Eurochannel was originally created by Televisão Abril (TVA) in Brazil in 1994, then released by DirecTV in that country. In 2000, the channel was acquired by a joint venture of Canal + subsidiary Multithematiques Inc. and Vivendi.

In 2004, Gustavo Vainstein, former executive at Noos, a French cable operator, took control of the channel. Since 2004, the channel develops its programming content and also creates its own events such as the Eurochannel Tour of Short Films. While being available in Latin America and the US, the company starts expanding its coverage worldwide and in April 2013 picks Eutelsat 16A to extend its reach in sub-Saharian Africa.[1]

In 2015, the channel continues its expansion in different regions, including availability in countries like South Korea, India [2] and South Africa.[3]

In South Korea, Eurochannel was launched on 17 July 2015.
