A&E is a Latin American subscription television channel of American origin, a regional variant of the original channel . Its programming focused on the broadcasting of biographies, documentaries, and series (especially dramas, police and mysteries), but later it was expanded to include reality television as well . It has a reach of 32 million homes in Latin America . [ 1 ]

It is owned by A + E Networks , has a partnership with Ole Communications , [ 2 ] and is currently distributed to the region by Ole Distribution , a company formed between Ole Communications and WarnerMedia . [ 3 ]


The channel, which originally focused on biographies , documentaries and drama series (especially crimes and mysteries), has expanded into other areas such as reality shows and music; the latter transmitting video clips; also it included the broadcast of musical events, broadcasting the Festival of Vine of the Sea of Chile , transmitted in 2004 and since 2009 live and live until 2014, [ 4 ] [ 5 ] as from 2015 happened to output from the channel HTV and TNT [ 6 ] [7 ] and begins airing the Independent Spirit Awards since 2017 .

The channel began in Latin America in 1996, through a partnership between A&E and HBO Latin America Group , with the purpose of the Mundo Ole documentary channel that had been broadcasting since 1997. Thanks to this association that occurred two years later, productions of the mark Biography , recognized one of the programs of the channel at the time, and received two Emmy Awards in 1999 and 2002. [ 8 ]

Over the years, the "A&E" brand was gaining more presence within the channel until it finally got rid of the word "World" in 2005 and had its current identity. Its headquarters for this region are located in Caracas , Venezuela and in Rio de Janeiro , Brazil .

The high definition signal was launched on August 2, 2012 for Latin America.

From subtitling to dubbing

As of the second half of 2008, A&E Latin America began broadcasting its programming dubbed into Latin American Spanish, leaving aside subtitles. Much of the programming was dubbed in Venezuela and Colombia at VC Medios studios, where they also dubbed SpongeBob in the same studio .

However, there was still a minimal amount of programs in the original language, some examples of them are The Beast and Numb3rs series .

Currently, the channel offers a secondary audio track in English with the audio of the programs in the original language.

On-screen programming guide with gross errors

The synopses of the programs leave a lot to be desired. For example, the summary of "The Prophecy" began with "An American businessman ...", when in fact it was about an American businessman. It is assumed that the people who write the guide should have a minimum educational level so as not to confuse "America" ​​(a continent) with "United States" (a country of the 35 that has America).
