Jack TV (capitalized as JACK TV) is a 24-hour Filipino cable and satellite television network based in Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. It is owned by Solar Entertainment Corporation, and was test launched on May 5, 2005, officially debuting on July 12, 2005. It is available through pay TV providers such as SkyCable, Destiny Cable, Cablelink, G Sat, and Cignal. It is also available via live streaming on select video-on-demand services like Sky On Demand.
It offers Western comedy, animation, drama series and reality shows as well as teens' television programs from The CW, CBS, FOX, NBC, Bravo, FX, Syfy, E!, TBS, Comedy Central, ABC, USA Network, A&E, WGN America, Oxygen, Cartoon Network, Kids' WB, Fox Box, Boomerang and Netflix.
The station was formed as part of the discontinuation of Solar USA and its split into two networks. Comedy, drama, and reality shows moved to Jack TV, and the other programming was maintained on the new network C/S (now Solar TV).
Jack TV has its own and distinct programming generally aimed to a younger adult audience. Yet, its limitation as a pay TV channel, as well as frequency regulations on over-the-air television, allow the channel to lend some of their popular programs to sister channels ETC and 2nd Avenue (both having strong operations on terrestrial television), either simultaneously or time-shifted.
