Three new TV streaming applications have very recently been unleashed to Android devices running version 4.0 and above from A&E, the History Channel, and Lifetime.  These apps give viewers access to on demand content from the networks (no live TV here, sadly.)  The applications themselves are free, and they all contain some streaming content for free.  If you are a subscriber to a supported cable provider, you are able to unlock additional content.  Currently. all three applications list specific support for Comcast and DirecTV customers among "other cable subscribers", and they say that support for more providers is on the way.

 

I poked around in all three applications and the experience seems nice.  You're bombarded with a simplistic and smooth view of some Featured Content that you can scroll through, and a tap on the top left hand corner button gives you a menu allowing you to actually find what you're looking for and access the settings of the application.  The video playing seemed to be of decent quality, and loading times were acceptable.  I am not a cable subscriber, so I am unable to test the premium content sections of the application.

 

Anyone trying these out?  Do you get the paid content through your cable provider?  Let us know below!

I like watching direct TV too. However, I want to try mobile version . Why don't you talk more about these channels? If I know what they have, I could try sometime.
