TLC is a British pay television channel owned by Warner Bros. Discovery. It is based on the American channel of the same name. It launched on 30 April 2013 at 8:00 p.m., replacing Discovery Real Time and DMAX +2.
The original version of TLC was launched in 1994 and was subsequently renamed Discovery Home & Leisure and later Discovery Real Time as part of Discovery's catalogue of themed channels. Given that TLC was chasing a completely different demographic than the old TLC, Discovery treated it as a new channel launch rather than a return.
On 30 April 2013, TLC +1 was launched, replacing DMAX +2.
A two-hour timeshift, TLC +2, was launched on 16 September 2013. It closed down on 27 April 2018, and was rebranded as Discovery Turbo +1.
Programming consists of acquired shows and original commissions. TLC also features an Oprah Winfrey Network branded programme block.
