Discovery Fit & Health is an American cable television network owned by Discovery Communications dedicated to fitness and health. Launched on February 1, 2011, it is the result of the merger of Discovery Health Channel and FitTV and features programs formerly found on both channels.[1]

History

Discovery Communications shut down the original Discovery Health Channel at 11:59 pm ET on December 31, 2010 and used its old channel space a minute later to launch OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, a new network under the auspices of Oprah Winfrey. Its old shows soon began airing on FitTV.

On January 17, 2011, Discovery Communications announced that FitTV and the intellectual property of the Discovery Health Channel would be merged and renamed as Discovery Fit & Health on February 1, 2011, using FitTV's old channel space.[2][3][4]
