Launched on January 1, 1995, the channel is owned by A&E joint venture (Hearst, Disney, NBC).....
The History Channel received the nickname "The Hitler Channel" for its extensive coverage of World War II, though much military-themed programming has now been shifted to its sister network, the Military History Channel, and the network's programming now covers a diverse range of topics on history and hypothetical future events.
The U.S.-based network has also been criticized for devoting most of its coverage to US and Western history.
 Their sister network, History International, also seems to have a focus on American history.
The network has also received criticism for emphasizing the history of relatively recent times, as opposed to ancient or medieval eras.
