Be Original


A&E was founded in 1984, with two cable channels when cable was far from a sure bet. Now they’re a global entertainment media company with six original brands: A&E®, HISTORY®, Lifetime®, LMN®, FYITM and VICELANDSM.  They reach 330 million people worldwide, can be found in eight out of 10 American homes and have 500 million digital users. The best part? They did it their way.

They are in the business of telling stories. They may be stories about real people or made-up people, but their true talent is imagining, finding, cultivating and bringing to life the most entertaining parts of the human experience.  And that’s not just corporate gobbledygook. They are fully human-centered. They’re proud of the genres we’ve created and the way they’ve reinvented television, but they also put their money where their mouth is when it comes to education and outreach programs. They empower people because they know they’re the fuel that drives all they do, and they’re driven to entertain and empower their audience.
