* [[DuelingShows Dueling Networks]]: Often seen as competing with DiscoveryChannel, both back when the two networks aired educational programming and now to see [[SnarkBait who can be king]] of NetworkDecay.

* FanNickname: The Hitler Channel in the early 2000s, though it doesn't apply in the current "conspiracy and reality TV" era.
** Fans have started calling it the Hysteria Channel as a result of its new focus on apocalypse/alien-related conspiracy theories.

* OfferVoidInNebraska: In Canada, there was a previously-unrelated network called History Television. Ads for History on A&E (which has historically been carried on cable in Canada) always reminded viewers that it was [[MemeticMutation "not available in Canada"]]. Thanks to NetworkDecay and an eventual over-reliance on History Channel programming, the network's current owner Shaw ultimately licensed the actual History Channel brand, and also re-branded {{SpikeTV}} clone The Cave (itself formerly [=MenTV=]) into H2.

[[NostalgiaFilter Besides tales of old]], the station is also noted for its weekly show of 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).
