An American cable channel, Food Network comes under the ownership of Television Food Network, G.P., which is a venture jointly undertaken by Nexstar Media Group and Discovery, Inc. Regardless of this general partnership, the channel is run and managed as a division of the Discovery Networks US.

Launched in 1993 as TV Food Network, the channel’s programming is split into a daytime lineup called “Food Network in the Kitchen” and a primetime block known as "Food Network Nighttime".
