Stream the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Smart LiveStream App for FREE!
The Smart LiveStream App, which is available for free download in the App Store and Google Play Store, will provide Smart subscribers a complete homecourt advantage to witness all of the thrill and drama of this legendary spectacle whenever and wherever they choose.
To watch all 92 games, Smart subscribers only need to connect to a Smart mobile data, TNT, or PLDT WiFi network while using the Smart LiveStream App.
The Smart LiveStream App works best with Gilas Power 399, which includes 48 GB for all sites and apps, as well as up to 30 GB for FIBA Basketball World Cup games on the app.
THE BEST TIME TO BE SMART
“Now is the best time for Filipino basketball fans to be a Smart subscriber,” said Alfredo S. Panlilio, PLDT and Smart President, CEO, and head of the FIBA local organizing committee.
“With Smart, we are empowering our basketball-loving nation to make the most of our country’s historic hosting of the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Enjoy virtual front-row seats, as if you are there, to the world’s biggest stage in basketball by downloading the Smart Livestream app,” he added.
Subscribers and fans may watch and support Gilas Pilipinas, led by Utah Jazz’s shooting/point guard Jordan Clarkson, as well as Team USA and other basketball players as they compete for FIBA supremacy.
Clarkson and Slovenia’s Luka Doncic said in a recent FIBA ad, “Once you put on your country’s flag-bearing jersey … nothing else matters.”
WORLD CLASS MOBILE NETWORK EXPERIENCE
Watching the FIBA games on the Smart LiveStream app is part of Smart’s efforts to provide subscribers with the best basketball experiences possible, powered by the Philippines’ fastest and best mobile network, as cited by global network analytics firm Ookla for three consecutive reporting periods – in Q1-Q2 2022, Q3-Q4 2022, and Q1-Q2 2023.
In addition, Smart collaborated with its technology partners Huawei and Ericsson to expand and permanently optimize its LTE and 5G mobile network coverage across all three FIBA Basketball World Cup venues, including the Smart-Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, and the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
Smart subscribers who go to the venues can enjoy a world-class mobile experience not only during the much-anticipated games but also during the largest concerts and post-tournament events.
