In the German-speaking world, the non-functional digital transmitter is operated in a joint venture between NBC Universal Global Networks Deutschland GmbH and A+E Networks.[1]

A&E radiates reallife documentary around extraordinary protagonists. Crime, Deals, Family and Paranormal are the four core genres of the station.[2] The program is compiled entirely by A+E Networks Germany and consists of synchronized productions of the American counterpart, broadcasts of the German program partner ZDF and other suppliers.
