Smart 5G to facilitate broadcast of the PBA Bubble


Following a hiatus that sees the Philippines’ premier basketball league out of the limelight due to the health crisis, PBA is back once again. Albeit, in a bubble format similar to the NBA bubble, in Clark Freeport, Pampanga.

Despite the deliberate isolation, the PBA All-Filipino Cup officially kickstarted on October 11, and is being broadcasted by Smart 5G.

More than just providing avid viewers the intense action of the game at the palm of their hands, the 5G coverage of the event also sees a never-before-seen flair where anyone involved in the game is strictly monitored for their body temperature via heat-sensing cameras. 

But the main highlight of the event is indeed the high-powered actions in the play as well as the drama of the sport, which are gathered by the minute as part of the show.
