Four channels from the A&E network will be available to TalkTalk TV subscribers from
August 28th. Customers signing up for the Entertainment TV Boost
will soon have access to the History and Lifetime channels, while
those signing up for the Entertainment Extra Boost will also
receive access to H2 plus Crime + Investigation.
The channels will be the first place to catch a number of
new shows. These include the second series of The Witches of East
End on Lifetime, a new series of Pawn Stars UK on History and a new
series of Crimes That Shook Britain on Crime + Investigation.
Content from the channels will also be available via TalkTalk's
catch-up TV service, with an on demand library of box sets expected
to arrive later in 2014.
As with all TalkTalk's Boosts, there is
no ongoing subscription. Simply choose that boosts that contains
your preferred channels, and you'll be given a simple monthly
rolling contract that can be cancelled at any time. Those without a
subscription will still be able to try out the new channels, as
TalkTalk will be streaming them free in an open weekend over the
30th and 31st August.
