Solar Entertainment launched Solar TV in the early 2000s, which was later renamed to Solar USA ("Ultimate in Suspense as Action") and then to USA. USA was split into two channels, Jack TV and Crime/Suspense, in 2005.
Solar TV launched last November 28, 2009 on RPN at 11:00am with a slogan It's A Bright New World. In October 31, 2010, it changed some of its programming content to English/Tagalog with a new slogan Kung Saan Lahat Panalo!.
As Solar Entertainment Corporation buys RPN, Solar TV was morphed into a corporate television arm of Solar Entertainment and launched an all talk/news channel Talk TV in March 2, 2011, co-owned by Solar TV itself and SBN while ETC replace Solar TV on now-privatized RPN. Talk TV later changed its name to Solar News Channel on October 30, 2012 and transferred to RPN by December 1, 2013.
However, Solar Entertainment chair Wilson Tieng announced that the ALC Group of Companies of former Ambassador Antonio Cabangon-Chua, took over Solar TV Network, Inc., as well as its stake on RPN.  Solar TV Network reflected the change of ownership by the transfer of ETC return to SBN on November 30, 2013. SNC to RPN on December 1, followed by shedding off the Solar branding in SNC's programs, and finally the rebranding of Solar News Channel into 9TV on August 23, 2014 .
