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.
We support sign ins with hundreds of local cable and streaming TV providers, which will allow you to unlock episodes. You can see a full list of providers when you click 'sign in' on any locked video.
While recent premieres from the A&E TV channel will not appear right away in A&E Crime Central, we also suggest you check out A&E Crime Central for commercial-free A&E videos anytime, anywhere for only $4.99 per month: aecrimecentral.com.
