About us

BLAZE is an entertainment channel which celebrates people who achieve the extraordinary through determination and courage. We celebrate real people and their stories. People who defy convention and follow their inner fire to live life their own way. We are driven to tell their immersive, inspiring stories – stories of unique people who’ve tapped into something deep within themselves to live remarkable lives. American by nature, but distinctly British by nurture, BLAZE raises the flag for real people who boldly follow their own path.

Consistently the fastest growing channel aimed at men* on Digital Terrestrial Television, BLAZE continues to trail a blaze with UK free to air premieres of big hitting factual shows like Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, Wicked Tuna, Highway Thru Hell and Forged in Fire.

BLAZE also shines a light on home grown content with global launches of shows like Flipping Bangers.

BLAZE is the only channel to see outside of paid platforms the hit mystery sensation The Curse of Oak Island and the heroes of the wilds Mountain Men.

BLAZE is available across the UK on free to air platforms FREESAT and FREEVIEW. Also on paid TV platforms SKY and VIRGIN.
