A&E (TV channel)

A&E is an American cable television network. It is the flagship television property of A&E Networks, a joint venture between the Hearst Communications and Disney–ABC Television Group subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. The network is headquartered in New York City and operates offices in Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; London, United Kingdom; Los Angeles, California and Stamford, Connecticut.

The network was originally founded in 1984 as the Arts & Entertainment Network, initially focusing on fine arts, documentaries (including its then-flagship series ''Biography''), and dramas (including imported series from the United Kingdom). In 1995, the network rebranded as A&E, in an effort to downplay the negative perceptions of arts programming and generally market the network as a "thought-provoking" alternative to other television channels. In 2002, A&E began to gradually focus more on reality series and docusoaps, as well as documentary miniseries and true crime programs, in an effort to attract younger viewers, at the expense of phasing out its arts programming. By 2017, A&E had also phased out scripted programs.

As of July 2015, A&E is available to approximately 95,968,000 pay television households (82.4% of households with television) in the United States. The U.S. version of the channel is being distributed in Canada while international versions were launched for Australia, Latin America, and Europe. Provided by Wikipedia
