PBA to TV5: Revise proposal

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Jun. 04, 2013 at 12:01am
The Philippine Basketball Association wants TV franchise holder ABC 5 or TV 5 to go back to the drawing board and submit a revised proposal on its telecast of the pro league’s games, which are coming off a record-breaking Commissioner’s Cup.

Former chairman Rene Pardo told the Manila Standard that ABC 5 proved to be much better than previous coveror IBC 13, but that a proposal to telecast the second game live at 8:30 p.m. was not acceptable to a majority of the board members, who also ruled out a proposal for the games to be telecast on Action TV 41.

The new telecast proposal was a result of the termination of the ABC 5 contract with IBC 13, with the government reportedly bent on selling the sequestered network at the end of this year.

Pardo noted that even when the main game begins at 7:30 p.m., “many fans are seen standing up to leave the coliseum to catch the last MRT trip, so to delay the games even further was not acceptable.”

He said a move to Action TV 41, a UHF channel was bound to result in former PBA chairman Lito Alvarez of Air21 raising the issue of why the league rejected his support for a Studio 23 telecast initially when it is a far more established network that said channel.

Meanwhile, after anchoring Air21 solidly in the first two conferences of the season, Nino Canaleta got himself a nice pay day.

The Express gave the versatile swingman a maximum three-year contract extension due to his impressive showing this season.
