The History Channel Scandinavia is a television channel showing history-related programmes broadcasting to Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. The channel is operated by The History Channel UK, which is a joint venture between British Sky Broadcasting and A&E Television Networks, owner of the American The History Channel.

Programming is broadcast in English, but subtitles in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish are available. The channel launched on February 1, 2007, being only available on the Canal Digital satellite platform.

A high-definition version of the History Channel was launched in the Nordic region on December 13, 2007. It offers a separate schedule to the standard-definition version. [2]

The History Channel had previously been available in Scandinavia. It was launched in September 1997, broadcasting for three hours per day on the Analogue Viasat platform. Initially time-sharing with TV1000 Cinema, it was later moved to the Swedish TV8 channel and continued broadcasting there until November 2004 when Viasat launched their own history channel, Viasat History, in the Nordic region and closed down the History Channel.
