A&E debuts iPad apps offering free TV episodes

A&E Networks has released separate free iPad apps for three of its networks — A&E, History, and Lifetime. All of the apps feature free access to episodes from the current seasons of selected shows, and the Lifetime app features selected movies, as well.


Comcast Xfinity TV customers will have access to additional content, including full previous TV seasons. The apps will support additional distributors early next year, and iPhone and iPod touch versions of the apps will launch in January. AirPlay support for the apps is coming soon.

Those look like some killer apps, but there are already too many network channel apps out there. If I had an app for every channel that I get from DISH, I would have over 250 apps and no room for anything else. That’s why I like the DISH Remote Access app; I can stream all of my live TV channels right to my phone, or I can watch something stored on my DVR at home, and I only need on app to do it. That leaves me with a ton of space for cool things like music, pictures, and non TV apps.
