Discovery Geschichte ("Discovery History") was a German television channel focusing on history-related programmes owned by Discovery Networks Europe. The channel launched on March 31, 2005 on the Premiere platform.


The service was discontinued as a full 24-hour channel on May 15, 2009, after Premiere had signed a new contract with Discovery Networks Deutschland in preparation for Premiere's relaunch as Sky Deutschland in July. On Premiere, Discovery Geschichte was replaced by National Geographic Channel Germany the following day. Discovery Geschichte continues as a programming block om DMAX.[1][2]
