A&E networks

Before I dropped cable in 2011, I didn't watch A&E all that much. I used to some years back, when they carried Biography (Peter Graves and Jack Perkins) and similar programming. But, I got away from that as they moved the shows I watched to other A&E owned networks.

It's a popular network, though, with a lot of programs that a lot of people like to watch. And, of course, it's available on all the major live streaming services.

Or it was.

Turns out that when I used the Suppose.TV online tool, it doesn't show up on Fubo TV. It used to be there, but now it's not. In fact, it's not just A&E, but their six major channels to include History and Lifetime. Lifetime Movie, FYI, and Vice were the other A&E Networks channels dropped by Fubo TV.

That was a bit of a surprise to me. Fubo TV isn't as popular as YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, or Sling TV, but it's traditionally been a good option for those wanting a live streaming service. But now, it has an A&E Networks size gaping hole in its lineup.

If A&E is in your must-watch lists of channels, you still have plenty of other options. You can also find A&E Networks channels on other services:

  • Philo $25
  • Sling TV $35
  • Vidgo $55
  • Hulu + Live TV $65
  • AT&T TV $75

So, if you are a fan of A&E, you still have options. But, unfortunately, Fubo is no longer an option. That means Fubo and YouTube TV both do not carry those channels. I'm curious as to what might be going on. It doesn't impact my Streaming Life, but it might impact yours, so it's important.
