Viva TV is a Philippine satellite and cable entertainment TV channel owned by Viva Entertainment.[1][2]

Viva TV as a block on IBC[edit]

In February 2000, Viva TV was launched as a block on primetime aired on IBC. The new block of the network came after Viva Entertainment's acquisition of Vintage Television. This includes movie blocks, dramas series, showbiz-oriented shows, music videos, comedy, game shows and sports shows including the Philippine Basketball Association.

In early 2003, Viva TV ended its airing on IBC after Viva decided not to renew a blocktime agreement with the network to air the block due to high programming costs and low ratings.

Viva TV as a cable and satellite channel[edit]

After a 9-year hiatus, on July 16, 2012, Viva TV went back on the air, the channel was relaunched as a new 24-hour all-Filipino general entertainment channel on cable and satellite, replacing Viva Cinema. It was transformed from a movie/general entertainment channel to a full length entertainment channel which includes music videos, talkshows, reality series, concerts and behind the scenes from movies featuring some of the contract artists of Viva Entertainment including Sarah Geronimo, Anne Curtis, KC Concepcion, among others.
