DZCE-TV is the flagship station of the Philippine Television Network INC TV (merger of GEM TV and INC Channel on SkyCable). It is currently the UHF television station of Christian Era Broadcasting Service International, a broadcast ministry of the independent Philippine Christian church,[1] the Iglesia ni Cristo. INC TV studios and transmitters are located at Redeemer Street, Milton Hills Subdivision, Brgy. New Era, Quezon City. On October 9, 2012, GEM TV Channel 49 on Free TV was on Test Broadcast and was replaced by INC TV on October 31, 2012. INC TV 49 shows religious programs of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, before its relaunch Deutsche Welle programs were also aired on the channel.

In time for the INC Centennial Year new programs were created for the channel in 2014, which also saw the start of a new tradition - themes for the month, which are also promoted in Net 25 as well since recently.

In 2015, two DZEM radio programs began to be shown on the channel as well. In 2016, INCTV, the newest member of the Anak TV, bags the most number of child-friendly television programs awards (23) in the Anak TV Seal Awards.[2]
