CNN Philippines Updates or simply Updates is the flagship news brief of CNN Philippines.


It was launched in March 1, 2012 under the channel's predecessors Solar News Channel (as Solar News Update and Solar Headlines) and 9TV (as Headlines) and currently airs every 30 minutes from 9:00 am to 11:30 am on weekday mornings, 2:00 pm, 2:30 pm and 4:00 to 5:00 pm on weekday afternoons, and on weekends every hour from 9 am to 5 pm.

Special cases[edit]

When warranted, Updates can be aired beyond its regular news brief format for special coverages; and when a developing story breaks, it will air as CNN Philippines Breaking News. Whenever possible, breaking stories from CNN International may be simulcasted on CNN Philippines, before or after the local updates air; in some cases, CNN PH may keep the simulcast overnight until 6:00am of the day.

Weekend expansion[edit]

The weekend editions premiered on June 13, 2015. Prior to the permanent expansion, it only aired when major developing stories warrant and during severe weather coverage, notably Typhoon Ruby in December 2014.

Unlike the weekday newsbriefs that rotate every half-hour, the weekend updates air every top of the hour.
