V-League to enter talks with new network after ABS-CBN shutdown

There is no other recourse for the Premier Volleyball League but to find a new network to host its games after network giant ABS-CBN closed its sports department.

“This gives us no other option but to look for another network to cover our games. We are in the process of doing that,” Sports Vision president Ricky Palou told Power & Play.

Last Thursday, ABS-CBN let go of its sports division.

This comes in the wake of the House of Representatives denying the station a new franchise to air.

Palou is not rushing to talk to stations like One Sports and GMA, though, as he plans to talk to the league’s board first before entering into talks.

“We’re also consulting the teams on what they think about this and if they have any preference on who’s going to be our coverer. When we finalize all these details, we’ll talk to the different networks and see who’s willing to cover our games,” the chairman of the league continued.

“We’ve made contact with some of the networks but nothing is definite yet.”

Back in 2016, the V-League moved from GMA News TV to S+A. S+A aired all the games live either on television or through its online platform — a break away from its deal with GMA, which aired the games on tape delay.

A year later, ABS-CBN became a partner to the league, turning it to the Premier Volleyball League.
