It is an aggrupation of the news division units within the MediaQuest group, namely TV5 Network's News5 division, and the Philstar Media Group's newspapers The Philippine Star and BusinessWorld.


Prior to the launch, the channel was then known as Bloomberg TV Philippines from 2015 to 2018. It was a joint-venture of Bloomberg L.P., Cignal TV and TV5 Network.

On May 28, 2018, Cignal TV formally launched One News, an English-language news channel which features content from the news divisions of the MediaQuest group (News5, The Philippine Star and BusinessWorld) as well as Bloomberg TV Philippines and Probe Productions.[6][7] Most of the programs from its predecessor were retained on this new channel.

In 2019, 5 began airing selected programs from One News, such as Agenda with Cito Beltran and The Chiefs. In addition, a dedicated news website for the said channel was launched and is currently managed by the PhilStar Media Group which is also responsible for the takeover of the InterAksyon website from News5 since 2018.

On March 17, 2020, One News along with One PH, temporarily suspended its regular programming as an effect of the Luzon-wide "enhanced community quarantine" against COVID-19. The news channel aired the special edition of One News Now


One News program lineup includes national newscasts, talk shows, business newscasts, and public affairs shows. Several programs from Bloomberg Television, One PH, PBA Rush, and Colours as well as third-party content partners (including Probe Productions) are also aired on the channel. Some programs can also be seen on free TV via TV5 and internationally through Kapatid Channel and AksyonTV International.
