Blaze was launched as a free-to-air channel from A&E Networks UK (itself a joint venture between the US-based A&E Networks and Sky) in September 2016. The majority of the channel's output is made up of US-based reality shows from the parent A&E company, such as Pawn Stars and Storage Wars. Continuity on the station from launch was a little unusual in its use of pre-recorded double-headed presentation to try and create more of a 'banter' style, although this was later dropped in favour of a more traditional announcing style.

One of several more generic idents for Blaze from the 2016-2018 era, based more around graphical elements rather than a particular show. Here an alligator crawls past the Blaze logo set against a solid coloured background. With the double-headed continuity reading out some exciting facts about alligators too.
