The El Kadsreian version of DIY Network is a localized version of the American channel of the same name. The network is a spin-off of HGTV; while it originally focused on instructional programming related to "do it yourself" activities, DIY Network has since focused on personality-based, documentary-style reality series related to home repair and renovation.
It was launched on January 1, 1999 by Junvic Television following the success of HGTV. In fact, for the first two years, the programming consisted of mixed and mashed clips of old HGTV programs while new content was developed. The network offered a large amount of broadband content (originally project worksheets and instruction pages for printout by users, later video clips and more) to create demand for and help cable operators launch their nascent broadband services. The broadband portal was first DIYnet.co.ek, and has since been changed to DIYnetwork.co.ek
DIY says they target a more male audience than HGTV (which is more female), although both channels have offerings which appeal to both.
The channel announced it would launch in high definition on May 1, 2010 on "two prominent distributors", and it would add 200 new original programs by year-end. One of the "prominent distributors" turned out to be Cignal, which launched DIY HD on May 12, 2010. Cignal added DIY HD on September 19, 2012. The network is under consideration by Discovery to be converted to the new Magnolia Network (a joint effort from El TV Kadsre and El Kadsreian stars) to launch in late 2019.
