PVL sticking with ABS-CBN for now

MANILA, Philippines — While other leagues with tie-ups with ABS-CBN’s sports channel Sports + Action now reconsidering their options, the Premier Volleyball League said it remains committed to the beleaguered TV station.

“Until we hear from (ABS-CBN) that they can’t cover us, we’ll keep our commitment to them,” said Ricky Palou, president of Sports Vision, which organizes the PVL.

Palou said it doesn’t matter if ABS-CBN would air their games either online or through a block time with another network.

Meanwhile, MPBL officials are to sit down in a meeting with league owner Sen. Manny Pacquiao to plot its own move.

The question is whether to look for a new home after partnering with ABS-CBN S+A for its first four seasons. Unlike the UAAP and NCAA, the MPBL is a blocktimer, meaning it buys airtime to telecast its games.

“Pag-usapan pa namin with our founder Sen. Manny kung anong next step for us and for the league,” MPBL commissioner Kenneth Duremdes told The STAR.

The S+A channel also airs mixed martial arts events such as the ONE Championship and the Beach Volleyball Republic.
