Where is AKTV, Where is AKTV going now?

For a blog post under current events, this is not so current.

It's rare that I get to watch television these days, most of the time I only watch basketball TV and sports channels, I rely on the internet to feed me with all the news and sports events that I need to watch on demand, while that is great I still missed out of some of the news that I may not necessarily want to see but could be useful, like knowing that AKTV is now gone, what gone?

I did not knew that until now, what a shame, searched it on Google:

"AKTV is the defunct primetime sports programming block in the Philippines. Owned and operated by TV5, it occupies the 5:00 to 11:00pm timeslot of IBC; weekend coverage usually begins at 11:00 am to 11:00 pm."

Wow, it has been a month since the channel stopped airing and I do
not have an idea! being that it is a sports channel and some of my favorite local sports event are shown there, I worried on where I would be able to watch local basketball event like PBA and the upcoming FIBA Asia that will be held in Manila.

Thankfully they plan to move some of the high rated sports events on TV5 and AkysonTV, both owned by the same company.

If you found out about this news here then we both lived under the rock for sometime. 

Pow Salud
