Discovery Health Channel (DHC) is a website owned by Discovery Communications, created for people interested in health and wellness. Until December 31, 2010, it was a U.S. cable television specialty channel dedicated to television programming that highlights various aspects of health and wellness. Launched on August 2, 1999, The network was a media property of Discovery Communications Inc., the parent company of other popular cable TV networks such as Discovery Channel, TLC, and Animal Planet.
A version of DHC was set up in Canada as well; Discovery Health Canada was a joint venture between Canadian media giant CW Media and Discovery Communications Inc; it evolved into Twist TV on November 2, 2010. Another version of the channel in the United Kingdom has since been renamed Discovery Home & Health.
In the beginning, DHC started out rerunning material from other Discovery Communications entities, most notably the medical-based reality show programming from TLC. As the network matured, it began producing its own programming in the reality show genre, mostly dealing with babies (Babies: Special Delivery, Birth Day), bodies (Plastic Surgery: Before and After, National Body Challenge), and blood (The Critical Hour, Dr. G: Medical Examiner). DHC also shows episodes of the CBS medical drama series Chicago Hope on a semi-regular basis.
DHC won its first Daytime Emmy in 2004 for its original series about adoptive families, Adoption Stories. Most of DHC's fitness-related programming has since been spun off to its sister network FitTV, though some of it remains, such as the annual National Body Challenge series.
In November 2009, it was announced that Discovery Health Channel would become defunct and replaced with a new network, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, at 12:00 am Eastern/Pacific (11:00 pm Central) on January 1, 2011.
OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network
Discovery Health was discontinued at 11:59 pm Eastern/Pacific (10:59 pm Central) on December 31, 2010. A minute later, it was replaced by a new lifestyle network headed by television personality Oprah Winfrey, known as OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
On January 1, 2011, most of the programming that had been airing on Discovery Health Channel moved to FitTV. A few Discovery Health Channel shows were picked up by OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
