The National Geographic Channel, also commercially abbreviated as Nat Geo, is an Asian subscription television channel that features non-fiction, factual programming involving nature, science, culture, and history, produced by the National Geographic Society, just like History and the Discovery Channel.

It was launched on 1 January 1994 in partnership and distribution with Star TV, a Hong Kong-based pan-Asian satellite network owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, replacing the NBC Asia channel. As of 2008, the Asian version of National Geographic Channel is available in over 56 million homes. NGC Asia has six different channels feeds.
