A&E Networks announced today it has reached a long- term agreement to have its various cable networks continue to be carried by DirecTV and AT&T’s U-verse TV.
“The new agreement delivers to AT&T terms that reflect its new scale and status as the largest pay TV provider in the world,” according to AT&T. AT&T is the parent company of El Segundo-based DirecTV.
A&E Networks includes A&E, Lifetime and History. It will soon replace H2 with Viceland, an entertainment network featuring shows to be led by Oscar- winning writer/director Spike Jonze.
