The program is mainly directed at women between the ages of 20 and 49, and will focus on non-fiction entertainment programs, some of which will be taken over by TLC US and will be partly produced in-house.[2] The main focus will be on documentaries, reports and magazines.[3] The channel is advertised with the slogan Hier spielt das Leben..[4] Jana Ina Zarrella was appointed as the host of the station.[5]


In September 2013, Discovery Networks Germany announced that it would launch the TLC television format established in the United States in spring 2014 in Germany. In mid-December 2013, the Bayerische Landeszentrale für neue Medien (BLM) issued a license for eight years from the date of dispatch.[3] In May 2016, the on-air design and the logo changed slightly and were enriched with emojis, which is known from the online domain.[6][7]
