Jack City (stylized as JackCITY) is a television network in the Philippines. Formerly known as Chase, it is Jack TV's second counterpart channel. It is owned by Broadcast Enterprises and Affiliated Media, Inc. and Solar Television Network, Inc, and is a sister channel to Solar News Channel, ETC, 2nd Avenue, Universal Channel, Jack TV (its main network channel), Blink Cinema, Basketball TV, Solar Sports, the Game Channel, and Diva Universal.[1] It is currently broadcast via BEAM Channel 31 on free TV, and available over Destiny Cable channel 60, Cablelink channel 40, SkyCable channel 72 (digital), and other affiliate stations in the Philippines. Launched on October 20, 2012, its programming, similar to that of defunct networks C/S and Chase, is focused on suspense, science fiction, and drama series, with a dash of style.[2]

HistoryEdit

On September 7, 2012, an announcement was made during CHASE programs and in commercials, bearing the slogan: "Another Jack TV is rising, coming soon on this channel" (BEAM Channel 31), and Jack City was launched in October 20, 2012. On the event before the channel was launched, CHASE ended its operation on October 19, 2012, although some of its programs were carried over to this channel. The full broadcast was initiated on November 11, 2012. The main reason of reformatting/rebranding was due to CHASE being too male-centric.[3][4][5][6]

Recently, around June 28, 2013, BEAM Channel 31 limited the operations of Jack City from 24 hours to 18 hours broadcasting due to National Telecommunications Commission's rules of free TV. However, it still continues to air 24 hours on cable providers.
