You’ve probably heard about the plan DISH is developing to roll out an Internet-based TV service or “over the top” TV service, as the Satellite TV company has recently labeled it. But ever since DISH and Walt Disney Co. made an agreement in March of this year, a big question has remained – what TV channels would this service stream?

After a few fairly silent months, DISH finally announced today that an agreement has been reached with A&E Networks. This agreement gives DISH the rights to stream channels such as A&E, Lifetime and The History Channel which will be in addition to the channels included in the Disney deal; ABC, ESPN, and more. DISH has said the service would include 20 to 30 channels so there is still plenty of room for other agreements to be made with other popular networks.

DISH plans on launching the Internet-based TV service which targets adults aged 18 to 35 who are less likely to subscribe to traditional TV services later this year. An initial price range DISH has said to target is between $20 and $30 per month.
