Monetizing content for more than 40 leading television programmers, Delivery Agent operates and manages the online stores for more than 350 television shows and has secured the rights to market and sell more than one million products connected to television content, including A+E Network’s shows. With this HISTORY t-commerce initiative, Verizon, Delivery Agent and A+E Networks are beginning the migration of the network’s online shopping experiences to include the television.
