Jack TV is a 24-hours Filipino cable and satellite television network based in Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. It is owned by Solar Entertainment Corporation, test launched on May 2005, officially debuting on July 12, 2005 and is available on SkyCable Channel 51, Destiny Cable (Digital) Channel 51, (Analog) Channel 30, Cablelink Channel 36, G Sat Channel 19 and (For 233 subscription, please contact for local cable operators Nationwide.) As well as online (exclusively available for SkyMobi subscribers).

It offers Western comedy, animation, drama series and reality shows as well as children's and teen's television properties 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).

However, when Solar TV was replaced by Talk TV (now CNN Philippines), Jack TV reverted to its Solar USA programming while maintaining some of the programming that made it a staple in its early years.

On October 20, 2012, Solar Entertainment launched its secondary channel Jack CITY (now CT) on BEAM Channel 31 (now broadcast on cable since September 1, 2014), replacing CHASE.
