Discovery Channel (Investigação Discovery in Brazil) is a television channel in Latin America[1] dedicated to crime- and investigation-themed programming, owned by Discovery Communications.

History[edit]

The channel was launched in October 1997 as the local version of Travel Channel. After the purchase by Discovery Communications and the BBC, the channel was then renamed "El Nuevo / O Novo Travel Channel: People+Arts" (pronounced as "people and arts"), and again renamed as simply "People+Arts".

The station's programming consisted of a mix of British series, reality shows, hobby programs and some American series, either in their original language with subtitling (Portugal) or dubbed in Spanish/Portuguese with optional English soundtrack; a few Spanish programs originally broadcast by generalist networks also ran on People+Arts.

In January 2010 it was replaced in Portugal on TV Cabo's Channel 82 by Discovery Travel & Living. On April 13, 2010, People+Arts in Latin America was replaced by Liv, originally a channel dedicated to women's entertainment, but quickly evolved into a general entertainment channel, with the addition of series such as Blue Bloods and the 2010 remake of Hawaii Five-O.

On 15 November 2010, BBC Worldwide sold 50% interest in Animal Planet and Liv to Discovery Communications for $156 million.[2]

On July 9, 2012, Liv was relaunched as the Latin American version of Investigation Discovery (and called Investigação Discovery in Brazil).
