A&E was one the first television networks to add on-demand programming to its iOS apps, and now the company has added live television streaming. Both the A&E and History mobile apps have been updated with a new "LIVE TV" option for cable subscribers.
The A&E app for the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad offers access to full episodes, exclusive clips and deleted scenes from popular shows such as Duck Dynasty and Storage Wars. The History app from A&E features full episodes and clips from shows like Vikings, Pawn Stars and so on. Each app also allows users to create a customized "Watchlist," and access never before seen footage from their favorite shows.
Unfortunately A&E and History channel content is only available in the US, and both apps require a TV provider subscription to access the live stream.
The A&E app is available for free on the Apple App Store, and version 2.0.0 is now available as an OTA update for existing users.The History app is also available for free on the Apple App Store. Both apps are compatible with all devices running iOS 6.0 or later.
