- PLDT and Smart bring NBA League Pass to PH
- PLDT and Smart to Offer Live and On-Demand NBA Games to Their 62 Million Subscribers through NBA League Pass Offerings
There are certainly two things we can’t get enough of: our mobile phones and the NBA Finals.
We love our mobile phones so much we always have them within our reach, and yes, we love the NBA equally we make it a point to have it within our reach, too – even for a cost, or say, a hard-earned, 3GB mobile internet. However, the videos that we get to watch online after a long day at school or work are usually (sure as shooting) not in real time. It is pretty annoying to be spoiled by unthinking social media posts (in particular one of your self-interested friends’ time and again updates) about how the Warriors thrashed the Rockets at Game 7. Well, you can’t blame them for being passionate, eh? As a fanatic, you just have to make wiser decisions now.
That is why, bringing the NBA League Pass to the Philippines through Smart and PLDT may be revolutionary for hard-core NBA fans, including you.
You can now surely keep up with your friend’s time and again NBA updates with these new offerings. Providing fans like you with access to live and on-demand NBA games online, PLDT and Smart make select offerings of NBA League Pass available to their subscribers. The NBA League Pass offerings include a so-called ‘Day Pass,’ which enables users to watch live games for the entire day for Php50 – just perfectly valued. This is ideal for those who travel a lot but still want to get ahead on the live happenings in NBA, which is just a tap away, thanks be to these 2018, fresh offerings. This can be accessed online and through iOS and Android phones and tablets wherever and whenever you may be.
Apart from this, PLDT Home has made sure that users have wide options, allowing them to have the selected NBA League Pass offering added into their monthly broadband subscription. Meanwhile, Smart Prepaid and Postpaid customers can have the Day Pass promo by texting NBA50 to 9999. Furthermore, subscribers of PLDT and Smart will have access to NBA highlights, game recaps and daily top plays on the official websites of PLDT Home and Smart 360.
Love for Basketball
It is true that we Filipinos love basketball, and this new offering is an effective way to make the viewing easier and within one’s means.
This is primarily ascertained by PLDT and Smart Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Business Market Development, Oscar Reyes. He noted that Filipinos have a unique love for basketball, which is why the game has been at the center of their advocacy for sports excellence all over the country. He said they look forward to empowering Filipinos with digital experiences that enrich their lifestyle whether at home or on-the-go through their partnership with NBA.
Meanwhile, NBA Philippines Managing Director Carlo Singson said PLDT and Smart provide the ideal platform for them to broaden their reach in the Philippines – two companies that share their passion for providing live NBA action.
Quality at its finest
Some other offerings include regular-season games, NBA All-Star, NBA Playoffs, The Finals, as well as select preseason and NBA Summer League games live.
What is equally amazing is how these offerings are presented in high-definition with live stats and multiple viewing options, including the NBA Mobile View, which delivers a closer shot of the games, specially modified for viewing on smaller screens. The NBA League Pass promos are offered in more than 200 countries. Surely, these offerings cater to a huge market as it has a friendly positioning.***
There really are two things we can’t get enough of – our mobile phones and NBA. Combined with an easy and affordable access, we can only imagine the entertainment it would bring about.
(PLDT and Smart will also serve as official partners of NBA 3X Philippines presented by AXA, a 3-on-3 tournament featuring men’s and women’s teams and authentic NBA entertainment, showcasing their products and services at the event.)
