Can I buy programmes on DVD?

A range of HISTORY shows are now available to buy through Amazon. If you cannot find the programme you are looking for, it is not available at this time, but may be added to the catalogue later. Some programmes are also available for purchase from US company A&E Television Network’s online store. There are limitations with this service though, as the company does not ship outside of the US and Canada, the DVDs will be in US Region 1 format and will be the original versions with US voice-over.

I have a great idea for a programme!

The majority of our programming is purchased in completed form, and the programmes we do commission ourselves are produced in cooperation with established production companies. If you are a production company with a programme proposal, please email the pitch to feedback@aetn.co.uk If you are an individual with a great programme idea, you should search for and contact independent production companies known for making programmes related to your idea. Alternately, you could approach British arts funding bodies to apply for development and production funding.

I'm having trouble receiving HISTORY.

In the majority of cases, audio and visual problems will be the result of localised transmission faults or the adjustment of your Sky or Virgin box. If you experience persistent problems, we suggest you contact your service provider.
