Multi-platform delivery is included for the following channels. A&E, Lifetime, History, LMN, Bio, H2, History en Espanol, Crime & Investigation Network, Military History and Lifetime Real Women.
TWC and Bright House will deliver video through A&E apps such as History, A+E and Lifetime for multi-screen / TV Everywhere delivery.
Additional terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Time Warner Cable’s senior vice president of content acquisition Jennifer Chun said, “"We’re pleased to extend our relationship with A+E Networks. We’ve enjoyed a strong partnership with A&E for many years, and their programming is valuable to our customers. Now they will be able to enjoy even more of this content on multiple platforms.”
