Athletes React To The Closing Of ABS-CBN Sports + Action

On Thursday, ABS-CBN Sports + Action bid goodbye after six years of service. The ABS-CBN S+A was launched in January 2014 as a replacement for the ABS-CBN’s sister station Studio 23. It served as the home channel for sports programs in the past including UAAP and other sports tournaments before it was reformatted to a whole new program that is Sports + Action.

But on Wednesday, the network announced that they will "layoff workers starting August 31 after 70 lawmakers voted to kill the Kapamilya network's broadcast franchise application." And it includes the sports program of the network.

ABS-CBN S+A carried 70% sports content while the remaining was allotted for news and entertainment. S+A became the home for UAAP and NCAA, as well as other sports. It allowed us to watch live coverage of sports for *free*, so to see it signing off is devastating especially for its employees, sports fans, and even the athletes who became part of it.
