Here’s How Filipino Fans Can Watch The NBA From Anywhere

Whether you’re comfortable at home or sitting in traffic, you can catch all the NBA action without missing a shot with these viewing options.

There are countless basketball fans who watch the NBA in the Philippines. In fact, the NBA Asia Managing Director, Ramez Sheikh, said himself that the Philippines is among the top markets in the world for the NBA, as only second to the United States in certain criteria, such as Facebook followers. As a nation that loves basketball, this surely does not come as a surprise.

The excitement for the return of the NBA is certainly brewing as we wind down to the official tip-off of the upcoming 2023-2024 season. Opening night is set for October 24, and before then, you need to make sure that you’re all set to catch every game you possibly can this season.
