Can’t watch the FIBA Basketball World Cup games live? Don’t worry! You can still catch the action and tune in to the thrilling matches for free via the Smart LiveStream App.

FIBA global partner Smart will offer free access to all the games from August 25 to September 10.

The Smart LiveStream App—downloadable on the App Store and Google Play Store with no monthly subscription required—will enable Smart subscribers immerse in all the excitement and action anytime, anywhere from the convenience of their screen.

To watch all 92 games, Smart subscribers simply have to connect to a Smart mobile data, TNT, or PLDT Wi-Fi while using the Smart LiveStream App.

The  Smart LiveStream App is best enjoyed with Gilas Power 399, which comes with 48GB for all sites and apps, and up to 30GB access to FIBA Basketball World Cup games on the app.

“Now is the best time for Filipino basketball fans to be a Smart subscriber,” said Alfredo S. Panlilio, PLDT and Smart President and 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 can witness and rally behind Gilas Pilipinas, bannered by Utah Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson, as well as Team USA and other basketball superstars as they battle it out for FIBA supremacy. 

Watching the FIBA games on the Smart LiveStream app is part of Smart’s efforts to bring the best basketball experiences to subscribers. 

Smart also teamed up with its technology partners Huawei and Ericsson to expand and permanently optimize its LTE and 5G mobile network coverage across all three venues of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, including the Smart-Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, and the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
