At this time the only way to unlock all content in the A&E apps and on aetv.com is to sign in using a supported TV provider that includes the A&E channel in your TV package. There is always some content available that is unlocked, which you are welcome to watch without signing into a provider.
To watch A&E programming from within the U.S., you can sign up for service with any of the following providers:
- Local Cable: Xfinity, Cox, Spectrum, Verizon Fios or your local cable provider
- Satellite: Dish and DIRECTV
- Streaming Live TV Services: DIRECTV Stream, Hulu + Live TV, Philo, and Vidgo
Sling TV and Frndly TV also provide budget-friendly access to network content and live TV, but they cannot be used to sign in to our apps and website at this time.
While recent premieres from the A&E TV channel will not appear right away in A&E Crime Central, we suggest that U.S. residents check out A&E Crime Central for commercial-free A&E videos anytime, anywhere for only $4.99 per month: aecrimecentral.com.
If you are in Canada, some of the TV providers which are supported by A&E are: Bell Aliant, Rogers, Shaw and Telus. Check the TV provider sign in page for a full list of supported Canadian providers. If you do not see your provider in the list, it is not supported at this time but may be added in the future.
