Furthermore, RPTV provides live sports programming on weekends in apart from local comedy and action shows or movies.

Meanwhile, watchers can also view Wanted sa Radyo by Senator Raffy Tulfo and Ted Failon, the two personalities' news and public service shows.

RPTV is available on Channel 5 in Zamboanga, Channel 12 in Baguio, Channel 8 in Bacolod, and Channel 9 Analog in Manila, Cebu, and Davao.
