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.
