TLC, also known as the Travel and Living Channel (formerly Discovery Travel & Adventure and Discovery Travel & Living) is an Australian television channel owned by Discovery Communications. It launched in 2004 and currently consists of programming derived from the U.S. version of TLC.

History

The channel launched as Discovery Travel & Adventure in 2004. In October 2005, it rebranded as Discovery Travel & Living, using programming from that branch of Discovery Communications. It was formerly available on SelecTV from March 2007 until the closure of its English service in late 2010. On 1 September 2010, Discovery Travel & Living rebranded as the Travel and Living Channel, or TLC. Unlike the channel TLC in the United States whose acronym originally stood for The Learning Channel, the TLC service in Australia is an acronym for Travel and Living Channel. The channel also converted to 16:9 aspect ratio during the conversion. Over time, it took on programming from the American TLC brand.

On 3 November 2014, TLC's sister channel Discovery Home & Health closed and was replaced with Discovery Kids. As a result, a variety of Home & Health's programming moved to TLC. In addition, Foxtel moved TLC from channel 646 to channel 130, and TLC+2 from channel 647 to channel 166. On 1 September 2015 Sky TV New Zealand will launch TLC on Sky 016 as part of a wider reshuffle of Sky Channels Say Yes to the Dress: Australia, an international adaptation of the Say Yes to the Dress format from the United States, featuring couture wedding gown designer Adam Dixon, will become the first local production on the channel when it debuts in 2016.
