GMA News TV (or simply GNTV) is a news and lifestyle oriented channel in the Philippines. It is owned and operated by GMA Network Inc.through its GMA News and Public Affairs organization. Commercial broadcast started on February 28, 2011 on the frequency previously occupied by its sister station, now the defunct Q on local VHF 11 and UHF 27 in Metropolitan Manila; and it is broadcast through its relay and affiliate television stations in the Philippines.[1][2] [3] GMA News TV is generally watched as a free-to-air news and lifestyle oriented channel in the Philippines. The channel is available in most satellite and cable TV systems throughout the Philippines. Internationally, GMA Network Inc. plans to launch GMA News TV and will be also available through satellite and cable TV system worldwide. It would be the third international channel of GMA Network Inc., together with GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV. Originally, local VHF channel 11 in Metropolitan Manila was a joint venture of two religious groups in the Philippines; the Jesus Is Lord Church of Eddie Villanueva and El Shaddai of Mike Velarde. However, dispute over the ownership of the station arises and leads to a congressional franchise given to Eddie Villanueva. In early years, Zoe Broadcasting Network produces programs mostly in religious content until in 1999, Zoe Broadcasting Network entered an agreement with Enternet to rebroadcast parts CNBC Asia programming for its morning and afternoon block until the arrangement ended in 2000.

On November 11, 2005, GMA Network Inc. entered a memorandum of agreement with the owners of Zoe Broadcasting Network and leased the airtime of its flagship station, DZOE and launches Quality Television on local VHF channel 11, in exchange of network’s facilities upgrade and airing of its locally produced programs. On March 18, 2007, Quality Television rebranded to Q focusing on lifestyle programming. On May 29, 2010, Q expanded its programming to cater male audiences. On February 7, 2011, GMA Network Inc. announced plans to launch an all news and lifestyle oriented channel in the Philippines and transformed its Q network into a news channel. On February 20, 2011, Q (formerly Quality Television) ceased commercial operation and started the test trial of GMA News TV. On February 28, 2011, GMA Network Inc. officially launched its news channel.
