The History Channel was created in 1995 and features historical documentaries and biographies of famous people throughout the ages. Once known as "The Hitler Channel" because of the saturation of World War II stories. This ended after the shift of these programs over to their sister station The Military Channel. Using a variety of subjects and eras, the History Channel touches on everything from medieval times to UFO's. Versions of the channel can be seen in a number of countries, on different continents and can now be seen in HDTV. Their programs include many original series such as Mail Call, Dogfights, Ice Road Truckers and Human Weapon.
