    VOLLEYBALL fans are clamoring for the live broadcast of the coming Shakey’s V-League Season 10 First Conference that kicks off on April 7 at The Arena in San Juan.

    A number of them made the appeal on social networking sites in reaction to the report that the country’s premier commercial volleyball league is staying on AKTV-13, but will air the games on a delayed basis.

    This developed as officials of Shakey’s V-League confirmed that ABS-CBN Sports has indeed expressed interest in getting the broadcast of its games over Studio 23.

    ABS-CBN Sports was responsible for the coverage of the successful UAAP Season 75 women’s volleyball tournament.

    Fans responded by writing their comments on Twitter and on’s comments box.

    Some fans have made their feelings known on Twitter with the hashtag #SVLonStudio23, which became a trending topic on a hot Maundy Thursday.

    The V-League games had previously been aired on a delayed basis by its former television partners, but the rising popularity of the sport has seen fans expressing their preference to view the games live on the small screen.

    Some fans said Studio 23 would have been a better choice due in large part to the quality of the coverage of the UAAP tournament.

    A few others also lauded the league for staying with AKTV since it has better signal reception in most parts of the country.

    Here are a few comments on Twitter and on the comments section:

    @alexiscerado Ten years is always special, and that's Shakey's V-League this year. #SVLonStudio23

    @RobiandGretchen  I won't eat at Shakey's anymore if this won't happen. Haha! #SVLonStudio23

    @DziLoversOf We want #SVLonStudio23  pleasee!! Paano kaming TFC subscribers? Walang AKTV sa TFC.. :|

    @ADMU_WVT V-League games will be on a delayed telecast basis on AKTV. No choice but to watch the games Live at San Juan Arena. #OBF

    @AlyValdezTeam V-League officials, hear us just for once. We wanna watch the 3-peat championship of the ALE with good quality & coverage. #SVLonStudio23

    @crazychardieC  #SVLonStudio23 is trending. I hope Shakey's V-league would be shown on the free TV channel that has the 'better' reception. Nakaka-excite.

    @janniebluegreen Wow. V-League just turned down Studio 23's offer. Intense. Hahaha. Gonna stick with AKTV.

    @vhinmanabat Buti na lang sa AKTV Ch. 13 daw i-televise ang Shakey's V-league Season 10, atleast mapapanood! wala kaming Ch.23 eh. :P Yesss! #GoUST

    Boring – ano bayan!! mapipilitan kng manuod sa san juan arena pra live!! tsss..!!! pano nmn ung mga nsa province na gusto manuod ng live?. kailangan png lumuwas ng manila pra makapanuod!!! ok lng nmn kung sa AKTV ipapalabas bsta LIVE!!! ANG KORNY TALAGA!!

    HATER2 – I do not understand why they chose to go with AKTV when ABS-CBN Sports expressed interest already. Unless there is an agreement between AKTV and the League, this is a no-brainer! Say goodbye to strong publicity and audience shares, SVL. What a joke.
