Apple iPhone owners can now stream full episodes of popular A&E shows.

The network updated its iOS application this week, allowing iPhone owners to watch everything from "Duck Dynasty" to "Storage Wars" to "The First 48." A&E's other networks, Lifetime and The History Channel, have also received updates supporting the iPhone.

A&E initially launched its app in December for the iPad . The company allows viewers to watch full episodes of the current season of shows for free. As with the iPad application, only Comcast customers will have access to episodes from previous seasons.

For now, AirPlay support is not available in A&E's line of applications. However, the company noted in its App Store description that the feature is "coming soon."
