Videos of HGTV programming are not for sale, but a variety of HGTV programs are accessible through Video On Demand. For a current listing, consult the HGTV Video On Demand monthly program guide.

How can I find out whether a show will air again?

In the Shows section, you can search by show name to view the re-air dates available for the next 30 days.

Why did you change your air schedule?

HGTV refreshes its schedule with new series and new episodes of existing series periodically throughout the year. In doing so, we sometimes move a few programs to different time periods to try to achieve a better combination of programming. We consider these changes very carefully and do our very best to keep the schedule as convenient as possible for the most number of viewers.

Why aren't HGTV schedules in my local television guide?

Local newspaper editors determine which networks to list in their weekly program guides. HGTV does not have the authority to demand that these papers include HGTV programming in their lineups, but we're working hard to encourage them to include us in their listings. If your paper does not include HGTV, write or call the editors of your newspaper to make your request.

Does HGTV offer a magazine or program guide for sale?

Are all HGTV programs closed-captioned?

As a commitment to our hearing-impaired audience and to comply with FCC guidelines, all HGTV programming will eventually be closed-captioned. A large portion of our programming library is already captioned, and the process to add this feature to all HGTV shows is an ongoing priority.

May I submit program ideas to HGTV?

HGTV appreciates your interest in suggesting ideas, but for legal reasons, we only accept show/series and specials proposals from television production companies with national or major market production credentials.
