DXKC-TV channel 31, is a television station of Broadcast Enterprises and Affiliated Media, Inc. In Davao City. Its studios and transmitter are located at Unit 308, 3/F, GB CAM Building, Alvarez cor. Monteverde st., Davao City. DXKC-TV is a relay of Metro Manila's DWKC-TV.
It was started as Cinema Television (or CTV-31) in 1995. It was also the first UHF station to be inspired by a movie television. And on year 1997, it had its broadcast rights form E!, an American-cable network channel that features fashion and lifestyle show, which is lately known as E! Philippines. But in the year 2003 RMN decided to cancel its operation to TV network, citing financial constraints and poor ratings.
On July 3, 2011, UHF 31 in Davao and all RMN TV stations nationwide returned as a test broadcast, as the frequency was occupied by Broadcast Enterprises and Affiliated Media, following the latter was bought up by Bethlehem Holdings, Inc. (funded by Globe Telecom's Group Retirement Fund) from RMN. Under new ownership, BEAM began its affiliation partnership with Solar Entertainment Corporation.
On June 28, 2013, Solar Entertainment was forced to reduce its Free TV broadcast to 18 hours a day on BEAM in compliance with the National Telecommunications Commission's guidelines. However, it still continues on cable networks 24 hours a day.
On September 1, 2014, BEAM Channel 31 and its provincial affiliates ended its partnership with Solar, as BEAM prepares its ISDB-T digital television.
