Watch Full Length HISTORY, A&E and Lifetime Shows on Your iPad


There is good news today for those of you who like to watch television programs on the A&E, HISTORY and Lifetime networks: a new series of apps are now available that “enable users to watch full episodes, full movies and exclusive clips of their favorite A+E Networks programming, including current and previous seasons of Storage Wars and Duck Dynasty on A&E; Pawn Stars and Swamp People on HISTORY; and Dance Moms and Project Runway on Lifetime.”

If you also happen to be a subscriber to Xfinity TV from Comcast, additional content like complete previous seasons is also available.

Describing their launch today, Dan Suratt, Executive Vice President of Digital Media and Business Development, A+E Networks stated:

“By offering the A&E, HISTORY and Lifetime watch apps, we are giving fans of our networks an opportunity to consume our leading libraries of original quality content wherever and whenever they want it.”

The apps are full-featured and give the ability to create watch-lists with a queue as well as letting you continue watching a program you began earlier, offering continuity even when you have been interrupted.

David Zagin, President of Distribution, A+E Networks promises that this is just a start:

“With our new apps, A+E Networks will be on the forefront of supporting the industry’s efforts toward TV Everywhere. We are looking forward to partnering with our distributors in the future to bring their customers more of our great programming.”

Each of the new apps can be downloaded now directly from the App Store:

Apps like these help to keep television networks relevant at a time when consumers are drastically changing their viewing habits. Days of sitting down in the family living room to watch a favorite program are a thing of the past and being handily replaced by mobile devices and spare time that is seemingly always on-the-go!

    There are a lot of shows on A&E and History that I love, but do I really need an app for all of my 250 channels? That would leave me with over 250 apps on my iPad just for TV. Who has space for that? This is why I absolutely love the DISH Remote Access app; I can stream all of my live channels and recordings from my DVR with just one app. I like to watch my local morning news shows on the train to my office at DISH every morning, but I could just as easily be streaming an episode of Ancient Aliens from my DVR at home.
