All six of A+E Networks’ major cable channels will be launched on AT&T’s new streaming service DirecTV Now.
DirecTV Now is set to launch later this year with more than 100 channels.
"We are thrilled to team up with AT&T to offer our brands on the DirecTV Now platform at launch," said David Zagin, president, distribution, A+E Networks. "It's exciting for A+E Networks to continue to be at the leading front of the technology evolution. DirecTV Now will offer consumers a new way of receiving our content giving our viewers access to our strong portfolio of entertainment brands."
A&E, Lifetime, History, LMN, FYI and Viceland will be on DirecTV Now.
AT&T and DirecTV customers will be able to access and stream the service over a wired or wireless internet connection using a variety of connected devices without requiring additional hardware, satellites, long-term contracts or credit checks.
"A+E Networks is a welcome addition to the DirecTV Now platform," said Dan York, chief content officer for AT&T. "Customers of our new streaming service will have a wide array of programming choices they can access within minutes by just downloading the app and signing up.”
