Start of GMA Pinoy TV (2004–2005)
GMA Pinoy TV was first launched in Japan in March 2005. It was later launched in several parts of the United States in the same year, such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and the states of the East Coast.
The official GMA Pinoy TV launch in America happened in San Francisco on 23 July 2005 and was aired on SOP the following Sunday, 31 July 2005. The event was attended by thousands of Filipinos eager to see once again the stars of GMA for whom they have not seen for so long. The channel later spread out in the entire country of the US by August 2005. Since then GMA Pinoy TV started to reach out to farther countries globally.
A concert was held with GMA stars to promote GMA Pinoy TV. Graphics, on the other hand, were released with the so-called Filipino colors—red, blue and yellow. It was also seen around December that GMA Pinoy TV, every Christmas season, will change its graphic on-screen for the Christmas season. The logo also was seen in the upper right and left corners at varied times. It was settled in 2007 that the logo will be seen in the upper right corner.
2007– GMA Pinoy TV had a huge success and was known better for the program MariMar. So, due to the success of the program, GMA Pinoy TV once changed graphics. They ran from 2007 – October 2010.
2008– GMA Pinoy TV was also known for the program Dyesebel. GMA Pinoy TV, due to the success of the program, had launched a billboard in Daly City, which was there for the entirety of the show. Its purpose was to promote the program and GMA Pinoy TV in general.
2009– GMA Pinoy TV has 225,000 subscribers as of September 2009. An associated second channel, GMA Life TV, was successfully launched in March 2008, it already counts 109,000 subscribers. The percent of subscribers has gone up 34% according to GMA New Media, Inc.
An amount of PhP 253 million for the 1st Quarter of 2010's revenues (compared to PhP 183 million of 2009) has been posted in the Annual Stockholders Meeting of GMA Network for GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV.
In May 2010, GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Network, Inc. in general, was acclaimed for their performance of covering the Elections. GMA Pinoy TV started airing the live coverage 9 May until the Election ended.
GMA Pinoy TV has had some delays in its shows, specifically the dramas being aired worldwide. Before, in its early years, some dramas were delayed up to a month but as time passed, it receded and as of 2011, the ratio is early primetime & primetime dramas in the Philippines are two-days delayed and afternoon dramas are three-days delayed. The week of 2–7 August 2010, GMA Pinoy TV ran a "back-to-back episodes" block for the afternoon drama then Trudis Liit, starring Jillian Ward. The show was nine-days delayed so GMA International decided to lessen the delay and have a standard mentioned above, as of 2011.
In September 2010, GMA Pinoy TV has a total of 256,000 subscribers while its sister channel, GMA Life TV has 122,000 subscribers. This is based on a report that the Corporate Communications Department of GMA Network has posted.
On 10 October 2010 (otherwise known was 10-10-10), GMA Pinoy TV changed graphics with a theme that recognizes and is towards Pinoys all over the world. It also has a globe symbolizing how far GMA Pinoy TV has gone since the start.

Also, for Christmas 2010, this is the first time that GMA Pinoy TV had another Christmas slogan besides the GMA Network Christmas 2010 Slogan: Isang Pagkilala sa Puso ng Pilipino Ngayong Pasko. The GMA Pinoy TV Christmas slogan is Isang Maligayang at Masaganang Paskong Pinoy, Kapuso!.

