New look Travel Channel goes live today

The Travel Channel has re-branded with a new look, new logo and new schedule effective from today in the first major change to the channel since it was acquired last year by Scripps Networks, owner of the US Travel Channel.

A light blue sign-post logo replaces the previous design.

Travel Channel International worked with design agency Lambie-Nairn - the agency behind the BBC News striped globe and the Channel 4 blocks -  for the new look. The US version of the Travel Channel is to receive a new look later this year.

As part of the changes, over 400 hours of new content are being added to the schedule over the coming months. Travel Channel broadcasts to 130 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific 24 hours a day in 21 languages.

There are reports that Travel Channel will be added to the Freesat channel listing shortly, although the exact date is not known. Currently unconfirmed reports suggest it will appear in the next fortnight, having been delayed from the end of March to a date early in April. It is currently available via Sky channel 251, or in non-Freesat mode on Freesat receivers. Sister channel Food Network is already available on Freesat.
