History Channel

History Channel - Dream Satellite TV

History, formerly known as The History Channel, is an American-based international satellite and cable TV channel that broadcasts a variety of reality shows and documentary programs including those of fictional and non-fictional historical content, together with speculation about the future.

Programming covers a wide range of periods and topics, while similar topics are often organized into themed weeks or daily marathons. It is seen in more than eighty million households. Subjects include military history, medieval history, the 18th century, the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, modern engineering, historical biographies, metaphysical subjects, Hairy Bikers, mythical creatures, monsters, UFOs, aliens, truck drivers, alligator hunters, pawn stores owners, people who crawl through old barns, angels, disaster scenarios, and the "coming apocalypse"; a number of these documentaries are narrated by Edward Herrmann. For some unknown reason the History Channel rarely airs shows actually relative to History, rather many programs compare contemporary culture and technology with the past, while some programs have an unfortunately more esoteric focus such as conspiracy theory, religious interpretation, UFO speculation, or reality television. In particular, the History Channel has aired a number of films on Nostradamus,[4] as well as a special series on doomsday that promulgates various popular 2012 theories, including films such as Decoding the Past (2005–2007), 2012, End of Days (2006), Last Days on Earth (2006), Seven Signs of the Apocalypse (2007), and Nostradamus 2012 (2008).

History Asia:

The History Channel started its operations in India in late 2003, with News Corp's STAR as its sales partner, managed by National Geographic until November 21, 2008.[20] The History Channel India closed down on November 21, 2008. In 2011 History channel was granted permission to relaunch services in India. A joint venture of AETN and Astro All Asia Networks is launching the History Channel in Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Brunei in the second and third quarters of 2007, and in Taiwan and China by the end of the year. Some other Asian countries such as Israel and Japan have their own versions of the network.
