TLC is a television channel available in South-East Asia.

Plans to launch the channel first surfaced in 2000 when Discovery started working on expanding Discovery Travel & Adventure and Discovery Health to the Asian and Latin American markets.[2]

The channel launched as Discovery Travel & Adventure in June 2001. It was the third channel launched by Discovery Networks in the region. When it launched, it was focused on providing travel-related entertainment.[3][4][5]

On January 1, 2005, the channel was rebranded as Discovery Travel & Living and received new programming. This was part of a major action within Discovery Networks International to focus on lifestyle programming. The new schedules featured much cooking programmes and makeover shows.[6][7]

On 1 September 2010, the channel was rebranded again into Discovery TLC Asia with international and local line ups. The new channel will be "bigger, better and bolder, featuring new places, genres, and faces."[8] As of June 2011, TLC South East Asia has now split into four different channel feeds.
