Originally part of the UKTV Network, the Home channel launched in April 2009, taking on the home and gardening shows that had previously appeared on the UKTV Style channel. Initially a subscription channel, it was later moved to FTA status on Freeview with carriage on Freesat following most recently in 2017.

Home was spun out from the UKTV network into Discovery ownership in June 2019. This was as part of a split deal between previous joint UKTV owners BBC Studios and Discovery Networks which saw Discovery take on the lifestyle channels from the group.

Home (Dog - Short) - 2017

Idents on Home consist of shots of various homes with small annotations overlaid as the camera pans around. Similar to other UKTV channels, two length variants of their idents exist, with shorter ones usually being used without announcement during daytime, and the longer ones with continuity used during the peak hours. This is a short variant of the version featuring a dog.

Home (Dog - Long) - 2017

A longer version of the dog ident, this time showing more shots from the outside too.

Instead of a dog, there's a cat this time - still on the sofa. Short version of this one.

Home (Cat - Long) - 2017
