Launched in February of 1987, the Travel Channel is the only television network devoted exclusively to travel entertainment. The Travel Channel is a dedicated and trusted window on the world, bringing knowledge, insight and information to a community of people who want to experience their world and satisfy their curiosity.
Approaching travel as a life cycle, the Travel Channel is the cornerstone of Travel Channel Media, an integrated multi-platform travel business wholly owned by Cox Communications. Travel Channel Media offers a vast array of consumer touch points that directly engage veteran travelers ready to plot their next trip, novice travelers not quite sure where to go, and armchair travelers who are just along for the ride.
