Solar named official broadcaster of 2013 FIBA-Asia

January 26, 2013 by  

Solar getting the FIBA Asia coverage is great news. I’m just hoping they get the right TV partner and if they’ll outsource some announcers from AKTV, please pick the good guys.

Solar Entertainment Corporation will be the official broadcaster of the the much-awaited 27th FIBA-Asia Championship set for August 1-11.

In a statement released by Solar, they expressed their “delight of promoting the development of Philippine basketball by providing the Filipino audience with the best coverage that they deserve.”

The television network holds the right to broadcast FIBA events and tournaments until December 31, 2015.

Solar’s COO Peter Chanliong also stated that they are “still in the process of talking to several television networks right now to see who among them would be the best choice in terms of being the free TV partner.”

“We’re looking forward to the games. We hope to make more announcements in the weeks to come,” Chanliong added.

FIBA-Asia officials, the SBP and Solar are set to meet on Monday to discuss the technical and production side of the games.
