A&E, Lifetime and History come to Windows Phone

AE History Lifetime

It was just a few days ago that we learned A&E, Lifetime and History had made their television content available in apps for Windows 8.1. Not to be left, those apps are also now available for users on Windows Phone. Grab the download links below to catch your favorite shows like Pawn Stars, Duck Dynasty and others!

Just the like the Windows 8.1 apps, you can do the following on Windows Phone:

  • Watch full episodes and clips of your favorite series
  • Create a customized Watchlist of your favorite shows.
  • See exclusive clips and deleted scenes from shows, never before shown on television.

AE History Lifetime

The apps are listed as Universal Windows apps, which is an awesome trend we've been seeing more of since Build 2014.

Anyone looking forward to watching shows from these television channels on your Windows Phone? Sound off below with your favorite program.

Nice! I don't care for any of these services. But the more official stuff the better.

psychotron says:

Same. If I had to choose channels it wouldn't be any of these, but always good to see official apps. The more the merrier.

CJ Thunder says:

Seems many companies were just waiting for this sort of program to make and release their apps.

btbam91 says:

Agreed! It's good stuff!

Esquibar says:

Doesn't allow me to use my Comcast login

rodneyej says:

Why so many official apps all of the sudden??

k0de says:

Must be the increase on market shares. Like a Website show me the traffic. And you can display our product. This is awesome.

xankazo says:

I've been wondering the same. :)

Shane says:

Once the My Little Pony app was released, I knew WP was "there". Cash, I'm sure there was some behind the scenes "pushing" to get these apps done.

k0de says:

Agree. Something mystical is happening at WP with in the last two weeks. Plenty of official apps. Excellent,

rodneyej says:

That's what I was thinking.. I bet these apps are the result of MS's begging... Lol!

Windows 8.1 format, how many devices are out there for it and how much its growing and is the future for windows (largest computer OS in the world) and how easy it is to make your app for one platform then make it for the other. So if they make a windows 8.1 app it is a lot more likely that a WP app will be made the it use to and it has to do with stream lining the process of the development tools and making the platforms similar.

rodneyej says:

Or, MS went strait to the developers, and pitched the idea of a universal app to them, then offered to fund the app development.

Shane says:

No Comcast, no Directv. Boo hiss.

Appleby55 says:

DirecTv, Dish, all off those. Even web wrapper apps have some usefullness

I actually got excited about the history channel app. However excitement all gone no directv or twc.

Munkeyphyst says:

No ATT u-verse either...

Appleby55 says:

Would really like to see official apps for FedEx, USPS, UPS, to manage accounts, shipping times and deliveries. Also would like to see official team sports apps.

biodeena says:

Seems... Cool.... :P

armyvet66629 says:

Fuck yes, I can watch duck dynasty on break at work

I see what you did there

kidjenius says:

I'm surprised they're not just web wrappers

Cormango says:

None of these apps work for me. They start to load and then give me some network error.

Maglor1981 says:

History is shown as title not retrieved and crashes the wpc app when selected...

kirklyt says:

I agree. I had to go to technet (source) to download History.

DJCBS says:

Sam, fix the History Channel link as it's showing Title not found in the WPCentral app and making it crash...(Jay can later thank you for the emails...lol)

Peg Leg says:

I watched a small tid bit of some hillbillies cussing at each other and the world on the Great Lakes. So, at least those of us who have cut the cord can watch some ....crap like I described.

Lewis Wilson says:

Windows Phone is really gaining some serious momentum! Sheesh.

pankaj981 says:

The biggest app missing at the moment is WatchESPN :/

Useless in UK. Forces you to sign in to TV provider, but no UK providers. Disappointed

Ordeith says:

Do these apps work over Miracast?

wozburger says:

History app link seems broken. Also, I can't find the official history app by searching the app store.

gllygd says:

WTF is up with the iOS like WIndows tiles; lazy fcuks. Windows phones users need to stop accepting this shit.

Rainmarie says:

Thanks for this. My family and I are overjoyed!

Your move Cartoon network

KMF79 says:

Hell yeah! And Comedy Central! You can't touch the trim!

XeroJC2000 says:

Now all we need is WATCH ESPN and HBO GO and I'm all set

KMF79 says:

I second both of those as well. I'd also take Showtime Anytime.

addicusbrown says:

Love getting more apps. Really need the WatchESPN app and have the ESPN Radio all get fixed!

GusterBuster says:

Bates Motel!!!! :)

wpn00b says:

Do I have to have these channels with my provider? Because I do not feel like subscribing to anything but Netflix and Hulu plus at this point.

KMF79 says:

Yes. They verify it by having you use your account login from your provides website to give access to full episodes.

xoxoGeorges says:

The Universal Apps concept was the best thing that happened to WP and Windows

In Limbo says:

I wonder if the Lifetime live tile features the most recent wife-beatings . . .
