While some episodes are unlocked and do not require a TV provider to watch, locked episodes on the A&E app and aetv.com can be viewed only after connecting to a TV provider that includes a TV package with A&E. If you do not have a supported TV provider and TV package, you will not be able to unlock all episodes of A&E in our apps and website at this time.
