HistoryEdit

In September 2013, Discovery Networks Germany announced that it would launch the TLC television format established in the United States in spring 2014 in Germany. In mid-December 2013, the Bayerische Landeszentrale für neue Medien (BLM) issued a license for eight years from the date of dispatch.[3] In May 2016, the on-air design and the logo changed slightly and were enriched with emojis, which is known from the online domain.[6][7]
