History Channel ... historical events and persons—often with observations and explanations by noted historians as well as reenactors and interviews with witnesses. Some of the original programming is also shown on History Television in Canada. The UK version of the History Channel is operated as a joint venture between A&E and British Sky Broadcasting.
Newest Review: ... and would be more suited to a channel such as Discovery. Then, we get onto the actual History bit of the channel (because to be fair, they do show some history programmes .) The problem is, they tend to spend a lot of time focusing on two particular areas of history, namely World War Two, and Henry VIII. And often, they'll do this by showing the same programmes repeatedly thoughout any given ... more

I love History - anything ranging from the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, ranging through the Tudors, the Stuarts, and famous criminals like Jack the Ripper, to more recent history - Suffragettes, the two World Wars , and Martin Luther King . So, you'd think that the History Channel would be right up my street wouldn't you ? And, you'd be wrong . This channel can be found on Virgin Media 234, and on Sky 529, with both having +1 channels allowing you to view programmes an hour later . So, why would a history lover like me NOT like this channel - well, the answer is simple - a vastly unbalanced selection of programmes, and far too many ... Read the complete review

I've always liked History from being a schoolchild, so when I first got the chance to watch this channel on satellite TV I grabbed it. For me this is an excellent channel which is repeated on Sky a hour later History+1, (logically enough). The range of programmes shown is immense covering virtually every period from the Egyptians through the splendour of Rome, the Middle Ages, through to modern conflicts in the Middle East. My favourite period of History though is the Second World War and the History channel mor ethan caters for my tastes showing not only documentary but also dramatised accounts of events that took ...

I love the History channel - Sky 529, then repeated on 530. I believe if you know about history then you know about the present and have better understanding of life - good or bad. I prefer 20th century history and the History Channel have had some brilliant programmes on world war 1 and 2, the Russian Revolution, Stalinist Russia, post-war Europe and Japan. They have also covered such events as the Iranian Seige and the assassination of J.F Kennedy etc. If you or your children are studying history at college or uni this is a good channel to view as the programmes often give a good insight - eg often-rare footage or interviews are shown. ...

As far as I am concerned my TV can be welded to the history channel. It is the most informative and interesting channel on TV. It is factual and so absorbing. I have been accused by my wife of living too much in the past and when I have had a scotch or two, I begin to reminis and recall bygone days. I get very nostalgic, but I love it too. As you get older you do seem to recall the past with fondness. I know that some of the history channel topics are not to get fond over in their content, but it casts your mind back you know, and you remember the better times. I also find it so very interesting to see actual film of the two world wars and try ... Read the complete review

The women have "Lifetime-Television for Women" and the cable gods handed men "The History Channel". Is it fair? It could be fair if the channel actually was a history channel instead of the Hitler channel, Marlboromax's mom actually came up with the name for the channel and she is quite right. They just dwell on Dubya Dubya Too. I mean maybe there are a bunch of old men sitting around watching it and reliving their sacrifices they made to make Eastern europe communist, but I hope that in fifty years I do not want to watch shows about the Gulf War on the History Channel all the time. So aside from all the Nazi and Hitler stuff ... Read the complete review
