Launch Date?[edit]

Could someone please post the launch date of this channel. Thank You. 69.18.107.143 (talk) 11:40, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

I think there is cause for a disamb page I am going to start one. I doubt there is need for debate. In that there are two american channels, all with adjective names, as well as a host of international. --K3vin (talk) 00:50, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

UK version ?[edit]

According to Lyngsat, a UK version exist, but the websites of History UK tells us nothing about it, despite that I remember it did when the channel launched in the UK. Could we conclude that Military History Uk existed for a short period, and that viewers in the UK now are viewing the american version ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.4.207.105 (talk) 06:13, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

According to Digital Choices, the producing network is AETN UK http://www.digitalchoices.co.uk/virgin-media-adds-military-history-channel-29032010.html. Does this help?

Military History (TV channel)Military History – The article, has history lower-cased. This channel does not, so I kindly request this move. Bob Mono (talk) 13:56, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Comment: Is there some confusion here? The title Military History re-directs here, to the TV channel. Every use of the TV channel name in the article is capitalized "Military History". Then there's the article Military history, which is about the study of military history, not about the channel. Everything seems to be in order, so I'm not sure of the motive for the proposal, nor its intended result. Boneyard90 (talk) 16:44, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Capitalisation should not be used as a disambiguator. It creates far too much confusion. -- Necrothesp (talk) 14:25, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Same rationale as Necrothesp.
  • Oppose; in this case, it's far too likely that someone will capitalize when looking for the subject area. Powers T 20:59, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Military History (TV network)Military History (TV channel) – Article was previous moved for the reason of "moved page Military History (TV channel) to Military History (TV network): is a TV network by definition, a TV channel is what it is carried on or by, or the number on which it appears" which directly contradictory to the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (broadcasting). The naming convention indicates that on cable a network is a set of related channels "Viacom (corporation) operates the BET Networks (network) which provides its flagship BET (channel) and others, such as Centric." So in this case, A&E Networks owns the History network which operates the cable channels, History, Military History and History en Español. Spshu (talk) 16:58, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment – Not that I am for or against this but I think the rules about whether to refer to an article as "TV channel" or "TV network" need to be discussed in a forum and need to be explained better. 5.148.89.130 (talk) 17:44, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
