Living Channel is a New Zealand television station. The channel focuses entirely on programming relating to lifestyle and is similar to The LifeStyle Channel in Australia or HGTV in the US. It broadcasts on Sky TV in New Zealand and features local programming as well as a range of international programming. It features programming in areas such as design, health, well-being, travel, pets, fashion, automotive, antiques, gardening, fitness, art and homemaking. Programmes include Antiques Roadshow UK, Jon and Kate Plus 8, Greatest Cities of the World with Griff Rhys Jones, Grand Designs, Homes Under the Hammer, Better Homes and Gardens, Holmes Inspection, Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, Location Location Location, What Not To Wear and The Secret Millionaire.

Since its launch Living has proven a surprise hit for Sky TV, especially its food and cuisine programming block, which no doubt was a major factor in the creation of its sister station, Food Television in 2005.
