About History Channel

The History Channel debuted in 1995, and in the beginning the cable channel was true to its name. A rebranding in 2008, however, shortened the channel's name to simply "History," and a new programming focus came along with the new name. Since the rebranding, History's schedule has been filled primarily with reality programming, and the history-themed documentaries that were once a mainstay of the channel are aired much less often.

The History Channel launched as a joint venture between the Hearst Corporation and Disney, and it is part of the A&E network of cable channels. In its early years, History was, indeed, focused on programming that explored historical topics, especially documentaries about American military history. After the rebranding, History began to include entertainment-style documentaries in its schedule, and many of the new programs featured sensational topics - such as aliens, conspiracy theories, fantastical creatures and religion - and dubious factual content.

History's current schedule also relies heavily on lifestyle-type reality series that spotlight the jobs and personalities of their characters.
