One Sports[a] is a Philippine Free-to-air television network owned by Nation Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) a sister networks of TV5 Network, Inc. and Cignal TV, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of MediaQuest Holdings, Inc. media arm of PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund. One Sports is currently carried through analog DWNB UHF TV Channel 41 in Metro Manila, other relay owned and affiliate stations, and digital terrestrial subchannel nationwide. It operates Monday to Saturday from 8:00 AM to 12:00 MN and Sunday from 6:00 AM to 12:00 MN.

One Sports is the second MediaQuest channel launched under the One branding (presently known as the One Network Media Group), along with the English-language news channel One News, Filipino-language news/talk channel One PH, lifestyle portal One Life, and now-defunct premium entertainment channel One Screen.[1]

History

Prior to the launch, it was then known as 5 Plus, a dedicated sports channel launched on January 13, 2019 replacing AksyonTV.[2][3]

On March 8, 2020, One Sports was launched as a free-to-air television channel by Cignal TV (which owns the said brand on its own cable channel) and TV5, with TV5 Network's sports division adopted the same branding coinciding with the start of the 2020 PBA season.[4]

From March 30 to June 14, 2020, the terrestrial network temporarily suspended its broadcast due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the enforcement of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.[5]

Following the closure of ABS-CBN Sports after 70 congressmen denied ABS-CBN Corporation's new franchise, One Sports replaced certain programming such as the NFL, the NCAA (US) and Philippine Super Liga with some sports whose rights were previously held by ABS-CBN Sports, such as the NBA, ONE Championship, UAAP and Premier Volleyball League.
