In May 2014, HGTV decided not to air the Benham Brothers' show Flip It Forward from the network, over a controversy regarding their beliefs concerning homosexuality and their pro-life beliefs.In 1997, Atlantis Communications and Scripps Networks launched a Canadian version of HGTV as a Category B specialty channel.
The square with the "G" in it was removed, the roof was increased in size and the "HGTV" letters are now set in Gotham Black (from the original mixture of Futura and Times New Roman), with the other Gotham fonts being used around the network. About 90 percent of the channel's programming consisted of original productions at launch, with ten percent licensed and rerun from Canadian channels, PBS, and other sources. Burton Jablin, as Vice President of Programming, set the tone and oversaw the production of the early series.On 1 July 2016, HGTV launched in Indonesia on Indovision.HGTV was honored with the Academy of Achievement Award for their significant impact on the home and garden décor industry at the 22nd Annual Accessories Resource Team (ARTS) gala event on January 2, 2011.Through a series of acquisitions over the years, Corus Entertainment became Scripps Networks' partner in the network.
The Canadian version features much of the same programming as the U. channel, along with domestically-produced programs—some of which (such as Love It or List It and Property Brothers) have also been picked up by the U. channel (and in turn, have ranked among their most popular programs).
During its development, the channel was originally named the Home, Lawn, and Garden Channel.
The name was later shortened and a logo was developed.
