Velvet was a Filipino cable television network based in Quezon City. It was owned and operated by Creative Programs, Inc. (now ABS-CBN Cable Channels), a wholly owned subsidiary of the media conglomerate ABS-CBN Corporation. The primary focus of the network was into women-oriented general entertainment programming.[1]

Channel Information[edit]

Velvet had a sneak preview on SkyCable channel 25 since November 2007, together with Maxxx and Balls. Velvet was officially launched on January 1, 2008. Velvet also aired selected shows on Studio 23 (now ABS-CBN Sports+Action).

The channel went off the air at the midnight on January 1, 2014. Miss Universe 2013 was the last program of Velvet before it permanently signed off.

Most of the channel's programming and specials were moved to Lifestyle.


Velvet is the result after the contract of Solar Entertainment's 2nd Avenue expired with SkyCable. Velvet is fairly similar in theme and audiences with ETC and 2nd Avenue typically appealing to the female-audience genre with a range from pre-adolescent to the late-thirties age bracket . Velvet features programs based on entertainment news & specials, game shows, stand-up comedy acts, drama, reality series and award shows.
