Sometimes, all we need in life is to pause whatever we’re doing, put our ‘curiosity’ specs on and disconnect from the present. No, we don’t expect you to pull off a SpongeBob with the Orb of Confusion situation. Rather, we expect you to head down the route of what has helped us evolve into what we’re right now – the history. Though it’s seldom given the acknowledgement it rightfully deserves, history is all one needs to acquaint with the societies and civilizations that existed years ago!

As much as the historians deserve to be lauded for helping us understand the stone carvings left by our ancestors, one more entity deserves just as much appreciation. The entity that has been a part of millions of TV sets across the globe as History, formerly known as The History Channel.

In 2015, History was available to more than 96 million American households. The number must’ve surely gone up by now, considering that History’s UK counterpart gained a 35% rise in its viewership in the first quarter of 2020. History is available over all the top TV service providers, including DIRECTV, AT&T’s satellite TV service that has been breathing life into millions of TV sets across the US for more than two decades.

History on DIRECTV – Transforming Couches into Time Machines Since 1995

History was originally launched as The History Channel in the beginning of 1995. History is a pay TV network owned and operated by A E Networks – a joint venture between Disney Media Networks and Hearst Communications. History’s focus, just as the name suggests, was solely on broadcasting documentaries and fiction series depicting historical events. History’s initial broadcasting lineup consisted an extensive coverage of World War II. Then, upon being nicknamed as ‘The Hitler Channel’, History decided to move all of its military-related content to its sister channel ‘Military History’. And thus, History transitioned towards covering various subjects including engineering, technology, science, mythical creatures, monsters, conspiracy theories, secret societies and more – they had us at the conspiracy theories!

However, in 2000, History decided to try its luck with reality programming, but it backfired. The switch towards pseudo-documentaries bagged History a fair share of criticism from historians and scientists alike. This is why History had to pivot back toward its original programming, which let’s face it is hands-down what we need to delve into the anomalies that dwell around us – cue the creepy alien tune!
