Beginnings as Inter-Island 13Edit
DZTV Channel 13 started broadcasts in 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. The station had relay transmitters to bring its programs to viewers in Cebu and Davao. 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 between 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.
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 moved to Benedicto Group of Companies by the late Roberto S. Benedicto (1916–2000), who purchased the network consisting of the Mega Manila station and another relay station in Cebu and Davao, and with the first studios was located at P. Guevarra Street, San Juan, Metro Manila. 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. 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 EDSA 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).
President Corazon Aquino turned over IBC and RPN to the Government Communications Group and awarded BBC through an executive order to ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation. 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 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.
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 October 1990, when the time IBC 13 was dead last (#5) in the ratings. 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 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 on VTV, 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. Rehabilitation of the transmitter and other technical facilities where initiated in the network's flagship and provincial stations.
