A&E sucks.

A&E well and truly sucks.

I saw a DVD set that was an A&E documentary about Napoleon at the public library. I looked it over and sure enough, no CC's or subtitles.

This is typical of A&E. I can't think of a single DVD or video A&E put out that was ever CC'd or subtitled. Not one.

So if you wanted to watch any of their programs with CC's or subtitles, you have to watch it on their TV channel or you're just out of luck.

I often envision A&E headquarters being populated by lizards in suits.

I loved option three! Besides, I usually only would watch when it was on tv. I don't normally buy DVD's.

is this the channel that shows the Paranormal State series? If so, then yes I have an issue with them not adding CC or subtitles to their DVDs. I have a few seasons of Paranormal State on DVDs, but nada. Kind of irritating really. And yet I kept buying the new seasons in hope they would have added something! I quit buying them after maybe the 5th season set.

A&E has a terrible track record when it comes to their DVD releases. They are rarely captioned.
