Marketed as the first and only international OTT app dedicated to Pinoy sports, Pilipinas Live is designed to highlight Cignal TV's premier sports properties for the global audience, including the UAAP, which kicks off its new season starting with men's basketball. The platform also includes other sporting events such as the Philippines Basketball Association (PBA), the Premier Volleyball League (PVL), and Spiker’s Turf, all readily available to Filipinos everywhere.

Using the Quickplay platform, the network will act a single destination for game events, sports news and information, interactive experiences, and other relevant sports content. It will offer live and on-demand coverage of events to Pinoy sports fans throughout the Philippines, as well as to the millions of Filipinos around the world.

“The versatility and high performance of the Quickplay platform is enabling us to realise our vision of a service that not only presents world-class events to viewers in the Philippines but allows us to scale globally and deliver an immersive experience that allows fans to tailor to their own interests,” commented Cignal TV president Jane Basas.

"Pilipinas Live is designed to provide fans with unparalleled and personalised experiences. It incorporates a variety of feature innovations developed by Quickplay. These innovations include multi-channel viewing, allowing fans to seamlessly switch between different game action views. Additionally, Pilipinas Live offers advanced interactive capabilities, such as in-game polls and quizzes. Soon, it will also introduce a chat functionality. This feature will enable fans to engage with one another and with sports hosts and guests while watching a live game.

“When Cignal TV embarked on the development of Pilipinas Live, they wanted a world class experience that would reflect the prestige of the sporting events it would carry,” added Quickplay COO and co-founder Goutham Vinjamuri, of. “In Pilipinas Live they have created a dynamic service that carries sporting events that command national and international attention, but also has the ability quickly and cost-effectively to create new features that enhance viewing.”
