TLC is a television channel broadcasting to several countries in Latin America. It was originally known as Discovery Travel & Adventure Channel and featured more adventure-related programmes. On February 1, 2005, the channel changed its name to Discovery Travel & Living and changed to lifestyle programming about travel, food, design, architecture and luxury. In November 1, 2011, it was relaunched as "TLC: Travel & Living Channel" as part of the international roll-out of the TLC brand and the premiere of additional programming. In late 2012, "Travel & Living Channel" was dropped from the channel's name and replaced with the Discovery logo on the channel's logo.

Operating channels

  • TLC Latin America (Spanish Audio, with English SAP in some areas)
  • TLC Brazil (dedicated feed for Brazil, with Portuguese audio or subtitles and local advertisements, adjusted for the local time zone, but with basically the same programming as its Spanish-language counterpart)
  • TLC HD (instead of being a full simulcast of TLC, the all-HD channel features programming from TLC and Discovery Home & Health, with a single feed to the entire region, with separate audio and subtitle channels in Spanish and Portuguese. However, on March 16, 2015, the Brazilian version of TLC HD merged in full simulcast with TLC Brazil and the former TLC HD was replaced by a new all-HD channel called Discovery World, which maintained the same programming of the old channel)
