Disney+ Removing A&E Content

In the latter part of the previous year, Disney+ introduced more than a dozen documentary and reality shows from the A&E networks to its global audience. This encompassed programs from History, Lifetime, and FYI, spanning a range of subjects and themes.

This week, a number of A&E shows have begun to be subtly taken off Disney+ in various countries globally, specifically in places like the UK, Canada, and Australia.

Some of the titles removed include:

  • Best in Bridal
  • Bride & Prejudice
  • Broke-Ass Bride
  • Celebrity Ghost Stories
  • Dance Moms
  • Evil Genius
  • Forged In Fire
  • Forged in Fire: Knife or Death
  • I Want a Baby
  • Love At First Flight
  • My Ghost Story
  • Pawn Stars
  • Storage Wars
  • Storage Wars: Unlocked

Note: The specific shows being taken down may vary from country to country.

Disney initiated a large-scale content removal from its streaming platform earlier this year as part of a strategic cost-cutting measure, aiming to save around $5 billion. This specifically involved writing off content valued at more than $1.8 billion.

In the United States, Disney co-owns the A&E networks, holding a 50% stake in partnership with Hearst Communications.

At present, it remains uncertain if or when these titles will be reintroduced to Disney+. So far, the United States hasn’t been affected by these removals, but the situation could potentially change in the future.
