In October 2016 a local version of the franchise, Say Yes to the Dress: Australia launched in both countries and was hosted by Adam Dixon.

In January 2019, the channel aired season one of Dr Pimple Popper, starring YouTube sensation Dr Sandra Lee. It was a ‘breakout’ hit for the channel and season two launched in July 2019.

History

The channel launched as Discovery Travel & Adventure in 2004. In October 2005, it rebranded as Discovery Travel & Living, using programming from that branch of Discovery Communications. It was formerly available on SelecTV from March 2007 until the closure of its English service in late 2010.[1][2] On 1 September 2010, Discovery Travel & Living rebranded as the Travel and Living Channel, or TLC. Unlike the channel TLC in the United States whose acronym originally stood for The Learning Channel, the TLC service in Australia is an acronym for Travel and Living Channel. The channel also converted to 16:9 aspect ratio during the conversion.[3] Over time, it took on programming from the American TLC brand.

On 3 November 2014, TLC's sister channel Discovery Home & Health closed and was replaced with Discovery Kids. As a result, a variety of Home & Health's programming moved to TLC.[4] In addition, Foxtel moved TLC from channel 646 to channel 130, and TLC+2 from channel 647 to channel 166.[5] [6] On 1 September 2015 Sky TV New Zealand will launch TLC on Sky 016 as part of a wider reshuffle of Sky Channels [7] Say Yes to the Dress: Australia, an international adaptation of the Say Yes to the Dress format from the United States, featuring couture wedding gown designer Adam Dixon, will become the first local production on the channel when it debuts in 2016.[8]
