Discovery Health Channel: A Channel You Have to View!


DHC (or Discovery Health Channel ), is a U.S. cable television network launched on August 2,

In the beginning, Discovery Health Channel started out running material from others, for example the medical-based reality show programming from TLC. As the network grow old, it started producing its own programming  mostly dealing with babies (Babies: Special Delivery, Birth Day), blood (The Critical Hour, Dr. G: Medical Examiner) and bodies (Plastic Surgery: Before and After, National Body Challenge) . Discovery Health Channel also shows episodes of the CBS medical drama series Chicago Hope on a semi-regular basis.

Discovery Health Channel won its first Daytime Emmy in 2004 for its original series about adoptive families, Adoption Stories. Most of Discovery Health Channel’s fitness-related programming has since been spun off to its sister network FitTV, though some of it remains, such as the annual National Body Challenge series.

In 2009, Discovery Communications will cease the broadcasting of the Discovery Health Channel and replace it with OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. Discovery Health Channel was selected to be dropped due to its low viewer ratings.
