RJTV 29 (DZRJ-TV) is a UHF, free to air all-female and lifestyle television station, owned and operated by Rajah Broadcasting Network, Inc. owned by Ramon "RJ" Jacinto. RJTV 29 broadcast in the greater Metro Manila area, and is on a ‘must carry basis’ on cable service providers. This station's broadcast facility are located at Ventures I Bldg., Makati Ave. cor. Gen. Luna St., Makati City and Ground floor, Worldwide Corporate Center, EDSA cor. Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong City. With transmitter at Brgy. San Roque, Sumulong Highway, Antipolo City, province of Rizal. RJTV limited its operations from 6:00 AM to 1:00 AM.


RJTV 29 began its test broadcast in April 1993, with station produced programming which was entertaining mix of music oriented shows, local news, talk show, and the very first local Home TV Shopping program.

In 1995, RJTV 29 went into niche programming and timeless television series, shopping and animation programs for children. At the time, the target market was kids during the day, and baby boomers at night. In 1997, due to the emergence of UHF competitors such as Studio 23 (now known as ABS-CBN Sports+Action) and CTV-31 (now known as BEAM Channel 31 which is previously sister affiliated by Solar Entertainment Corporation under the networks The Game Channel, CHASE, and the recent Jack City), RJTV 29 went from traditional TV programming to specialized programs such as direct response companies and religious sectors. RJTV 29 recognized the advent of specialized television – niche markets that identify specific needs of certain sectors.

On January 1, 2008, as a result of a blocktime agreement of Solar Entertainment Corporation with various terrestrial networks, RJTV has started carrying shows from Solar's 2nd Avenue channel although during some days of the week, it may pre-empt 2nd Avenue programming for its own programmes.[1] [2]

However, on September 9, 2012, RJTV 29 stops broadcasting together with 3ABN/Hope Channel Philippines Channel 45, way though it is still broadcasting via cable networks only. It was found out that this station is upgrading its transmitter and somehow returned on-air at exactly 6am on November 21, 2012.
