Under the name UltraVision 25, the station started its broadcast operations on July 27, 1999. The first slogan was "The New Era of Television".

Capable of 120 kilowatts of transmitter power (for a total of 7,896 kilowatts ERP), NET 25 boasts of the Philippines' first trilon TV tower that rises to 907 feet above sea level.
