Time Warner Cable, A&E Nets Renew Carriage Pact

Time Warner Cable and A+E Networks have renewed their distribution agreement, the companies announced Thursday.

The new long-term multi-platform agreement, financial terms of which were not disclosed, keeps A+E's collection of networks -- which include A&E (home of Duck Dynasty, pictured), Lifetime, History, LMN, Bio, H2 -- on Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks systems.

It also provides the two operators' subscribers with access to more robust offering of the programmer's video on demand fare. For the first time, the deal makes TV Everywhere content available for TWC TV out-of-home platforms and gives subscribers authenticated access to various A+E Networks apps including History, A+E and Lifetime.

"We're pleased to extend our relationship with A+E Networks," said Jennifer Chun, senior VP, content acquisition for Time Warner Cable. "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."
