GTV is a Philippine free-to-air television network owned and operated by the Citynet Network Marketing and Productions Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of GMA Network, Inc. It is a sixth overall secondary television brand of GMA Network since its inception in 1995 as Citynet Television.

Citynet Television

1995–1999

Citynet 27

On August 27, 1995, GMA inaugurated its first ultra-high-frequency channel, Citynet Television (or simply Citynet 27) through DWDB-TV Channel 27 in Metro Manila, becoming the first UHF television channel operated by a major broadcast network in the Philippines (through its wholly owned subsidiary, Citynet Network Marketing and Productions). In April 1999, Citynet Television ceased its commercial operations and was later reformatted into a local music channel because of its high cost for operating the station as well as its intense competition with another UHF station owned by GMA's competitor, Studio 23 of ABS-CBN (later known as ABS-CBN S+A).

In 1999, Entertainment Music Channel (EMC) was launched as GMA's first music channel after Citynet closed down because of high programming costs and low ratings.

Channel [V] Philippines

1999–2001

On December 15, 1999, STAR TV Network leased the airtime of Citynet to launch Channel [V] Philippines through EMC. Part of the strategy was to localize Channel [V] with programs produced locally by STAR TV and GMA. This only lasted for two years, closing down on July 25, 2001 because of its intense competition with MTV Philippines (now known as One Sports) of Nation Broadcasting Corporation owned by PLDT's MediaQuest Holdings, the same company which purchased a controlling stake in GMA Network earlier at the same year (later sold back to its previous owners in 2006), leading to another reason of its shutdown: conflict of interest.

QTV

Programming would return to DWDB-TV Channel 27 in 2004 as a repeater station of DZBB-TV Channel 7, 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 after GMA made its 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-TV Channel 11 owned by ZOE, making it as a main station for QTV. Channel 27 would soon stop airing as a repeater station for Channel 11 in 2007 and was eventually used for trials of GMA's digital television broadcast.

On May 31, 2019, GMA Network ended its agreement with ZOE Broadcasting Network, because of GMA and ZOE's increasing payments, accompanying the network's decreased values. As a result starting from June 4, 2019, GMA News TV transferred to DWDB-TV Channel 27 owned by Citynet Network Marketing and Productions, a channel space once occupied by Citynet 27, EMC and Channel [V].

GMA's digital broadcast was moved from Channel 27 to Channel 15 later. Meanwhile, DZOE-TV Channel 11 temporarily stopped its broadcast soon after that until its return on the airwaves by October 10, 2020, this time carrying A2Z, after ZOE made its blocktime agreement with GMA's former rival, ABS-CBN. Despite it is being rebranded to GTV, its international counterpart remained and continued using the GMA News TV brand as well as its international variant of this logo.
