MUMBAI:TV viewers in the US will
be happy for Dish Network and A+E
Networks have decided to continue
with their content sharing deal.The
duo has agreed to terms for a
multi-year contract renewal. With this, Dish
customers will have access to A+E Networks’
high-quality content and award-winning
programming from its entire portfolio.
This innovative agreement includes OTT multi-
stream rights for live and Video-on-Demand
(VOD) content. It also expands Dish customers’
access to programming on the satellite service
through increased distribution of H2 and FYI
in the America’s Top 200 programming
package, as well as authenticated live and VOD

The renewal applies to the entire suite of A+E
Networks’ channels, among the top brands in
the media landscape, including: A&E, Lifetime,
History, LMN, FYI, H2, History en Español,

“I am pleased to call A+E Networks an

statement. “Together we are enhancing the
customer experience with fresh, dynamic
programming that Dish customers will be able

The new OTT rights allow access to A+E

across their multiple platforms. We continue
to grow and make significant investments in
