A&E Launches Two Digital Nets


Anaheim, Calif. -- A&E Television Networks
last week launched two digital networks, The Biography Channel and History
Channel International
, on Tele-Communications Inc.'s Headend in the Sky
service, A&E said.

Both networks will broadcast 24 hours a day, and they will
integrate television programming with online content, original short-form features and
interactive interstitials.

The Biography Channel is a spinoff of A&E's nightly
primetime series, Biography, while History Channel International will extend
A&E's The History Channel into digital homes, focusing more on global history than on
U.S. history.
