As much as we love escaping into the fictional world, sometimes, a little dose of reality is all that we need. Somehow, watching real people in wild situations takes entertainment to a whole new level. So, are you in a mood to watch totally unscripted reality shows? If yes, then head on to A&E on Spectrum right away and stay tuned to watch some amazing award-winning reality programs.

A Brief History of A&E TV Network

A&E is an American TV channel, which came into existence on February 1st, 1984. It is the flagship property of A&E Networks with a primary focus on non-fiction programs including documentaries, true crime, and reality shows.

Originally, A&E was founded as the Arts & Entertainment Network and was only used to broadcast fine arts and dramas. However, in 1995, the channel rebranded itself and after seven years, A&E emerged as a thought-provoking network that concentrated more on reality series than dramas and fine art programs. By the year 2017, A&E had completely phased out scripted shows by shifting its attention towards reality programs, a move that inspired many other channels. As of July 2015, A&E is available to almost 96 million households in the United States.

The network hosts some pretty amazing shows that surpassed millions of viewers. For instance, Flight 93, a docudrama that portrayed actual events of the plane crash that happened in Pennsylvania during the September 11 attacks, attracted 5.9 million viewers on its first telecast on 30th January 2006. Similarly, Ike: Countdown to D-Day; a World War 2 docudrama, gained 5.5 million viewers on A&E, which was another great success for the channel.
