A+E Networks Goes Multiplatform with Time Warner Cable Pact

Deal calls for expanded TV Everywhere, VOD access to cable group's programming

Fear not, Time Warner Cable customers — there’s no danger of losing “Duck Dynasty” anytime soon.

A+E Networks has inked a long-term carriage renewal with TW Cable for its clutch of cablers including A&E, History, Lifetime, Bio and other offshoots. The pact calls for programming to be made available on TW Cable’s TV Everywhere-style authentication platforms for out-of-home viewing as well as VOD.

A+E Networks undoubtedly secured fee increases in exchange for all that multi platform access. The cable came to the table from a position of strength given the heat at A&E with “Duck Dynasty” and other shows, as well as History’s continued success. Financial details of the multi-year pact were not disclosed.

“We have had a great partnership with Time Warner Cable for many years and we are delighted that this new agreement will carry our partnership well into the future,” said David Zagin, president of distribution for A+E Networks. “We are thrilled that Time Warner Cable’s valued customers will be able to enjoy A+E Networks’ portfolio of brands across Time Warner Cable’s multiple platforms.”

Said TW Cable senior VP Jennifer Chun: “We’ve enjoyed a strong partnership with A+E for many years, and their programming is valuable to our customers. Now they will be able to enjoy even more of this content on multiple platforms.”
