A+E Networks programming such as Storage Wars (pictured), Project Runway and Pawn Stars is now available to U.S. subscribers of digital media player Apple TV.

Through VoD provider TV Everywhere, users of Apple TV – which allows people to watch shows from the Internet on their HD TV sets – can now download applications for A+E Networks-owned channels A&E, Lifetime and History.

A+E Networks subscribers will also have access to additional content, such as previous seasons of series from the three channels.

“With the response we’ve seen from our content on iOS devices and on iTunes, bringing A+E HD content to Apple TV is a natural evolution to satisfy our consumers’ demands and to provide our advertisers a new opportunity to partner with A+E Networks,” said Dan Suratt, exec VP of digital media and business development at A+E Networks, in a statement.
