History

Launched in September 13, 1999 and originally named Discovery Science, its name changed to The Science Channel in 2002 only in United States. A complete "makeover" took place in April 2003, airing newer and more up-to-date television programming.

In December 2007, Science Channel debuted a brand new on-air look and changed its logo to an element box that is colored orange and white.

International versions of Science Channel are transmitted in South East Asia, Europe, and Australia as Discovery Science.

Science Channel HD

Science Channel also has a high definition simulcast, Science Channel HD, that launched September 1, 2007.

Programming

Science Channel broadcasts a number of science-related television series and films originally produced by or aired on The Discovery Channel, e.g. Beyond Tomorrow, among some others. There have also been a few television programs produced for The Science Channel, such as MegaScience and What The Ancients Knew. Programs from other Discovery Networks, PBS and the BBC are either regularly or occasionally aired. Television series produced in the 1990s, e.g. Discover Magazine, and Understanding, can be viewed on weekdays.
