Fine Living was a Canadian English language category 2 digital cable specialty channel owned by CW Media (a division of Canwest and GS Capital Partners) and Scripps Networks Interactive. Its programs were dedicated to inspiring and empowering people to live better and help maximize their time and get the most out of their money.
Programs on Fine Living originated from five main categories: Design & Décor, Every Day, Favourite Things, Food & Drink and Travel & Adventure.

Fine Living was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on November 24, 2000 as The Luxe Network to Alliance Atlantis. The licence was originally set to expire on April 1, 2003 if the service was not operating by that date. The CRTC gave an extension to November 24, 2004 and by that time The E.W. Scripps Company had purchased a minority interest in the service and on September 3, 2004 the channel launched as Fine Living.
In June 2009, Canwest announced that it would be shutting down Fine Living in the fall of that year. Canwest said that it would launch a Canadian version of the DIY Network for television providers to replace Fine Living with. The channel was eventually shut down on October 19, 2009 with the launch of DIY Network.
On March 4, 2019, it was announced that Corus Entertainment would be shutting down DIY Network on April 1, 2019. However, on March 11, 2019, it was announced that it would be adding the reboot of Fine Living, replacing DIY Network. The rebrand took place on April 1, 2019.
