Mr. Noli Eala of the SMC Corporation has announced a while ago using his Twitter Account that the TV5 of Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan (MVP) has bagged the PBA TV deal. They will start airing the arguably, most famous and most competitive basketball league in South East Asia, the PBA, on October 2011. However, Studio 23 will still air the rest of the PBA Governors' Cup 2011. Here's what Noli Eala tweeted:
"RT @NoliEala: Congrats to TV5 for bagging PBA TV deal. Kudos also to Air21 for acquiring franchise of Barako bull. Good luck to all! :)"
