AETN content is shared widely with the public on-air, online and on mobile devices after a program airs – that has not changed. AETN Passport goes one step further by offering extended access to additional content for members.
Initially, hundreds of hours of on-demand content will be available via AETN Passport along with tens of thousands of hours of content available to all. This library of content will continue to grow over time as more titles are added.
All broadcast content remains available to all viewers on air per our broadcast schedule and will remain online and on mobile for at least two weeks and, in some cases, longer. We believe the new arrangement allows for ample viewing of excellent content, albeit for a more limited time for some programs.
Streaming video from AETN – including video that this available to AETN donors – is only available within the United States.
