Many Filipinos love watching PBA – especially those who are fans of the veteran teams such as Talk n’ Text and Barangay Ginebra. The Araneta Coliseum is even tightly packed during the finals of PBA leagues and championships. For those fans who cannot buy the tickets and watch the actual games in the coliseum, several local TV channels offer hours of airtime for the games. Additionally, all Philippine TV channels include news updates of the games in the sports section of their news programs.


For example, you can follow PBA through the special sports program, “The Score” of ABS CBN’s sister channel S&A (Sports and Action). But this mechanism is only good for people living in the Philippines. So people are diligently looking for alternative ways to watch PBA Basketball online, especially when they are abroad.
