In the wake of Discovery Health becoming OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network last month, more changes are afoot. For those who may be missing some of the medical and baby type shows that were on Discovery Health (a few of those do remain on OWN), you should find what you are looking for as FitTV is renamed Discovery Fit & Health starting today.
According to Discovery, the newly named network will “entertain viewers with gripping, real-life dramas featuring storytelling that chronicles the human experience from the cradle to the grave. Calling on the network’s long history of health programming, content will include forensic mysteries, amazing medical stories, emergency room trauma dramas, baby and pregnancy programming, parenting challenges, and stories of extreme life conditions, supercharged with a new slate of premiere series and important specials.”
Discovery Fit & Health will continue hit franchises previously seen on Discovery Health, including Dr. G: Medical Examiner, 911: The Bronx, Untold Stories of the ER, I’m Pregnant and … and more. Early mornings will offer FitTV workout programming like Bodies in Motion with Gilad, Namaste Yoga, Shimmy and others. Discovery Health’s popular theme weeks , such as Baby Week and Psych Week, will also transfer to Discovery Fit & Health. In addition to these established shows, the new network will be developing original productions and acquiring programming from around the world.
And, for fans of Discovery Health’s more sensationally titled shows, fear not. After a quick look at this week’s upcoming programming on Discovery Fit & Health, we see that you can find The Women With 15 Personalities, World’s Strongest Toddler, Sex Change! and 650-lb Virgin.
