CTV 31 (Cinema Television)
On October 31, 1993, Radio Mindanao Network became the second radio-based network to launch a TV station called CTV-31. It is also the first UHF free-to-air TV station to be inspired by the format of a cable movie channel.
On September 2000, CTV-31 leased the entire channel blocktime and changed its name to E! Philippines and limited its broadcast from 6pm-12mn. However on June 1, 2003, RMN had to cease their operations on TV due to financial constraints and poor television ratings, but continued elsewhere.
