Vintage Television (earlier known as Vintage Enterprises and Vintage Sports) is a sports-oriented media company and became well known as the TV coverage partner of Philippine Basketball Association from 1982 to 1999. It was absorbed by Philippine media giant Viva Entertainment in 2000.

It was also famed for its weekly boxing show called Blow by Blow during the 1990s, which began the popularity of professional boxer seven-division world champion Manny Pacquiao.

HistoryEdit

In 1978, Vintage Sports was founded by Carlos "Bobong" Velez and Ricky Velez. Their first major program was the coverage of the Philippine Basketball Association games in 1982.[1] The games were initially aired at City2 Television from 1982 to 1983, then later transferred to the Maharlika Broadcasting System (later renamed as the People's Television Network) in 1984. Other shows like Blow by Blow and Hot Stuff began airing in 1994.

Vintage Sports transferred to Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation in 1996 signing a P600-million deal with the network. Vintage Sports was renamed "Vintage Television" in 1998, and produced more programs for IBC. The company was later bought by media giant Viva Entertainment in 1999 following the effects of the 1997 Asian economic crisis.
