U.S. cable network Smithsonian Channel has launched on Time Warner Cable’s (TWC) Preferred TV Package, making the U.S. cable network available in 30 million American homes.

Effective immediately, the channel is available in both standard and high definition on the company’s more widely-distributed subscriber package.

“Being a part of Time Warner Cable’s Preferred TV package is a major step in the development of Smithsonian Channel,” said Tom Hayden, the network’s president, in a statement. “These additional subscribers will allow for our unique brand of non-fiction storytelling to be seen by a whole new audience. I could not think of a better to way to start off 2014.”

Smithsonian Channel launched in 2007 and is a joint venture between Showtime Networks and the Smithsonian Institution. It is available in roughly 70 million U.S. pay-TV households.
