The channel launched on October 1, 2005, becoming the sixth Discovery network to launch in Italy. It showed lifestyle programmes targeting a female upper-class audience of 25- to 44-year-olds. It features both foreign programmes and Italian programmes produced for the channel.[2][3]

On April 7, 2009, the channel adopted a new logo and a new look. This look had previously been adopted by Discovery Real Time France.[4]

The channel broadcasts both foreign programmes and a few original Italian productions. Most acquired programmes were originally produced for the American TLC or the British Channel 4.
