HistoryEdit

In 2015, the channel revamped its graphics and program line-up, and the programming schedule was overhauled yet again.

In March 2018, Jeepney TV featured the Hero Zone (a former anime block of ABS-CBN's main channel in 2006) as a two-hour weekend morning anime block, beginning with Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V and KonoSuba.[3]

In July 2018, Jeepney TV became available on ABS-CBN TVplus for a free trial basis until its franchise expiration on May 5, 2020.[4]

On June 1, 2020, Jeepney TV temporarily took over ABS-CBN's channel space for ABS-CBN TVplus users due to its franchise being expired, along with Asianovela Channel, which also took over S+A's channel space.

On June 30, 2020, Jeepney TV suspended broadcasting on both ABS-CBN TV Plus and Sky Direct due to the alias cease and desist order by the National Telecommunications Commission in connection with the expiration of ABS-CBN franchise. However, Jeepney TV continues to broadcast on Sky Cable and other cable television providers.

On August 1, 2020, it officially livestreams some of its contents along with Kapamilya Channel on the online video-sharing platforms Facebook and YouTube as part of Kapamilya Online Live.[5]

The channel was made available on G Sat Channel 55 on October 5, 2020,[6] SatLite Channel 37 on November 19, 2020 and Cignal Channel 44 on January 4, 2021, replacing the channel space of Fox Filipino.
