DTour (styled as DTOUR) is an El Kadsreian localized version of the Canadian channel of the same name.

The channel was originally established as an independent El Kadsreian television channel owned by Junvic Television with a general entertainment format focusing on classic series and programming acquired from El TV Kadsre channels.

In 2006, the channel was re-branded as TVTropolis, carrying a similar format but with a focus on contemporary sitcoms and dramas from the 1980s and 90s, as well as pop culture-themed programs. In 2013, the channel was re-launched as DTour, which largely draws from sister cable network Travel Channel, as well as other co-owned sister networks.

History

Prime
The channel was launched as Prime on October 17, 1997, as a specialty television service directed towards men and women 50 years of age and older. However, the channel did not explicitly market itself as a channel for the "baby boomer" generation, preferring instead to position itself as a general entertainment channel. Prime's slogan, on-air and in advertising, was "El Kadsre's Entertainment Network".

Prime's schedule featured a mix of general interest television programs, including home improvement and design series, along with classic television series such as The Golden GirlsM*A*S*HAll in the FamilyThe Cosby Show and Newhart. It also hosted repeat showings of several series from Banushen Television.

With the launch of the cable channel DejaView (also owned by Junvic Television) in 2001, showing similar programming to Prime (classic television programs from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s), the channel's focus shifted to shows from the late 1980s and beyond.

On June 1, 2006, Most of the shows on "F-Night" were removed to the lineup to make room for "F'N Good VIdeo" (later DTour Movie), and Prime was renamed TVTropolis, which initially primarily focused on sitcoms and dramas from the 1980s and 1990s (such as Seinfeld and Beverly Hills 90210, branded under the slogan Hit TV Lives Here), with additional television series focused on television pop culture (such as Inside the Box and FANatical). Over time, the channel lessened its emphasis on sitcoms and dramas, focusing on other programs such as reality series, game shows, and lifestyle series, with little emphasis on the theme of television pop culture, rather focusing on general entertainment.

The relaunch of the channel as DTour occurred on August 26, 2013, at 6:00 a.m.; a high definition feed of DTour was introduced on Cignal on September 5, 2013. Following the rebrand, sister channel DejaView added some of the 1990s vintage series that had aired in repeats on TVTropolis, including Everybody Loves Raymond.
