A+E teams Up with Clearleap on VOD

Clearleap has wrapped up a deal to power A+E Networks’ on-demand video distribution across the programmer’s brands and networks, including A&E, History, Lifetime, FYI, LMS and H2.

The partnership, which launched this month, is the first agreement reached between the two companies, and included the opportunity for Clearleap to help provision multiplatform services.

“The logistics of publishing on-demand content have become dramatically complex,” said Richard Shirley, A+E Networks’ vice president of distribution business development. “At A+E, we’re always looking to leverage technologies that will help us manage complexities and ensure the content viewers are looking for is available when they want it.”

The partnership enables rapid distribution of content across the United States and Canada to set-top boxes via Clearleap’s IP distribution network.

“A+E Networks has truly set the standard for producing premium, engaging programs across major branded channels, while simultaneously capitalizing on evolving viewer preferences,” said Braxton Jarratt, CEO of Clearleap. “With this partnership, we have the opportunity to bolster A+E Networks’ extensive video offerings while working alongside one of the largest, most respected and premium brands in the pay-TV industry.”

Other customers for Atlanta-based Clearleap include HBO, BBC America, Sony Movie Channel, Scripps Networks Interactive, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon.
