The HGTV program schedule can be viewed in advance until the end of the following month, or approximately six weeks. Short for Home and Garden Television, HGTV is a home improvement, remodeling and garden television channel on both basic cable and satellite.
HGTV won the Academy of Achievement Award at the Annual Accessories Resource Team gala event in 2011 and the Dixon Award for Best TV Channel in 2012. Most of its shows center around buying real estate, such as "House Hunters" and "Island Life," or renovating a fixer-upper, such as "Property Brothers" and "Rehab Addict." HGTV also broadcasts shows about crafts, such as "Ellen's Design Challenge," and about gardening.
