One PH

One PH is an all-Filipino news, public affairs and entertainment channel of cable television provider Cignal TV, Inc. In partnership with Radyo5, Cignal launched One PH in 2019 as a counterpart of the English-language news channel ONE News, which are both part of the cable provider’s One Network Media Group brand.

As of the second quarter of 2023, One PH is the No. 10 television channel in the Philippines with an audience share of 0.20% based on Nielsen’s television audience measurement.

Although it was launched as a cable channel, One PH has been available on free-to-air television since March 2020. To produce content, it has partnered with fellow media brands under the MediaQuest Holdings, Inc. such as Pilipino Star Ngayon, The Freeman, 92.3 True FM (Radyo 5) and TV5’s news unit News5. It also simultaneously broadcasts some of its programs with Radyo5.

With its tagline “Teleserbisyo para sa Pilipino”, One PH programs are categorized into “News Kom” for news and commentaries, “KKK (Katarungan, Karapatan at Kaalaman)” for informative and public service shows, and SNS (Showbiz and Sports).

Its news and public affairs programs include the early morning news program “Bangon Bayan with Mon Gualvez” and the noon and late afternoon news program “One Balita Pilipinas”. Meanwhile, its popular public service programs include “Wanted Sa Radyo” co-hosted by broadcaster and incumbent Sen. Raffy Tulfo, and "Ted Failon DJ Chacha sa Radyo5" hosted by Ted Failon and DJ Chacha, who both joined TV5 in September 2020 two months after ABS-CBN, their former network, lost its broadcast franchise.
