Discovery Real Time is a factual television channel owned by Discovery Networks Europe.
It was originally launched in the UK in March 1992 as TLC, a British version of the US channel of the same name. It was initially broadcast as a daytime channel from Intelsat, mostly aimed at cable systems where it would broadcast on the Discovery Channel's frequency.
When the Discovery Channel launched on Astra in July 1993, it didn't initially carry TLC in the daytime. From 1994, it shared a transponder on the Astra 1C satellite with the Discovery Channel, which started its broadcasts at 4 p.m. (GMT).
It was later rebranded as Discovery Home & Leisure in April 1997.
Full day broadcasting started with the launch of Sky Digital in 1998. In May 2001, a timeshift channel called Discovery Home & Leisure +1 was launched.
From 1997 to 2002, the logo was blue. From 2002 to 2005, the logo was red.
The channel was relaunched under its current name on May 7, 2005 in the UK market. The channel is now aimed as complementing the female-skewed Discovery Home & Health (which itself replaced Discovery Health).
Discovery Real Time is also available in some other regions, including France and Italy. The channel used to be available in Asia, but since October 2008, it has become the Asian version of Discovery Turbo.
