It has been said many times that in order to understand the present day, an understanding of history is imperative. When it comes to learning about historical events, many people end their education when they finish formal education. Yet with History, just one of many educational channels on satellite TV, millions of people are re-connecting with the past and learning about histories around the world.

Although ‘History’ along became the official name a bit over two years ago, many people still reference the station as The History Channel. Over the past fifteen years, the channel has established itself as a creator of fascinating series, multi-part documentaries, and additional programs that focus on the recent past. Some criticism has naturally been made regarding programming that includes conjecture and speculation, with some people even dubbing the station ‘The Pseudo-History Channel’ or ‘The Hysteria Channel.’ In spite of these critiques, History still offers a range of captivating programs that serve educational purposes as much as they entertain.

One of the most intriguing History series is ‘Cities of the Underworld,’ which provides a unique perspective into the history of some of the most important cities throughout the modern age. High definition imagery and skillful production transports viewers to cities around the world. Traveling back in time, from decades to centuries in the past, episodes offer insights into places as varied as ‘Dracula’s Underground’ in Romania, to the ‘A-Bomb Underground’ in Tokyo and Hiroshima. In under an hour, every episode will expand the way you think about big metropolitan areas from New York and London to Rome and Istanbul.

If you want to travel further back in time and learn about past inventions, ‘Ancient Discoveries’ is the program to check out. Over six years there were tons of great episodes made, each of which tells the story of inventions thought to be made in the ancient world. Geographically, episodes of this documentary television series cover technologies thought to have been developed in the Roman Empire, Egypt, China, and the Islamic world.

When it comes to learning in-depth about specific subjects and things, ‘Modern Marvels’ still takes the cake for History fans. Since the network itself broadcast fifteen years ago, the series has grown with the times and it continues to attract viewers across the country. Whether in rural areas or city landscapes, viewers with satellite TV tune in to ‘Modern Marvels’ to obtain comprehensive, historical information that is presented in an entertaining format. Episodes focus on human achievements in engineering, agriculture, technology, and more. From learning about the Transcontinental Railroad to the advances in agriculture that affect what you eat, each ‘Modern Marvels’ show is packed with educational content.

Regardless of where you live, History is just one of the channels available in HD via a satellite TV signal. Rather than waste minutes watching programs you do not even enjoy, the service gives your household access to tons of educational programs. Learning about history has never been so enjoyable or so accessible for people of all ages.
