Travel Channel (originally The Travel Channel from 1987 to 1999) is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned as a joint venture between Scripps Networks Interactive (which owns 65% of the network) and Cox Communications (which owns the remaining 35% interest). The channel is headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, United States.

It features documentaries, reality, and how-to shows related to travel and leisure around the United States and throughout the world. Programming has included shows on African animal safaris, tours of grand hotels and resorts, visits to significant cities and towns across the world, programming about various foods across the world, and programming about ghosts and the paranormal in notable buildings.

As of February 2015, Travel Channel is available to approximately 91.5 million pay television households (78.6% of households with television) in the United States.[1]

History[edit]

The Travel Channel was launched on February 1, 1987; it was founded by Trans World Airlines, presumably to boost airline patronage. The channel's name was derived from the travel-related filler programming that aired between programs on the Home Theater Network. TWA purchased the name rights from Group W Satellite Communications in 1986, and took over HTN's transponder spot following the shutdown of the premium cable channel in January 1987.[2] The network was later sold to Landmark Communications, then-owner of The Weather Channel, and eventually to Paxson Communications.

Discovery Communications acquired a 70% ownership stake in the channel in 1997, and subsequently acquired the remaining 20% interest from Paxson in 1999. In May 2007, Discovery Communications sold Travel Channel to Cox Enterprises subsidiary Cox Communications as part of a larger multi-billion dollar transaction.[3] However, Discovery Communications still distributed the channel through its Discovery Networks unit.

On November 5, 2009, Scripps Networks Interactive acquired a 65% ownership interest in the network for $1.1 billion;[4] the deal closed in January 2010. Scripps currently distributes the Travel Channel and rebroadcasts some of sister channel Food Network's programming on the network.

On March 22, 2012, Scripps Networks Interactive announced that it had agreed to pay £65 million (equivalent to US$102.7 million) to acquire Travel Channel International Limited, the UK-based distributor of the Travel Channel brand across the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific markets.[5] The deal was completed on May 1, 2012, following regulatory approval.[6] The international channels were integrated with Scripps' Travel Channel.

Travel Channel HD[edit]

Travel Channel HD is a 1080i high definition simulcast feed of Travel Channel that launched on January 14, 2008. In the United States, it is available nationwide on Dish Network and DirecTV, and regionally on Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-verse, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, Cablevision, Bright House Networks, Buckeye CableSystem, Mediacom, Suddenlink Communications, and Insight Communications. When the network's operations were taken over by Scripps Networks, the network's presentation of series filmed in standard definition changed from a 14:9 pillarboxed presentation as had been done when owned by Discovery to Scripps's default HD format of video stretched across the screen.
