At this point, there are more major TV media companies that are in business with Snapchat than are not. A+E Networks is the latest to partner with Snap Inc., announcing today that its in-house agency, 45th and Dean, will develop shows for Snapchat’s Discover platform. The content will involve talent and brands from its various networks and franchises along with some new concepts.
