Written by Contributor

After its recent launch as the go-to sports channel for a younger and more engaged free TV audience, 5 Plus will now amplify its gaming content by introducing a dynamic set of esports and gaming talents to help navigate viewers as well as solidify the channel as the home of gaming in the Philippines.

For the first-ever esports franchise league in the country called The Nationals, a full-scale commentary team made up of the best local esports casters will follow the action, game after game.

For the ongoing DOTA 2 leg, Sam Nopueto (Wolf), Aries Alejandro (Kalbz), Neil de Guzman (Midnight), Jaz Comoda (Heneral Tuna), and Rain Manaig (Rain) will be at the helm.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Tekken leg will feature Ron Muyot (Hot-E), Poch Estrada (_pochspice), Paul Fuentes (Poru), and Pica Lozano (Pica); While Manjean Faldas (Manjean), Shin Boo Ponferrada (Sh1n Boo), Gian Bernardino (Ilustrado), Em Dangla (Kaisaya) and Lhea Lei Pelaez (Yasumeow) will highlight the action for Mobile Legends.

The Nationals esports correspondents Eileen Shi, Alyzza Taylor, Mika Fabella, Tonie Moreno, and Dan ‘Leo’ Cubangay will join the casters in each game day as the league’s version of courtside reporters. With their mix of hosting and reporting backgrounds from both sports and gaming programs, the correspondents will be in the middle of all the action, giving updates and reactions straight from the trenches.

The Nationals will be aired every Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 4PM to 7PM, and Saturday & Sundays 10AM to 1PM.

And finally, 5 Plus introduces six new VJs that will anchor the channel’s gaming content: Gino Quillamor takes time off from his DJ duties (and his PC) to get in front of the camera for 5 Plus; Host and commercial model Bea Benedicto brings in her own brand of energy; And content creator and TV personality Kim Cruz takes on VJ duties for a new and exciting audience.

Brand presenter and former MTV VJ Jodie Tarasek may be new to the 5 Plus family, but is no doubt an avid gamer herself; Host and commercial model Ariana Conechado will make 5 Plus her next stop; And host and Mobile Legends streamer RJ Arroyo takes on a bigger and more animated gaming audience.

Catch them throughout the day as they talk about all things esports and gaming only on 5 Plus.
