Fans of such shows as "Swamp People," "Storage Wars," and "Monster In-Laws" can now catch full episodes for free via their iPads.
Viewers will be able to catch all episodes from the current seasons of various shows, as well as some episodes from previous seasons. Subscribers to Comcast's Xfinity TV will have access to all episodes from previous seasons.
You can browse among all shows or search for specific ones. You can also maintain a watchlist, which lets you queue up episodes of your favorite series or resume watching a previous video from where you left off.
A&E plans to release similar apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch in January and for Android devices sometime in the first quarter of 2013.
