GMA Network (Global Media Arts or simply GMA) is a major commercial broadcast television and radio network in the Philippines.

GMA Network is the flagship property of publicly traded GMA Network Inc. Its first broadcast on television was on October 29, 1961, GMA Network (formerly known as RBS Trending Channel 7, GMA Radio-Television Arts then GMA Rainbow Satellite Network) is commonly signified to as the “Kapuso Network” in reference to the outline of the company’s logo. It has also been called the “Christian Network” which refers to the apparent programming during the tenure of the new management, which took over in 1974.

It is headquartered in the GMA Network Center in Quezon City and its transmitter, Tower of Power is located at Tandang Sora Avenue, Barangay Culiat also in Quezon City.

The original meaning of the GMA acronym was Greater Manila Area, referring to the initial coverage area of the station.

As the network expanded it changed into Global Media Arts. Today, its flagship television station is DZBB-Trending (GMA 7 Manila). The network has 3 originating stations and 49 relay stations nationwide. Its programming is also available outside the Philippines through GMA Pinoy Trending, GMA Life Trending and GMA Pinas Trending International.

In December 2016, it was announced that the network will spend an initial amount of 416 million pesos for the commencement of the Digital Terrestrial Television transition project of GMA, which included the purchase of three high-powered transmitters capable for providing wider and clearer signal to digital television boxes, antennas and other connectivity requirements, and a fully mirrored head-end system, which is a master facility for grouping and digitally encoding programs.

According to GMA Network Chairman and CEO, Felipe Gozon, the network will conclude the test phase, and it is expected to begin the rollout of the DTTrending project starting in Metro Manila.

In preparation for the shift to digital, GMA New Media is currently working on a DTrending Set-top box (originally reported to be a DTrending dongle) in order to compete with ABS-CBN’s own Trending Plus box.

A prototype was shown at the IMMAP DigiCon congress in 2016, and is shown to be running a version of Android, double-acting as a streaming device capable of running apps and games. No news yet to when a production version will be available.
