About HGTV

HGTV stands for home. And for nearly 30 years, we’ve been a part of yours.



Who We Are

HGTV launched as a cable network in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1994, and quickly became a daily viewing habit in millions of households and beyond. Since its inception, HGTV has inspired and influenced major trends in design, outdoor living and real estate with hit series like House Hunters, Property Brothers, Love It or List It, Fixer Upper and Home Town.

Today, we’re not only on TV but also online at HGTV.com and across social media, at the newsstand with HGTV Magazine, in stores with branded products like the HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams paint collection, and now, as part of the Warner Bros. Discovery family, we’re streaming on Max.

We’ve grown, but we’ve stayed true to our roots. HGTV shares advice based on expertise, and tips and tricks based on experience. We get our hands dirty. We’re known for vibrant, colorful design that matches the host’s style or the homeowner’s personality.

More than anything, HGTV loves telling authentic, inclusive stories about home – whatever home means to you – and providing information and inspiration you can really use. After 30 years, that remains the same.

HGTV Digital

On our digital platforms, we publish and update content daily.

Our editors share the latest news about HGTV shows and talent, with insider info about their lives and homes. Meanwhile, HGTV gardening experts provide advice based on hands-on experience while our shopping editors test and review products from vacuums to fire pits to sheets. For our YouTube channels, our digital video producers tour homes from across the country and go behind the scenes with network talent. We also delight in sharing every detail about HGTV Dream Home, the annual sweepstakes home our audience has been able to enter to win for 25+ years.

We send all the latest and greatest content and updates about sweepstakes, shows, talent, decorating, gardening, cleaning, shopping and more in our daily newsletters tailored to your interests. You’ll also find exclusive content on HGTV’s social platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
