We were founded in 1984, with two cable channels when cable was far from a sure bet. Now we’re a global entertainment media company with six original brands: A&E®, HISTORY®, Lifetime®, LMN®, FYITM and VICELANDSM. We reach 330 million people worldwide, can be found in eight out of 10 American homes and have 500 million digital users. The best part? We did it our way.
Yes, we’re global. Yes, our shows are the topic of conversation everywhere. Yes, we’ve made a habit out of bringing the next big thing to TV. But we haven’t forgotten what got us here. Without all of our people – our creative teams, producers and employees – we wouldn’t be where we are today. We have never lost our entrepreneurial spirit, that scrappiness we relied on when we were just starting out. We put people, programming and partnerships at the center of everything we do, because these are the keys to our success.

We are in the business of telling stories. They may be stories about real people or made-up people, but our true talent is imagining, finding, cultivating and bringing to life the most entertaining parts of the human experience. And that’s not just corporate gobbledygook. We are fully human-centered. We’re proud of the genres we’ve created and the way we’ve reinvented television, but we also put our money where our mouth is when it comes to education and outreach programs. We empower our people because we know they’re the fuel that drives all we do, and they’re driven to entertain and empower our audience.
