The original idents for Viasat History featured a man in a gyroscope surrounded by historical images. They were created by a Bristol-based company called Olaus Roe.
On December 8, 2009, Viasat History got a new look and a new logo. Viasat Explorer and Viasats other pay channels in Eastern Europe (TV1000, TV1000 Russkoe Kino, TV1000 Action and Viasat Sport) were rebranded at the same time. The rebrand was made by Design for Media and Communication, who had previously redesigned most Viasat-owned channels.
