ReceptionEdit

Solar lost the partner in RMN and BEAM Inc. after the latter ceased its affiliation agreement, resulting in the loss of Jack City from free TV 31 in favor of religious programming and O Shopping block.

BEAM Channel 31 airing O Shopping (daily 9am-2pm) and TBN Asia programs (daily 7-9am and 2pm-12mn) since September 1, 2014, a day after the last Free TV broadcast of Jack City, as BEAM prepared for Digital Terrestrial Television in the Philippines.

Debuting on October 6, 2014, RMN acquired the main technical and TV production operations of BEAM which is used under the affiliates, CTV-31 (Cinema Television) and E! Philippines from October 31, 1992 to June 1, 2003, prior to the acquisition by BHI/Globe in 2009. It was picked as the broadcast arm of TBN Asia and O Shopping in the Philippines at the time, and also with BEAM Channel 31 started test broadcast in September 1, 2014 with rebroadcast of TBN Asia and O Shopping.

A month later on October 6, 2014, it launched its own programming and adopted the slogan Ang Katuloy Natin parang TV. The station initially ran TBN Asia and O Shopping rebroadcasts in the day, and ran its own shows at primetime. It also ran for 24 hours, but financial limitations forced it to sign off at 3AM every day.

The flagship station, with the grand launch of BEAM 31, simulcasting the Philippine airwaves of TBN Asia programming. BEAM 31 was officially launched on October 6, 2014, when the daily blocktime timeshare with TBA Asia (7am-9pm and 2pm-4:30pm and 10:30pm-1am) and O Shopping (9am-2pm) aired during the daytime, with BEAM's newest programming taking over in the primetime hours (5pm-10:30pm).

It was created when Philippine Congress granted a franchise under Republic Act No. 8219 and duly licensed by the NTC dated October 6, 2014.

By March 1, 2016, all of BEAM's programs were split into digital television streams. O Shopping, TBN, TV Shop and Shop Japan were relocated as their respective digital subchannel of its own; while BEAM became a full-fledged station, and resulted as an affiliate of Shop TV in its analog signal, allowing it to cover most of BEAM's airtime (Tagalog-dubbed telenovelas remained on the analog channel during primetime).
