A+E NETWORKS(R) EXPANDS TV EVERYWHERE OFFERINGS WITH ANDROID APPS

A&E, HISTORY AND LIFETIME ANDROID APPS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD FOR FREE ON TUESDAY, JUNE 18

FREE VIDEO APPS GIVE VIEWERS ACCESS TO THE NETWORKS' COMPREHENSIVE LIBRARIES OF ORIGINAL CONTENT

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 18, 2013 - A+E Networks(TM) continues to expand its leadership position as one of the first to market TV Everywhere apps with the launch of Android(TM) apps today. A&E(R), HISTORY(R) and Lifetime(R) network apps are available on Android's latest operating systems for free from Google Play(TM).

Since the inaugural kick-off of apps in December with the iPad(R) and February with the iPhone(R), the network has seen over 5 million downloads of the watch apps to date, with those apps accounting for one third of all video viewing in April. The apps have garnered three times the visits per unique visitor compared to the companion online sites, helping propel A+E Networks to its best four months ever in network video views, and up 60 percent in year-over-year growth for the first four months of the year.

"With the addition of our new Android apps, A+E Networks strengthens our leadership position in the rollout of TV Everywhere," said Dan Suratt, Executive Vice President of Digital Media and Business Development, A+E Networks. "We are committed to making our top-rated original content available to our consumers where they want to view it, and to that end, we will be rolling out our apps on even more platforms in the coming months."

The apps enable users to watch full episodes, full movies and exclusive clips of their favorite A+E Networks programming, including Storage Wars(R) and Duck Dynasty(R) on A&E; Pawn Stars(R) and Swamp People(R) on HISTORY; and Army Wives(R) and Dance Moms(R) on Lifetime. Users who sign in to verify Xfinity TV from Comcast, DirecTV and other providers as authentication partners will have access to even more content, including full previous seasons of some of their favorite series.

The apps feature extensive video offerings. Users who start watching a video and have to step away can pause mid-stream and resume where they left off, thanks to Watchlist functionality. Users can also participate in social sharing where they can post to Twitter(R), Facebook(R) or emails with a direct link.

The free A&E, HISTORY and Lifetime apps are available for download on Google Play(TM).
