The Military Channel is an American cable network dedicated to military history and warfare. Launched in 1998 as Discovery Wings, it has used its current name and format since 2005. It is one of the less successful networks in the Discovery family, and last week it was announced that it would be renamed "American Heroes Channel" on March 3. A logo was unveiled at the same time.
The unashamedly patriotic name signals a shift to more story-driven programming, "providing a rare glimpse into major events that shaped our world and the trailblazers and unexpected advocates who made a difference".
