History of the channel
The TV station was launched in 1996 with the launch of the AB Sat satellite package as a documentary channel based on travel, in competition with the CanalSatellite channel, Voyage. To begin with, it was called Evasions.
Since October 2007, the channel has changed ownership, joining with its defunct German cousin Terranova which ceased broadcast in July 2007, and which also showed documentary programmes. Escales took over the broadcast of many its programmes and is still in competition with Voyage.
It is a channel based on travel and tourism. Its programming looks at tourist destinations and travel.
The channel shows, in a series of documentaries, a country, a region of France, Europe or the world, to give a tourist guide of picturesque sites for visitors, places, or unusual activities.
