What is the Travel Channel?

The Travel Channel is a prominent cable television network that is distributed to 95 million homes in the United States. There is also a competing channel known as the Travel Channel UK, which broadcasts programming in 19 languages and reaches viewers in Great Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Pacific. The U.S.-based Travel Channel and the unaffiliated Travel Channel UK are broadcast to millions of viewers around the world. These channels broadcast travel-related programming developed by third-party production companies. Many viewers tune in to gather travel advice, plan their next vacation or see places they may never get to visit. Over the years, the Travel Channel has incorporated an increasing number of food-related programs, reality-TV shows and ghost hunting expeditions. More
