At 8:46 a.m EDT, the A&E Television Networks - A&E, The History Channel, The Biography Channel and History International - will fade to black. For the following hour and 43 minutes, they will show a continuous scroll of the names of attack victims.

Similarly, the Scripps Networks - HGTV, The Food Network, The DIY Network and Fine Living - will stop regular programming at 8:30 a.m ET. For two hours, the networks will show "a series of images, words and music intended to inspire quiet reflection.''
