Blaze is a British English language free-to-air television channel owned by A&E Networks UK, a joint venture between A&E Networks and Sky Group. This channel allows UK A&E to use its programming for the complete "lifecycle".

A+E Networks Italy launched its Blaze on Sky Italy on March 22, 2017.[1] In Spain and Portugal, a version of Blaze channel was launched by AMC Networks International in joint-venture with A&E Networks to replace the A&E channel on 18 April 2018,[2] but closed and replaced with AMC Break on 19 April 2022.[3]

Format and programming

The channels' programming is a best of A&E shows[4] Blaze was the first channel launched in the UK by A&E Networks that did not borrow its name from one of the company's U.S. channels. The abbreviation "A&E" is commonly used to mean "Accident and Emergency unit" in the UK, so the company decided not to use that brand for the channel.[5]

Having originally only aired imported and rerun programming, Blaze commissioned its first original programme, Flipping Bangers, in 2017.[6] It premiered on 6 April 2018 as a part of the Car Night programming block.[7] A second season was later commissioned.


Elena Anniballi was appointed director of Blaze in April 2017.[8] In February 2019, A&E Networks appointed Dan Korn as head of Blaze.[5]
