The Learning Channel (TLC)




TLC (originally an acronym for The Learning Channel) is an American cable TV network which carries a variety of informational and reality-based programming. Since 1991 TLC has been owned by Discovery Communications, the same company that operates the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and The Science Channel, as well as other learning-themed networks. The channel is one of the few cable networks also legally available in Canada under its original American interpretation.



TLC imports a significant amount of programming material from the United Kingdom (such as Junkyard Wars) mostly through its parent company's ties to the BBC. It also produces U.S. versions of some shows (like What Not to Wear, originally a BBC production) as well as original programming (like Robotica).



A High Definition simulcast of TLC was launched on 1 September 2007. It is currently available on Cox, Dish Network, DirecTV, Shaw Cable, Insight Communications, Bright House Networks, Verizon FiOS and Comcast.
