TLC (Travel and Living Channel) was launched in 2004, formerly it was known as the Discovery Travel and Adventure Channel. 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.
On 1 September 2010, Discovery Travel & Living rebranded as TLC. Unlike the channel TLC in the United States, the TLC service in Australia is an acronym for "Travel and Living Channel", instead of being a meaningless acronym (though it originally stood for "The Learning Channel" in the U.S.), and airs none of the U.S. service's programming. The channel also converted to 16:9 aspect ratio during the conversion.
