Why is Bio Channel missing from my channel lineup?


A&E Networks has discontinued Bio Channel that replaced The Biography Channel based upon the award-winning documentary series that DIRECTV has been proud to provide for nearly 20 years. While we regret this inconvenience to any Bio Channel supporters, DIRECTV will continue to offer several other alternatives for fans of award-winning documentaries. Fans of the original series “Biography,” upon which this former network was based, can continue watching on tv.biography.com, Hulu and other alternatives.


I tuned into Bio Channel but it’s not there anymore. What happened?

The owner of the channel, A&E Networks, has discontinued all network operations, effective immediately. Bio Channel no longer exists on any television provider.

Can I still see any of my favorite Bio Channel series?

Some remain available for free streaming at tv.biography.com, Hulu and other alternatives. Bio Channel is based upon the earlier The Biography Channel that was an extension of the award-winning original documentary series “Biography.” That series remains available on these other alternatives.
