GTV (Good TV) 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 was launched on February 22, 2021, replacing GMA News TV on its flagship station, UHF Channel 27 Metro Manila and its provincial relay stations. It is a sixth overall secondary television brand of GMA Network since its inception in 1995 as Citynet Television.
On August 27, 1995, GMA inaugurated its first ultra-high-frequency channel, Citynet Television (or simply known as 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. 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 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 and GMA. This only lasted for two years, and it closed 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.
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 March 18, 2007, QTV renamed itself as Q.
This logo was introduced on May 29, 2010; similar to that of Q's 1998 logo.
GMA News TV
Q was rebranded as GMA News TV on February 28, 2011 as a news channel served for its programs by GMA News and Public Affairs. This logo was only used on News TV Quick Response Team until it was used again for GTV's run of News TV Live.
The 2002 GMA logo would be added to the logo shortly after. The logo was shown on February 28, 2011.
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 version remained and continue to use the "GMA News TV" brand as well as its international variant of this logo.
After 9 years, GMA News TV was rebranded as GTV on February 22, 2021, carrying news, entertainment and sports programs, similar to its earlier incarnations as Citynet Television and Q. The 'G' sets has closely resemblance to GMA's 1992 logo. The channel's name should not be confused with the 1970s branding of what is now People's Television Network.
