What Is the History Channel?
On January 1, 1995, A&E Networks launched the History Channel. Its early days primarily focused on documentaries and other informative programming, which soon garnered a worldwide appeal. World War II was a heavy emphasis (suiting me just fine, as this is my favorite portion of history). A&E realized this strong appeal and established the Military History Channel in 2005 to cater more to this audience.
From then on, the History Channel broadened into a wider range of topics, including pop culture, historical investigations, conspiracy theories, aliens, doomsday scenarios, how things are made, and much, much more. It is now the premier destination for entertaining historical storytelling across the world.
