The station functions as a default FNN affiliate for neighboring Aomori Prefecture, which does not have a Fuji Television-affiliated station of its own.


JOYH-DTV began broadcasting on 1 April 1991 as JOYH-TV (channel 33), becoming the first dedicated affiliate of FNN (Fuji Television) in the northeastern portion of Tōhoku (the license had been awarded back in December 1989, but the station's construction began in the spring of 1990). Prior to the station's signon, JODF-TV carried FNN as a secondary affiliation, while some cable providers in Iwate Prefecture carried JOOX-TV, which was receivable over the air in the prefecture's extreme southern reaches.

Digital broadcasting began on 1 July 2006, and was expected to continue until July 2011. The 11 March 2011 earthquake resulted in the postponement of the shutdown date for all analog television signals in Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima prefectures. The station finally shut down its analog television service on 31 March 2012.
