On August 27, 1995, GMA inaugurated its first ultra-high-frequency channel through DWDB-TV (channel 27) in Metro Manila, becoming the first UHF television channel operated by a major broadcast network in the Philippines. In April 1999, Citynet Television ceased its commercial operations and was later reformatted into a local music channel.
In 1999, Entertainment Music Channel (EMC) was GMA's first music channel. after Citynet closed down due to high programming costs and low ratings. This channel only lasted for a few months, until GMA signed a leased broadcast agreement with Hong Kong-based Star TV to transmit a localised music station, under the name of Channel [V] Philippines.
Channel [V] Philippines
On December 15, 1999, Star leased the Ciynet's airtime to launch Channel [V] Philippines through EMC. Part of the strategy was to localize Channel [V] with programs produced locally by Star and GMA. This did not last, and it closed down on July 25, 2001.
In November 2005, GMA established an agreement with ZOE Broadcasting Network, where in exchange for providing updated equipment to their facilities, GMA would be able to operate and set programming for DZOE (channel 11).
Programming would return to DWDB in 2004 as a repeater station of DZOE, which served as GMA's flagship station. On November 11, 2005, it was officially launched as QTV (Quality Television), broadcasting imported sports, entertainment, news, public affairs, dramas, and lifestyle-oriented programming.
On March 18, 2007, QTV renamed itself as Q.
