Title Travel Channel
Description
(from Freebase)
The Travel Channel is a satellite and cable television channel that is headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, US. It features documentaries and how-to shows related to travel and leisure around the United States and throughout the world. Programming has included shows in African animal safaris, tours of grand hotels, and visits to significant cities and towns. However, recent programming is almost entirely focused on food, while other limited programming, such as Ghost Adventures, puts an emphasis on allegedly haunted locations. A new program titled "Deathwish Movers" follows the work of a moving crew as they attempt to place furniture in the upper floors of tall buildings. The network is available in 95 million homes in the United States. The Travel Channel was launched by Trans World Airlines on February 1, 1987, presumably to boost airline patronage. The name was derived from travel-related filler programming offered by the Home Theater Network premium cable service. TWA purchased...
