GMA is giving its second free-to-air channel a fresh new look as GTV – offering “the news you trust and new shows to love.”
Starting this February 22, GMA News TV will be known as GTV and will carry a full roster of credible news programs from the award-winning teams of GMA News, GMA Regional TV, and DZBB as well as produce shows to cater to its growing young audience.
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 “24 Oras,” anchored by Mel Tiangco, Mike Enriquez, and Vicky Morales and also has its own 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 GMA’s award-winning local news programs across the country.
GTV’s programming for the young and young-at-heart audience started with the high-rating primetime series “The Lost Recipe” headlined by Mikee Quintos and Kelvin Miranda.
The rom-com series “My Fantastic Pag-ibig,” a collection of tales set in present times but infused with fantasy elements, will also air every Saturday.
The all-original comedy game show “Game of the Gens,” hosted by Sef Cadayona and Andre Paras, fuses singing, dancing, and playing games among competitors from different generations.
Chef JR Royol gives a peek into the fascinating process of food preparation in the weekly cooking show “Farm to Table.”
Upcoming GTV shows include “Heartful Café” starring Julie Anne San Jose alongside David Licauco; 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 documentarist Kara David takes viewers on an gastronomical adventure featuring Filipino food in “Pinas Sarap.” Helping viewers manage their finances better in the new normal is Susan Enriquez in “Pera Paraan.” 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.
Join Kara David continues her reporting 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.”
GTV will also air upcoming NCAA seasons.
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.
It is also available abroad via GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International.
