TLC is a television channel broadcasting to several countries in Latin America. It was originally known as Discovery Travel & Adventure Channel and featured more adventure-related programmes. On February 1, 2005, the channel changed its name to Discovery Travel & Living and changed to lifestyle programming about travel, food, design, architecture and luxury. In November 1, 2011, it was relaunched as "TLC: Travel & Living Channel" as part of the international roll-out of the TLC brand and the premiere of additional programming. In late 2012, "Travel & Living Channel" was dropped from the channel's name and replaced with the Discovery logo on the channel's logo.

  • TLC HD (instead of being a full simulcast of TLC, the all-HD channel features programming from TLC and Discovery Home & Health, with a single feed to the entire region, with separate audio and subtitle channels in Spanish and Portuguese)
