Beginnings as Inter-Island 13Edit
DZTV Channel 13 started broadcasts on March 1, 1960 at 6:30pm under the Inter-Island Broadcasting Corporation thru the tri-media conglomerate of RMN-IBC-Philippine Herald owned by Andrés Soriano, Sr., the then owner of San Miguel Corporation, and with the first and original studios are located at P. Guevarra Street, San Juan, Metro Manila (they were owned by Andres Soriano along with RMN Manila). The station had relay transmitters to bring its programs to viewers in Cebu and Davao. American businessman Dick Baldwin was the station's first owner, and programming first consisted of mostly foreign programs from CBS, and a few local shows. Andres would acquire the network in 1962.
In 1970 to 1972, IBC launched its color transmission system named "Vinta Color" named after the Vintas from Zamboanga, becoming the third network in the Philippines to convert to all-color broadcasts, after ABS-CBN and RPN. After the declaration of martial law, ABS-CBN veteran Ben Aniceto took over the station manager post of Channel 13 from 1973–1976. As the de facto television arm of the RMN network, it was partnered with the RMN radio stations for coverages of the general elections of 1969 and 1971.
Relaunch as Intercontinental Broadcasting CorporationEdit
On February 1, 1975, due to a constitutional limitation prohibiting the partnership of media by non-Filipinos or corporations not 100% Filipino owned, Inter-Island 13 split off from the Sorianos and Canoys (owners of RMN), and was renamed Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC) and acquired by Benedicto Group of Companies headed by the late Roberto Benedicto. IBC also opened its FM station DWKB-FM the same year. Marking the relaunch, the network debuted its vinta logo, which would be used until 1978 in two iterations.
In 1976, IBC metamorphosed into one of the country's most viewed TV network with its primetime lineup and full length local and foreign films aired on this channel. This catapulted IBC in the number one slot among 4 rival networks, and also emphasized that the network became the birthplace of the golden age of Philippine television. Through the blood and sweat of its employees and the income generated from its programs, the network built and finally moved into its present home at the modern Broadcast City, together with its sister networks RPN and BBC in July 1978. The complex was a 55,000 square metre tract located at Capitol Hills, Diliman, Quezon City. IBC manifested an enviable resilience in surviving the challenges. It marked the biggest, most progressive leap any network has ever made. Because of its station produced shows and co-production ventures, it penetrated a wider market. Thus, remarkable productivity surfaced with a acquisition of several provincial TV and radio stations. It was one of the most dominant networks in the days of president Ferdinand Marcos.
1986-1990: EDSA RevolutionEdit
After the People Power Revolution, IBC, with 20 television stations that time, was sequestered by the government. A board of administrators was created to run the station. All of the stocks and assets of IBC, and its sister networks RPN-9 and BBC-2 were sequestered by the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG). The new logo, features the IBC and 13 was on the separate circles. The new slogan, Basta Pinoy sa Trese was in a circle to commemorate the People Power Revolution.
President Corazon Aquino turned over IBC and RPN to the Government Communications Group and awarded BBC through an executive order to ABS-CBN. When BBC closed down, IBC absorbed majority of its displaced employees, thus doubled the operating expenses of the network. Cost of programs went up three-fold. Line-produced shows and co-production ventures with some big film companies like Viva, Regal, and Seiko were favored, aside from their station-produced programs. The top rated shows of IBC were pirated by rival networks. Cost of programs, talent fees and TV rights increased tremendously. IBC could no longer afford to produce its own shows.
In 1987, IBC 13 was also named as E13 for the first time and its slogan Life Begins at 13 noted for the butterfly logo in the form of the letter E and the number 13.
In July 1, 1989, E13 renamed back to IBC 13. IBC took on a new image at the same year, Pusong Pinoy, Pusong Trese (Heart of Filipino, Heart of Thirteen), to recapture the glory days it once had. But because of the sequestration, periodic change of management and the internal problems, the network started to lose the support from its advertisers.
In February 23, 1990, IBC inaugurated its 500-foot IBC Tower located along Roosevelt Ave, San Francisco del Monte, Quezon City, the tallest man-made structure in the country.
1990-1992: Islands TV-13Edit
Islands Broadcast Corporation under Mr. Alfonso Denoga took over the management and the marketing of IBC (which came to be known as Islands TV-13) in August 1, 1990, when the time IBC 13 was dead last (#5) in the ratings. The new logo features a three triangles and a slogan, The Newest Network adorn on the logo. It was in the later part of its operations that ratings and income suffered due to mismanagement which caused labor unrest. In March 1993, the Makati RTC issued the court order stopping Islands for being the marketing and sales agent of IBC due to unpaid financial obligations to the network as the contract of Islands expired in February 28, 1993. 
1992-1998: Return of OperationsEdit
In October 3, 1992, Islands TV-13 was renamed back as IBC and became a 100% government owned station by virtue of a compromise agreement between PCGG and Roberto Benedicto, management and marketing were returned to the IBC Board of Directors. The programming remained at a standstill in preparation for the launching of a new image of the station.
It was on May 27, 1994 when IBC launched its new slogan Pinoy Ang Dating (The Coming of Filipino, literally translated as Filipino styled) with a Filipino-like visually enticing music video (with Grace Nono as the composer and singer of the same song), an innovation in terms of station identification. Despite limited resources, programming improved but the battle for audience share continued. Advertisers became more responsive to marketing efforts. The said ident won the Gawad CCP Award for Best Station Identification in the said year.
In 1996, Vintage Enterprises transferred to IBC as part of the launching of Vintage Television (VTV), a primetime slot that aired on IBC with PBA, Blow by Blow and other Vintage Sports-produced programs after leaving another government-owned station, People's Television Network (PTV). In the same year, IBC bring back its glorious years in the 1970s and 1980s and regained its foothold in Philippine TV ratings, from dead last (#5) to being number 3 at that time.

There were many plans to sell and privatize IBC and its sister station RPN. TV network ABS-CBN was planning to buy the network's blocktime to address signal problems and mimic the former's programs. However, ABS-CBN could not join the privatization bid due to ownership regulations.

Branding of IBCEdit

In 1975 become Inter-Islands TV-13 split, the original logo was mofidied the Intercontinental Brodcasting Cororation by using its several logos. On December 14, 2003, the network used a bank gothic typeface and toy building blocks, incorporating the colors red for sports, green for entertainment and blue for news and public affairs with the new colors in favor. On June 5, 2011, IBC unveiled its new logo, which appeared on the new italiczed typeface, in-motion oval and craftily spliced letter B slash number 13 with a cold-icy and all-blue glass appearance, and intially known as Kapinoy since its launch in July 1, 2012 by dominating a huge marketing campaign and improved television ratings and became part of their Pinoy Ang Dating campaign since it relaunch in 2013. The previous logo, which heralded IBC as the number 3 TV network in the country gave way to the present logo's styling. The design of the stylized 13 is a descendant of the one found in the station logo design used in the 1970s and 1980s and 1990s in which they called Kapinoy for the Filipino, in the same of Kapamilya for the family and Kapuso for the hearts.
