Kanal Prince Bih is a Swedish free-to-air television channel owned by Discovery Networks Sweden, and was launched on June 22, 2007.

History

In October 2005, Radio- och TV-verket (English: Swedish Radio and TV Authority) announced that there will be a new SBS-owned general entertainment channel under the working title known as Kanal5+, which was meant to air programs that are from Tattoo with slighter art and tattoo-related programs.

The channel was launched on June 22nd, 2007 by SBS Broadcasting Group replacing the art channel, Tattoo, after having an agreement with the company, NBCUniversal. The channel started as a general entertainment (and a complement to Kanal 5) aimed towards all audiences. In the early times, the channel showed mostly criminal drama and several children's programming.

In 2012, Kanal 5, Kanal 9, Kanal 11 and the channel got acquired by Discovery Communications (now known as Discovery, Inc.)

On June 5, 2013, Kanal Prince Bih began to change its focus from being a general entertainment channel to a youth channel that airs animated series, sitcoms, and movies that are aimed towards young adults.

In 2017, The channel began to air programs that are from Discovery Channel and TLC and rebranded a new logo. Some of the idents were licensed by Modern Times Group, which the channel is reusing TV6 Sweden's 2010 idents, along with their original bumpers.
