In 2005, Media Prima Berhad announced its acquisition of ntv7 under a price of RM90 million. Media Prima also owns three other private television stations in Malaysia: TV3, 8TV & TV9, as well as a controlling stake in the New Straits Times, owned by New Straits Times Press (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

The station, which targets the Malaysian urban demographic, offers a wide variety of programming including dramas, situational comedies (sitcoms), entertainment programmes, game shows, children programmes, anime, and movies. There are also news bulletins in English, Mandarin and Malay.

Since 1 April 2016, A teleshopping block brought by the Korean conglomerate CJ Group called CJ WOW Shop has been broadcast across Media Prima channels. Some Media Prima channels (especially NTV7 and TV9) are more affected by the changes. However, this block has attract huge criticism on social media as a large part of daytime schedule has been replaced by CJ Wow Shop, which these slots had been previously running mostly reruns, religious programming and kids programming.[6][7][8][9]

Currently it is the only analogue channel in Malaysia that supports Dual Sound, though it is not used, until the only digital channel in Malaysia and it can be used.[citation needed]