On 17 September 2013, GMA Pinoy TV had experienced technical problems and thus a three-hour delay was caused in its programming schedule, which received negative feedback from the viewers as they were not warned beforehand. The management had appealed to the viewers by saying that such was not intentional and was accidental because of technical/conversion issues. The following day, 18 September 2013, the programming staff of GMA Pinoy TV was prompted to change the programming schedule, effectively removing the airings of Eat Bulaga and 24 Oras just a few hours after its original broadcast. Viewers are still hoping for the programming of GMA Pinoy TV to revert to its original state, which most viewers preferred.
On 29 September 2013, a fire hit the basement of GMA Network's Building. The fire was put out in less than 50 minutes as the fire correspondents responded immediately. The fire affected the power supply of GMA Network and thus further affected the normal operations of GMA Network, including the operations of GMA Pinoy TV as well as GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International. During the fire, temporary programming was aired consisting of replays of shows from the weekend. The fire had caused disappointment and inconvenience on the part of the viewers/subscribers. However, the management of GMA International assured its subscribers that indeed the appropriate measures are being taken and that normal operations are hoped to be restored at the soonest possible time.
On 1 October 2013, programming had slowly been restored. Subscribers reported Unang Hirit, 24 Oras, The Ryzza Mae Show and Eat Bulaga among others to be updated and though slightly off their appropriate timeslot, still was managed to be aired over on GMA Pinoy TV. Also, My Husband's Lover aired back-to-back episodes and thus only on 1 October did it become the first TV series of GMA Drama to air the same episode that aired in the Philippines on the same day that it aired on GMA Pinoy TV. Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas and Kahit Nasaan Ka Man followed and also had back-to-back episodes aired; these "back-to-back" episode appeared to the viewers as hints that the primetime dramas will begin to air on same-day episode basis. However, this idea was dismissed on 2 October 2013 when these shows had re-aired the "catched up" episodes and thus, the primetime dramas were confirmed to be on a one-episode delay basis again. The network's afternoon dramas, Prinsesa ng Buhay Ko, Magkano Ba ang Pag-ibig? and Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy, are still airing on a one-episode delay basis and were not affected by the "catching up" that happened on 1 October. The only afternoon drama left airing on a two-episode delay basis is Mga Basang Sisiw.
On 5 October 2013, GMA Pinoy TV updated its on-air title screen, in celebration of its 8 Years of Bringing Global Pinoys Closer to Home.
On 30 November 2013, GMA Pinoy TV updated its upper-right logo to a Christmas-themed one, alongside GMA's Christmas Theme for 2013, "Sundan Natin ang Bituin Pabalik sa Kanyang Piling". The following day, 1 December 2013, the on-air title screen and graphics were updated.
On 17 December 2013, The Ryzza Mae Show and Eat Bulaga were restored to their late night timeslots in the North American feed. It was noted that subscribers continually pleaded GMA Pinoy TV to restore these shows to their late night timeslots as this is convenient for many working subscribers who are only able to watch at that time. After three months and a day of requests, the management finally granted such and the shows were restored to their respective and consecutive late night timeslots. In addition to their restored timeslots, the two shows air as well right after their restored timeslots and so, overall, The Ryzza Mae Show and Eat Bulaga air four times on GMA Pinoy TV daily.
The New Year Countdown aired on a three-hour delay basis on GMA Pinoy TV on 31 December 2013.
From 31 December 2013 to 13 January 2014, GMA Pinoy TV had a special airing of Titser. This was in the timeslot previously occupied by Genesis and Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas, as in the Philippines the timeslots of the two shows were replaced by Hollywood blockbusters.
The GMA Pinoy TV on-screen graphics and logo returned to its regular version on 5 January 2014, marking the end of the Christmas season.
GMA Pinoy TV began inserting English subtitles in certain shows like Wish Ko Lang, Pepito Manaloto: Ang Tunay na Kuwento and Magpakailanman on Saturday, 11 January 2014. This is part of GMA Pinoy TV's efforts to expand its audience reach so that not only those who can speak and understand Tagalog can watch GMA Pinoy TV but also those who cannot.
On 22 April 2014, GMA Pinoy TV began to air Full House, the first Tagalog-dubbed Koreanovela aired on this channel. The certain shows with English subtitles are noted in the next section "Currently broadcast".
Basta Every Day, Happy! was supposed to premiere on 12 May 2014 (in some territories like the US on the evening of 11 May 2014) and air throughout its entire duration on GMA Pinoy TV but the programming department of GMA International, GMA's international subsidiary, decided to move the show over to GMA Life TV as it adheres more to GMA Life TV's overall theme as a lifestyle channel as well as the show is a replacement for Kusina Master, so the programming department had seen that the move was done rightfully so.
On 26 May 2014, GMA Pinoy TV began to air Niño with no episode delay whatsoever, thus premiering on the same day. This is a historical event for GMA Pinoy TV as never have GMA Drama series aired without episode delays. The nearest to not having a delay was the one-episode delay policy that was established on 14 February 2012 with the premiere of My Beloved. What is going to happen is in the North American feed as well as on the Australian feed, the premiere of Niño and subsequent new episodes on same-day airing will take place on the evening telecast and replays in the afternoon telecasts while in other feeds, particularly, the Middle East and North Africa, Asia Pacific and European feeds, the premiere and subsequent new episodes will take place in the afternoon telecasts and replays on evening telecasts, thus because these telecasts will take place in the afternoon, such is still not considered delayed, as a new episode of the show still has not premiered. This similar framework followed with Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, which premiered on 2 June airing on same-day basis as well along with Strawberry Lane on 15 September and Hiram na Alaala on 22 September.
Ilustrado, the first BayaniSerye on Philippine Primetime, had a world premiere on all feeds of GMA Pinoy TV on 20 October 2014; this was simultaneous with the premiere in the Philippines and this is the first time such has happened in GMA Pinoy TV history.

In the 1st Quarter of 2015, in response to viewers' requests and to remain competitive in the international market, GMA Pinoy TV began to increase the amount of shows with English subtitles, now including daily dramas like Let the Love Begin and The Rich Man's Daughter.
On May 10, 2015, Willie Revillame's Wowowin premiered on GMA Network and on GMA Pinoy TV, serving as his return to the Kapuso Network. It is noted that Willie Revillame's popular Wowowee aired for five years on GMA and GMA Pinoy TV's rival stations.
To celebrate GMA Pinoy TV's 10th Anniversary, GMA Pinoy TV has rolled out a series of concerts, entitled "Kapusong Pinoy" followed by the name of the place as well as appearances at Filipino cultural events throughout the world, mainly in the months of June and July to celebrate the Philippines 117th Independence Day. GMA Pinoy TV is using the hashtag #Sampuso to celebrate and highlight its 10th year of bringing Filipinos closer to home. The first two concerts were originally supposed to include GMA's Primetime Queen Marian Rivera-Dantes but because of her pregnancy, she chose to withdraw from the concerts for her and her child's safety and AiAi delas Alas served as her replacement in the first two concerts.
The first Sampuso concert was on May 29, 2015 (originally slated for April 24, 2015) at the Orpheum Theater in Vancouver, Canada featuring AiAi delas Alas, Christian Bautista, Jonalyn Viray, Alden Richards, and Betong Sumaya as Antonietta of Bubble Gang.
