Nat Geo People and Nat Geo People HD, formerly known as Adventure One (A1) and National Geographic Adventure (commonly abbreviated to Nat Geo Adventure), is 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]


A1 Logo

Adventure One (A1) launched on January 1, 1994[citation needed], being rebranded on May 1, 2007 as National Geographic Adventure, stengthening 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, launching worldwide in 2009.[2]

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 channel (HD) in Asia via AsiaSat 5.

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

Nat Geo Adventure Logo used from May 1, 2007 until 2014

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]

The channel is available in 40 countries around the world
