Warner Bros Discovery (WBD) will launch a local variant of its American cable channel TLC in France, the company announced this week.

The channel will replace Discovery Science on cable, satellite and IPTV systems in the region, and will target female TV viewers with a line-up of dating shows, medical science programs, paranormal series and family-oriented content.

“We are happy to launch TLC in France, a channel that celebrates diversity and inclusion,” said Clément Schwebig, the President of WBD’s Western Europe and Africa business. “We are thus completing our portfolio of brands with a new destination for a female audience aged 25-49.”

TLC France will debut February 26 on television platforms like SFR, Free and Parabole Réunion. The channel will also be available to stream through the Warner Pass sold via Amazon’s Prime Video Channels.

Regional variants of TLC are also expected to debut on cable, satellite and streaming platforms in Switzerland, Belgium and Monaco in the coming weeks.
