Why is the history channel still considered a history channel when it shows all reality shows all the time?

It's called "The History Channel" because all the good shows that it used to show have become history.
Now it's the "Aliens, Sasquatch, and Guys who catch fish with their hands" channel.

The history channel is still considered a history channel because it brings history shows and also other episodes. It also mainly concentrates on the history shows more than other TV shows.

Nope it doesn't . They have developed a History 2 Channel for true History shows.

You are right. The History Channel has become this. To compensate, they have now developed a History 2 Channel which has actual History on it. However, I don't know if it's accessible to everyone with cable. Good question you've asked. It's all about money. People love those reality shows and it makes good money for the channel.

Great answer. I was going with something similar. It's sad. TLC used to be The LEARNING Channel.. Now I think it's the home of Honey Boo Boo.

I can't really answer that...but some of the reality shows include at least SOME history... I think most of the full fledged history shows come on early in the morning,when everyone is asleep
