Story Television is an American digital broadcast television network owned by Weigel Broadcasting that airs history related programming, normally older programs licensed from other networks.

The network was announced on February 14, 2022. Weigel president Neal Sabin stated: “As we looked at the landscape, we looked at what genre works really well for advertisers and viewership that isn’t currently on the air right now." The genre chosen would be history-oriented programming. The name "Story" came directly from the word "history" that will play in the shows' taglines.[2]

The network launched on March 28, 2022 on stations owned by Weigel, Hearst Television, Marantha Broadcasting Company, Marquee Broadcasting and others, along with national cable distribution through providers such as Spectrum where no affiliate exists.[3]
