Never miss a free throw, a foul, or a three-point shot from your favorite team again by downloading the free PinoyHoops app on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, now supercharged with livestreaming features. Fans can tune in and get play-by-play updates anytime, anywhere, as long as they have an Internet connection on their phones.

“With the new livestreaming feature of the PinoyHoops app, we’re taking sports fans closer to where the PBA action is,” said Mitch Padua, Head for Digital Content at Voyager Innovations, Inc. (Voyager), a subsidiary of Philippine mobile leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart).

To make sure they don’t miss a live game, users will receive alerts for any upcoming basketball game of any team they’re following closely.

With more than 1,000 4G-capable sites delivering up to 42 Mbps of Internet speeds around the country, Smart LTE users will be able to enjoy seamless and uninterrupted viewing of the PBA games through the PinoyHoops app. The livestream, however, is also available for users from other Internet service providers.

Launched in 2013 in time for the 27th International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asia Championship where the Philippine drew second place, the PinoyHoops app has revolutionized the way sports aficionados follow basketball action using their mobile devices.
