As part of their renewed partnership, Smart and NBA formally relaunch NBA.com Philippines. The updated local website aims to give avid fans access to game highlights, stats, standings, scores, and schedules, and will have localized content that includes recaps and analysis from a roster of sports reporters and basketball personalities.
“Through our redesigned destination, fans will be able to connect with their favorite teams and players through instant access to NBA news and original content,” NBA Asia Head of Global Content and Media Distribution Ramez Sheikh said.
The content lineup does not end there, as NBA.com Philippines will have a weekly podcast called “NBA Hype Squad” where local influencers will discuss about the latest league news. Leading the website is NBA.com Philippines Managing Director Mico Hallili, who is in charge of all the content curation on the site.
As part of its partnership, Smart will be providing free data access to NBA.com Philippines for both postpaid and prepaid subscribers. Smart subscriberts can watch the 2020-21 NBA Season by subscribing to NBA League Pass, which is offered in monthly and 3-Game Choice packages as Php 485 and Php 85 per month respectively.
In addition, Smart prepaid subscribers can watch the NBA TV Philippines livestream by subscribing to GIGA Video 99, which gives them 1GB data allocation for watching videos on NBA League Pass, YouTube, and Cignal Play and 2GB open-use data per day for 7 days.
“NBA.com Philippines bolsters our line-up of NBA offerings for Smart subscribers, which embodies our ‘It’s all here’ campaign tagline and reflects our commitment to bringing the world’s premier basketball league closer to fans nationwide,” Smarty President and CEO Al Panlilio said.
