Channel profile

National Geographic Channel is FOX Network Group’s global flagship factual entertainment channel, currently available in 43 local languages in over 495 million homes across 172 countries. National Geographic Channel inspires viewers through its smart, innovative programming that questions what we know, how we view the world and what drives us forward. NGC is a powerful global brand that combines a ground-breaking legacy with contemporary relevance and innovation. It has a reputation for high-quality programming that consistently resonates with audiences across the world. The channel itself is a contemporary extension of the historic National Geographic Society, showcasing inspiring and extraordinary documentaries on history, science, technology, disasters, mysteries, exploration, conservation and, of course, education. In 125 years, it’s undertaken over 10,000 expeditions, all driven by a single mission: to inspire people to care about the planet. We aim to connect our audience with the spirit of exploration and curiosity inherent in the National Geographic brand. Our programming aims to enrich lives and inspire meaningful connections, passions, and discovery.

Nat Geo Wild is the best, most intimate encounters with wildlife ever seen on television. Backed by its unparalleled reputation for quality and blue-chip programming, Nat Geo Wild is dedicated to providing a unique insight into the natural world, the environment and the amazing creatures that inhabit it. From the most remote environments, to the forbidding depths of our oceans, to the protected parks on our doorsteps, Nat Geo Wild uses spectacular cinematography and compelling storytelling to take viewers on unforgettable journeys into the wild world.
