Q (formerly QTV, Quality TeleVision) is a defunct commercial television station in the Philippines and it is owned and operated by GMA Network Inc. An airtime block agreement between GMA Network Inc. and ZOE Broadcasting Network started its commercial operation in November 2005 using DZOE-TV channel 11 frequency. Q network studios are located at 22nd Floor, Strata 2000 Building, Emerald Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City and at the GMA Network Center in Epifanio delos Santos corner Timog Avenues, Diliman, Quezon City. With transmitters at Barangay Culiat, Tandang Sora, Quezon City. Q's programming lineup features mostly American dramas, and other lifestyle shows. On February 20, 2011, Q ceased its commercial operation to give way to its sister channel, GMA News TV.



The country's commercial television network began operations on November 23, 1963 as Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC) Channel 11. It was renamed Delta Broadcasting System (DBS-11) in 1980 followed by switching into color TV in 1974. Following the People Power Revolution in 2001, it was rebranded as Quality Television (QTV).

On March 26, 2004, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed Republic Act 7306 turning QTV Network into a public commercial broadcasting corporation known formally as Quality Television Network, Inc.

On November 11, 2005, after years of being off the air, GMA leased the airtime of Zoe Broadcasting Network's flagship station, DZOE-TV 11, in exchange of an upgrade to ZOE's facilities and airing ZOE-TV produced programs. Channel 27 became a rebroadcast feed of QTV, Quality Television.<ref>GMA welcomes QTV, their newest 'kapuso'. ClickTheCity.Com (November 11, 2005).

City Television

Main article: DWBW-TV

GMA Network decided to expand its business into UHF programming in 1995 with Citynet Television 27. Poised to compete with ABS-CBN's recently launched Studio 23, the new station also aired popular American programming. In 1999, Star TV leased the airtime of Citynet Television to launch Channel [V] Philippines. In 2001, however, Channel [V] Philippines was discontinued when the PLDT (owner of MTV Philippines before) bought a controlling stake in GMA. Citynet reverted to being an independent station after the discontinuation.

However on March 1, 2009, Channel V Philippines is now under the new management with Makisig Network (now TVXtreme Broadcasting) as a new network partner with STAR TV. It was successfully music channel launch last June 1, 2009.<ref>Makisig launches Channel V Philippines retrieve via www.stir.ph 04-16-2009</ref>

Blocktime agreement

In the first quarter of 2005, Citynet leased the airtime of ZOE's flagship station, DZOE-TV 11, in exchange of upgrading the facilities of ZOE and airing ZOE-TV produced programs on early Monday mornings. DWBW Channel 27 became a repeater of QTV. Although in some areas in Metro Manila, QTV can be seen clearer in channel 27 compared to channel 11 especially in areas like Makati and Pasay (Where UHF signals can penetrate buildings).

Meron akong pangarap na tutuparin
Lahat ay gagawin para sa mahal na layunin
Sa araw-araw may minamahal
Munting ngiting nakakatunaw
Laging nagpapasalamat sa maligayang ala-ala

Kwento natin ‘to
Ligaya, Pag-asa
Kwento natin ‘to
Nagpapaikot ng mundo
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV

Merong magandang bukas na tinatanaw
Meron akong kabuhayan na pinaghihirapan
Sa sulyap niya kinikilig ako
Bumibilis ang tibok ng puso
Di magbabago ang pagmamahal
Tapat sa pangako habang buhay

Kwento natin ‘to
Kabuhayan, Kayamanan
Kwento natin ‘to
Pag-ibig, Pagsuyo
Nagpapaganda sa mundo
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV

Sa hirap o ginhawa
Nananalig magpakailanman
Magandang bituin magniningning balang araw
Sa pagsisikapin kong bukas ang sisikat
Munting pag-iisip umaapaw sa pag-asa

Kwento natin ‘to
Pananalig, Pagsisikap
Kwento natin ‘to
Kapalaran, Kinabukasan
Nagbibigay buhay sa mundo
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV
Kwento natin ‘to, QTV
Kwento natin ‘to!
