A&E Networks is regularly finding ways to make its programming more widely available, particularly by having on-demand options through TV providers and its own apps. To help boost these efforts, the company's now bringing live streaming into the fold, at least with a couple of properties. As of today, viewers can now watch a real-time feed of A&E and History, via each channel's website and their applications on iOS -- no word on when, or if, the feature will head to Android. Naturally, you'll need a cable subscription to enjoy this, as is often the case for most services that use the internet to broadcast entertainment content.

Of course, TV Everywhere offerings like Time Warner Cable's mobile apps already made live streaming A&E and History possible, so long as you've had access to the right channel package. By doing this, however, A&E Networks is essentially cutting out the middle man and, in the process, giving you another option for times when you might need it. A&E Networks Senior VP of Digital Media, Evan Silverman, told Variety that "this is just another stage in our evolution of TV Everywhere."
