Viasat History is a pan Nordic and pan East European television channel showing factual programming on history, culture and society. With headquarters based in London, United Kingdom, the channel started its broadcasts in the Scandinavian countries and after a few years expanded to many East European markets including the Baltic countries.

Viasat History does not produce any programmes of its own but acquires programming from American and European production houses. Many programmes originate from BBC or PBS and are 3 to 10 years old before broadcast.

The channel is now a 24-hour service in direct competition with the History Channel and the National Geographic Channel. Since 2012, Viasat History together with sisterchannels Viasat Explore and Viasat Nature are broadcast in HD together with the SD feed on the Viasat satellite platform.
