Frndly TV Enters Agreement with A+E Networks


Live-TV provider Frndly TV has signed a multiyear distribution agreement that brings A+E Networks’ portfolio of brands to its subscribers.

Starting on November 18, Frndly TV subscribers will have access to A&E, The HISTORY Channel, Lifetime, Lifetime Movie Network, FYI, Military HISTORY, ViceTV and VOD programming.

“The addition of the seven A+E Networks channels is a seminal event in Frndly TV’s growth,” said Michael McKenna, chief programming officer of Frndly TV. “Our customers are both loyal and vocal—and they have asked us about adding the great A+E Networks’ content. Working with the good folks at A+E, we are now able to add outstanding quality to our programming lineup with some of the most desired and loved channels in all TV.”

David Zagin, president of distribution for A+E Networks, added, “We are excited to partner with Frndly TV and to make our award-winning content available to their devoted subscriber base. Launching on November 18 means Frndly TV customers can enjoy the new slate of holiday movies premiering on Lifetime’s It’s A Wonderful Lifetime, as well as look forward to the highly anticipated premieres of Janet, the fascinating untold story of Janet Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln on The HISTORY Channel in early 2022.”
