Jack TV is a cable and satellite television network in the Philippines owned by Solar Entertainment Corporation, test launched on May 2005, officially debuting on July 12, 2005. It offers Western comedy, animation, drama series and reality shows, such as The CW, CBS, FOX, NBC, Bravo, FX, Syfy, E!, ABC, A&E, and Oxygen. The station was formed as part of the discontinuation of Solar USA and its split into two networks. Comedy, drama, and reality shows moved to Jack TV, and the other programming was maintained on the new network C/S (now Solar TV). However, when Solar TV was replaced by Talk TV (now Solar News Channel, renamed to 9TV), Jack TV reverted to its Solar USA programming while maintaining some of the programming that made it a staple in its early years. On October 20, 2012, Solar Entertainment launched its secondary channel Jack CITY on BEAM Channel 31 (now broadcast on cable since September 1, 2014), replacing CHASE.
