[ Source: InterAKTV ] - April 12, 2013

Manny Pangilinan. InterAksyon.com file/Bernard TestaTV5 remains committed to airing PBA games live despite the impending end of the network’s blocktime agreement with IBC-13.

In a tweet, Sports5 head Chot Reyes said that the network will continue to air the league’s games live.

“Sports5 is committed to airing the PBA live. In fact, we’re discussing with [PBA commissioner] Chito Salud regarding airing the finals [of the Commissioner's Cup] ‘LIVE ON FIVE,’” Reyes said.

The network has been airing games over its AKTV sports block on IBC-13. On Thursday, TV5 chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan told reporters that the company would let its agreement with IBC-13 lapse in May, adding that the deal was expensive.

“Hindi na siguro. Hanggang Mayo lang yun. Masyadong mahal. Lugi kami dun,” Pangilinan told reporters.
