Sports Specials/Coverage[edit]



Main article: AKTV

AKTV, TV5's former primetime sports and active lifestyle programming arm, AKTV has a block time contract with IBC that gives it the primetime slot from 5-11 pm on weekdays and 11:00 am to 11:00 pm on weekends in the government sequestered network, it was announced that MediaQuest Holdings/TV5 chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan due to expiration contract between AKTV and IBC expires in May 2013.

The development is not expected to affect the Commissioner’s Cup coverage since the tournament would be over by the time the AKTV-IBC deal expires, but the board will have to sit down again soon to discuss on which free television channel the PBA games will be aired next.

With IBC-13 being eyed for privatization by the government, the station can no longer agree to any long-term contract with block timers, while TV5 is currently loaded with programing during its primetime slot, including an hour-long newscast.
