The History Channel rebranded to Fox History & Entertainment in 2008 and gradually turned into a lifestyle channel. History returned to Indian television on 9 October 2011[2] as History TV18, owned by AETN18 Network, a joint venture between A&E Networks and TV18. Later, in 2016, AETN18 launched FYI TV18.

An HD feed was launched in October 2011 along with Colors HD and CNBC-TV18 Prime HD.

The logo was the same as the SD feed until August 2017, when an HD wordmark was added.[3] This came a few weeks after History TV18 adopted History’s new global branding identity.[4]
