5 Plus Sport New Frequncy On Amos 3/7 @ 4° West
5 Plus (stylized as 5PLUS) was a commercial sports terrestrial television network in the Philippines.
Named after its parent station, 5 Plus served as complementary channel for 5 with its programs primarily produced by its sports division, ESPN5. 5 Plus was launched on January 13, 2019, as AksyonTV, a Filipino-language news and public affairs channel launched by TV5 in 2011, bifurcated into two new separate channels (the other one being One PH on Cignal)
However 14 months after its launch, on March 7, 2020, 5 Plus ceased its broadcasting to give way for One Sports.
Prior to January 13, 2019, the network was known as AksyonTV, a 24-hour news channel launched by TV5 Network (then known as ABC Development Corporation) in February 2011 after taking over the airtime of NBC television and radio stations In 2010 (TV5 Network was acquired by NBC’s parent MediaQuest Holdings from the Cojuangco / Media Prima group earlier that March). Its original programming included simulcasts from Radyo5 and independently produced newscasts and information programs from News5.
However, in June 2013, AksyonTV began to carry over the sports programs from AKTV, a primetime and weekend block of Sports5 airing over government-sequestered Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC), after TV5 decided not to renew its agreement with IBC due to high airtime costs and low ratings. This move was heavily criticized by viewers for putting news programs and coverage on-hold. Such move, as well as losses and cost-cutting measures by TV5 Network, forces all news and current affairs programs produced by AksyonTV to be cancelled, leaving Radyo5 simulcasts intact (which in turn, is hampered by the addition of home shopping programs). Cignal, a sister company of TV5, soon launched its 24-hour satellite news channel, One News which combines the news content of the media companies owned by MediaQuest, including News5 on May 28, 2018, replacing News5-owned Bloomberg TV Philippines
