[edit]BackgroundEdit

This secondary channel carries programming from GMA's Q channel in the Philippines and some GMA Network proper's programming.

It was launched February 16, 2008 in Japan and is available in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southern Europe through Orbit Showtime.

In June 2008 it was launched in Australia and New Zealand on UBI World TV. It is now also available in the whole United States via Dish Network and DirecTV.

On November 2, 2009, it was launched in Hawaii via Oceanic Time Warner Cable on channel 686 on ‘ala carte’ basis or packaged with another Tagalog station (GMA Pinoy TV or other channels) for Digital Cable subscribers. [2] [3] [4]

In September 2010, GMA Life TV has 122,000 subscibers while its sister channel, GMA Pinoy TV has a total of 256,000 subscribers. This is based on a report that the Corporate Communications Department of GMA Network has posted.[2]

Recently, as of 3rd Quarter of 2010, GMA Life TV has around 126,000 subscribers. The number of subscribers began to substantially increase when the channel was launched during the early part of this year in other areas such us Florida (via Brighhouse Tampa), Texas (via En-Touch), Hong Kong (via PCCW), and Central California (via Comcast).[3]

By 2011, GMA Life TV will air re-runs of previous GMA shows as Q TV will be re-formatted into GMA News TV. GMA News TV will also be available in the worldwide market.[4] [5]

This did occur from February 20, 2011 onwards, the decision was to run movies temporarily in place of the previously aired programs from the now-ceased Q TV.

On February 28, 2011 for the first time in GMA Worldwide, Inc. history, two programs that started airing on GMA Pinoy TV that is still running with new episodes was switched over to GMA Life TV, where it will then air its new episodes, to occupy free time slots. This then led to replays of other Kapuso shows. The shows included Pinoy MD and Love ni Mister, Love ni Misis. All this will be straightened out onceGMA News TV starts its international operations sometime 2nd to 3rd Quarter of 2011.

In a report published showing GMA Network's revenues for 2010 with a total of PhP 14.299 Billion, GMA Life TV has 125,000 subscribers (an estimated 800,000 viewers count) while GMA Pinoy TV has an accounted 273,000 subscribers (around 1.8 Million viewers). [6] [7]

On March 10, 2011 GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV expanded even more in the United States in Florida. The Florida counties that are part of the extension include Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia. [8]
