In February 22, the Kapuso Network GMA News is launching as GTV, a free-to-air channel with a fresh new look. The channel stays true to the Network’s commitment to Serbisyong Totoo with a full roster of credible news programs from the award-winning teams of GMA News, GMA Regional TV, and DZBB.
Viewers can still catch the live telecast of Super Radyo DZBB’s hottest reports and commentaries on “Dobol B TV”; as well as Connie Sison and Raffy Tima’s midday newscast “Balitanghali.” GTV likewise simulcasts GMA’s flagship news program “24 Oras,” anchored by GMA News pillars Mel Tiangco, Mike Enriquez, and Vicky Morales.
Meanwhile, the channel’s primetime newscast “State of the Nation (SONA),” bannered by Atom Araullo and Maki Pulido, provides depth and context to the headlines. Local news reports continue to be accessible to more viewers via the “GMA Regional TV Strip” and “GMA Regional TV Weekend News,” which feature the Network’s award-winning local news programs across the country.
Alongside its newscasts, GTV offers fresh programming options for both the young and young-at-heart. This was kickstarted by the high-rating primetime series “The Lost Recipe” headlined by Mikee Quintos and Kelvin Miranda in a fantasy-romance that provides viewers a new taste of Pinoy drama.
Upcoming GTV offerings include the charming story of “Heartful Café,” starring Asia's Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose alongside David Licauco; the much-awaited on-screen tandem of real-life couple Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos in the romance-mystery mini-series “Love You Stranger”; and “FLEX,” which will be bannered by Gen Z stars Mavy Legaspi, Lexi Gonzales, Joaquin Domagoso, and Althea Ablan.
On GTV’s "Happy Hour" strip, Vicky spreads positivity in news magazine show ‘Good News’ while multi-awarded documentarist Kara David takes viewers on an gastronomical adventure featuring Filipino food in “Pinas Sarap.” Global Endorser Gabbi Garcia, on the other hand, brings the latest trends in “IRL” through the stories and experiences that audiences encounter every day. More travel adventures in the new normal also await viewers in the award-winning travel and adventure program “Biyahe ni Drew” hosted by Drew Arellano.
Well-loved public affairs and lifestyle shows continue throughout the week. Join Kara anew as she reports on various issues facing the country in “Brigada.” Susan answers the questions of every Juan in “iJuander” while Tonipet Gaba explores how dining has evolved in the “new normal” in “Pop Talk.” Dishing out fun, food, and adventure are Solenn Heussaff and Gil Cuerva in “Taste Buddies.”
With GNTV currently holding the second spot as the most watched channel after GMA, GTV is slated to complement main channel GMA’s strong nationwide reach. GTV is available via free-to-air, cable, satellite, and on GMA Affordabox and GMA Now as well as other digital receivers. GTV’s exciting programs also air abroad via the Network’s international channels GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International.
