.
They are also shown over LIGA, which can be seen nationwide through its 200 provincial cable affiliates.
While not necessarily new to the group as it has been doing such for some time now, ABS-CBN Sports saw the need to turn to such channels of presentation at this point after the National Telecommunications Commission issued a cease-and-desist order versus ABS-CBN, which forced the media giant to halt its broadcast operations on May 5 while its franchise renewal is still pending in Congress.
Among those affected was its sports channel S+A.
Currently being shown are Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League — Philippines (MPL-PH) Season 5, sports lifestyle program Upfront, sports talk show The Score, new program Homework, Extra Rice with Beau Belga and Kalye Confessions with Cherry Nunag, among others.
LIGA is on Channel 86 and LIGA HD on Channel 183 on SkyCable and Destiny. For livestreaming of MPL-PH, head to sports.abs-cbn.com, TFC.tvSports, and the Facebook and YouTube accounts of ABS-CBN Sports.
