Discovery Family (formerly Discovery Kids, The Hub, and the Hub Network) is a Digital cable and satellite television television network in the United States. Discovery Family replaced the Hub Network, the Hub, and Discovery Kids and has a joint venture of both Discovery Communications, Inc. and Hasbro.[1] The headquarters for the television channel is in Silver Spring, Maryland. The Hub (later became the Hub Network) launched at 10:00 am ET (9:00 am CT) on October 16, 2010 and took over the Discovery Kids channel space after a final marathon of Kenny the Shark. The very first program aired on The Hub was The Twisted Whiskers Show. The channel is 40% owned by Hasbro and 60% owned by Discovery Communications, Inc.[2]

Discovery Family tried to advertise towards children and their families by offering a range of content to choose from. These include history, science, food and family living. Movies air as well. The channel maintained some of the Hub's content until it slowly went away. Also, My Little Pony, however, has stayed on the channel.
