DZRH News Television is the second free-to-air channel that re-broadcasts news from a radio station, after DZMM launched its own TV channel, while other stations soon followed such as DZRJ (for Radyo Bandido TV), Radyo Inquirer DZIQ (for Inquirer 990 Television) and Radyo 5 92.3 News FM (for One PH).

On October 1, 2007, DZRH-TV was originally launched as a pay television channel known as "TV Natin". Back then, its original programming consisted of archived DZRH programs (including radio dramas). In 2008 however, TV Natin evolved into a RadyoVision format, simulcasting most of DZRH's live programming schedule, and was eventually rebranded as RHTV. In October 2013, the network was rebranded again as "DZRH News Television" as part of the radio station's integration of its news and public affairs division.

Between October 2 and November 10, 2019, DZRH News Television went off air after its studios, along with its sister MBC Manila radio stations, were affected by a major fire that originated in the nearby Star City theme park.[1] While DZRH radio resumed regular programming at the following day (October 3) at 4 am from its backup studios at BSA Twin Towers, the station's video feed for DZRH News Television was temporarily replaced by the station's live audio feed; however, the live video streaming of DZRH's programming is available on Facebook live on the station's FB page. The channel returned on air on November 26, when DZRH were moved again to Design Center of the Philippines within CCP Complex on November 11 and its satellite feed was restored.

ProgrammingEdit

DZRH News Television airs the live video feed of DZRH programs, except selected radio dramas, religious radio programs (such as Tinig ng Pagasa), other DZRH programs, and during sign-off (until 2020, when the channel signs off every Sundays from 12 am to 4 am, thus showing the logo loop of the channel instead).
