PBA press release : PBA now with ABS-CBN

The PBA Board of Governors has approved the proposal of Solar Entertainment Corp. to transfer the television broadcast and coverage of the PBA games for the second and third conferences of the 36th season to Studio 23.

This approval was granted by the Board last Monday, February 7, after evaluating the technical facilities and capability of Studio 23 vis-à-vis RPN 9.

“The members of the Board have consulted with their respective principals regarding the said transfer,” said Board chairman Rene Pardo. “Given the time constraints and lack of available and acceptable VHF channels at this time, the Board allowed the transfer of the coverage to Studio 23 for the rest of the season.”

“The Board’s decision ensures that our fans will continue to enjoy our PBA games for the 36th season,” said PBA Commissioner Chito Salud.

“It has always been the primary consideration of the Board of Governors that our games are brought to a wider and younger audience.”
