The Travel Channel

The Travel Channel launched on February 1, 1987, under the ownership of Trans World Airlines. The name was derived from travel-related filler programming broadcast on premium cable channel Home Theater Network. TWA purchased the rights to the Travel Channel name from HTN owner Group W Satellite Communications in 1986, and the Travel Channel took over HTN's satellite transponder position after that network ceased operations in January 1987. This logo was used before Discovery Communications bought the channel.

Travel Channel 2014

In 2014, the 2D logos were removed in favor of a 3D logo, and new on-screen animations were seen soon after.


Travel Channel 2018

On October 1, 2018, Travel Channel updated its logo stylized as Trvl Channel, and shifted its programming to focus on "the paranormal, the unsolved, the creepy and terrifying", akin to its counterpart Destination America when they drifted to paranormal programming themselves full-time in mid-2017. This was also to coincide with the channel being sold back to Discovery Inc., since the channel was previously owned by Scripps Networks Interactive, and Scripps was sold to Discovery in 2018. This logo is designed by Primal Screen.
