Nat Geo People, formerly known as Adventure One (A1) and National Geographic Adventure (commonly abbreviated to Nat Geo Adventure), was a subscription TV channel part of National Geographic Channels International and 21st Century Fox. Targeted at female audiences, with programming focusing on people and cultures, the channel is available in 50 countries in both linear and non-linear formats.[1]

History[edit]

Adventure One (A1) launched on 1 November 1999 being rebranded on May 1, 2007 as National Geographic Adventure, strengthening the overall Nat Geo presence.[2] All countries adopted the change, except in Europe which instead changed A1 to Nat Geo Wild.[3] Nat Geo Adventure is also a global adventure travel video and photography portal, which launched worldwide in 2009.[3]

Nat Geo Adventure was aimed at younger audiences, providing programming based around outdoor adventure, travel and stories involving people having fun while exploring the world.

In early 2008, National Geographic Adventure Channel Australia and National Geographic Adventure Channel Italy launched a new video sharing feature on their website called Blognotes.

In 2010, Nat Geo Adventure launched their High Definition (HD) channel in Asia via AsiaSat 5.

It launched in HDTV on SKY Italia channel 410 from February 1, 2012. At the time of launch (0500 UTC) the Standard Definition version of the channel was closed down.

On September 30, 2013 it was announced that in early 2014 Nat Geo Adventure would be replaced by Nat Geo People. This would see Nat Geo People launch in HD where currently available, as well as in linear and non-linear formats, in 50 countries internationally. The change will see the channel become more female focused, with programming to focus on people and cultures.[1] Nat Geo People was replaced by Nat Geo Wild in Germany and Austria on the 12th of September 2017. Nat Geo people will cease broadcasting in Australia on the 28th of February 2018 with all popular Tv shows moving to the National geographic channel , They will also be closing FX channel , Eurosport News on the same day , Foxtel Australia has confirmed this and has emailed all Foxtel Customers regarding the changes in Late January.
