Channel renaming

Discovery Communications will rename its Military Channel to American Heroes Channel effective March 3. This channel will debut in 62 million homes, promising to honor the great defenders of our freedom while providing a rare glimpse into major events that shaped our world and the trailblazers and unexpected advocates who made a difference.

Four episodes will air March 3-9. Each will be a world premiere, unveiling the startling truths and hidden histories behind each event. First to air will be, “Raw War: The Lost Film Of Dak To,” on Monday, March 3, at 9/8c followed by, “Against The Odds,” also on March 3, at 10/9c. These two initial shows will then be followed by “CIA: Declassified,” on Tuesday, March 4, 10/9c and “Codes and Conspiracies,” Sunday, March 9, at 10/9c.

Discovery Communications continues to bring factual and informative viewing to all.

Remember those flu shots. Speak to you again next week.
