[[NetworkDecay Then]] the channel went through a phase where it was obsessed with ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode'', aliens and [[ApocalypseHow the apocalypse]]. Nowadays, the lineup has favored documentary-style reality shows: Some (''Series/PawnStars'', ''Series/AmericanPickers'') occasionally have something do to with history, especially Americana. Others (''Series/AxMen'', ''Series/IceRoadTruckers'', the [[CulturalTranslation American version of]] ''Series/{{Top Gear|US}}'') [[NetworkDecay don't]]. On most days, there's almost no history-related programming on the schedule. You might get lucky if it's a holiday or other day of historical significance. A sister channel, ''H2'' (formerly ''History International''), was closer to the original History Channel in terms of "historical" programming, though it did adopt a lot of the paranormal programming as well once the name changed. It was replaced in 2016 by ''Viceland'', a joint venture of A&E Networks of the Canadian Vice Media centered around documentaries. Also in the mix is ''Military History'', which reruns History's massive backlog of military-oriented programming; it's fairly obscure (not many TV providers carry it) and doesn't broadcast in HD at all, so who knows how much longer it's going to be around.

[[NostalgiaFilter Besides tales of old]], the station is also noted for its weekly show of Series/ModernMarvels which details the history of everyday and not-so-everyday things. History also occasionally plays movies (including original made-for-TV movies), usually either pertaining to a historical event (two of the movies History Channel commissioned were about [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy JFK]] and the infamous Hatfields-[=McCoys=] feud, the latter being one of the most well-received television movies the year it aired) or are historical/cultural artifacts in themselves (it once aired ''Film/DirtyHarry'' for example).

The History Channel is a network that dedicates itself (or [[NetworkDecay once dedicated itself, depending on who you ask]]) to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin history]]. The network was particularly famous for its sometimes [[AdoredByTheNetwork excessive]] coverage of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII leading some to call it [[FanNickName The Hitler Channel]].
