Central Luzon Television (CLTV 36 Metro Central Luzon or sometimes Metro Central Luzon TV 36) is a regional infotainment television network, based in the Central Luzon region in the Philippines. The network is owned and managed by RadioWorld Broadcasting Corporation, a subsidiary of the Laus Group of Companies. The network's offices and studio complex located at 3rd Floor, Corporate Guarantee and Insurance Company Building, Jose Abad Santos Ave., City of San Fernando, Pampanga, while its 10-kilowatt, 68.5 meters high transmitter and station tower is located at C.P. Garcia Street, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga.[1]

This station operates everyday from 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. (PST). Currently, CLTV 36 is the #1 free-to-air regional television channel in the country, and the only regional channel included in the top Cable Channels in the Philippines, based on the recent AGB Nielsen survey.


As one of the youngest terrestrial television stations in the Philippines, it was created when Philippine Congress granted a franchise under Republic Act No. 8219 (lapsed into law) on September 12, 1997 and duly licensed by the NTC dated January 10, 2007.

It was launched on March 19, 2007. In 2008, CLTV 36 relegated into an all-news and infotainment channel. It was on the same year that the station received the first KBP Golden Dove Award (Sonia Soto - Best Provincial Public Affairs Program Host). From 2007, CLTV 36 pioneered the extensive and most updated coverage of national and local elections and natural disasters that hit the region including typhoons, northeast monsoon, among others. In 2013, CLTV 36 launched their entertainment programming thru the StarMill Talent Search.

CLTV 36 Metro Central Luzon focuses on a centralized media coverage from news, public affairs and entertainment programming, covering all the provinces of Metro Central Luzon. These are the provinces of Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Bataan, Tarlac, Zambales, Aurora and its homebase, Pampanga. CLTV 36 can also be seen in some areas in Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Ilocos Region, and Cordillera Administrative Region thru a better, wider, crisp and stronger signal reception from its transmitter in Clark Freeport Zone. The tower was inaugurated in December 9, 2015.

CLTV 36 Metro Central Luzon is the official broadcaster of the Giant Lantern Festival every December from 2008 and the United Central Luzon Athletic Association games since 2015.
