Frndly TV announced today a deal to add A+E’s portfolio of channels to the affordable streaming service. Frndly TV subscribers will have access to A+E, The History Channel, and Lifetime on November 18.
“The addition of the seven A+E Networks’ channels is a seminal event in Frndly TV’s growth,” said McKenna. “Our customers are both loyal and vocal — and they have asked us about adding the great A+E Networks’ content. Working with the good folks at A+E, we are now able to add outstanding quality to our programming lineup with some of the most desired and loved channels in all TV.”
David Zagin, President of Distribution for A&E said “We are excited to partner with Frndly TV and to make our award-winning content available to their devoted subscriber base. Launching on November 18 means Frndly TV customers can enjoy the new slate of holiday movies premiering on Lifetime’s It’s A Wonderful Lifetime, as well as look forward to the highly anticipated premieres of Janet — the fascinating untold story of Janet Jackson — and Abraham Lincoln, on The HISTORY Channel in early 2022.”
With the addition of the new slate of channels, the price of Frndly TV will be going up for the first time since the service launched, from $5.99/month to $6.99/month, after a 7 day free trial.
