Travel and Living Channel (formerly known as Discovery Travel & Adventure and Discovery Travel & Living) launched in 2004. Programming on the channel consists primarily of travel and lifestyle, and consists mainly of programming seen on the flagship Travel Channel in the United States with the branding derived from the US version of The Learning Channel.

It was formerly available on SelecTV from March 2007 until the closure of its English service in late 2010.[1][2]

On 1 September 2010, Discovery Travel & Living rebranded as TLC. Unlike the channel TLC in the United States whose acronym originally stood for The Learning Channel, the TLC service in Australia is an acronym for Travel and Living Channel. The channel also converted to 16:9 aspect ratio during the conversion.[3]

On 3 November 2014, TLC's sister channel Discovery Home & Health closed and was replaced with Discovery Kids. As a result, a variety of Home & Health's programming moved to TLC.[4] In addition, Foxtel moved TLC from channel 646 to channel 130, and TLC+2 from channel 647 to channel 166.[5] [6]
