For years, ABS-CBN has been the official broadcaster of the UAAP through its Sport + Action channel

MANILA, Philippines – Past and present UAAP athletes expressed their support for ABS-CBN after it was ordered to shut down by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) on Tuesday, May 5. 

The athletes took to social media their reactions following the cease and desist order issued by the NTC to ABS-CBN, which has been the official broadcaster of the UAAP through the Sports + Action channel.
