Reasons to believe

REAL Our viewers love HISTORY’s mavericks because they are genuine people they can relate to, they are down to earth, and just like them. HISTORY’s programming values are defined by what defines the mavericks themselves.

BOLD Mavericks stand out from the crowd, so HISTORY must stand out too. We go where other brands won’t go, show things other brands won’t show, and say things other brands won’t say.

GUTSY Our men and women are spirited and rebellious. They are outliers and outriders. They go for impact in everything they do, without compromise.
