In May 1995, the 1987 logo was amended and modified, and most noticeably, the ampersand was made over. The channel's name also officially changed to the A&E Network, to reflect its declining focus on arts and entertainment.


A&E 2008.svg

On May 26, 2008, in conjunction with the premiere of the original film The Andromeda Strain, A&E rebranded with a new logo and slogan, Real Life. Drama., representing its shift from an arts-focused network to a more contemporary network focused on scripted programming. Both the logo and the on-air graphics package were designed by Loyalkaspar.
