It said it would offer “a steady dose of newscasts” from morning until night, including a two-minute newsbreak every 15 minutes from 9 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. Solar News Channel will also produce a variety of current affairs programs that include Legal HD with lawyer Karen Jimeno and Rod Nepomuceno, Medtalk with Angel Jacob, with Pia Hontiveros, News Café with Jing Magsaysay and Opposing Views with lawyer Rod Nepomuceno.

It will air locally co-produced lifestyle programs such as What I See and Something to Chew On, while international programs like The Talk, Undercover Boss, 60 minutes, NBC Nightly News, Inside Edition and other documentaries will complete the line-up.

“Solar News Channel is dedicated to providing back-to-basics journalism but using the latest technology available in the market,” it said.

Besides the transfer to free TV, it launched its mobile application with the Solar News app which can be dowloaded for free on App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android.
