California-headquartered producer-distributor Sony Pictures Television (SPT) is slated to roll out a dedicated crime channel in the UK for its digital TV platform Freeview.
The channel will also air the series Caught On Camera, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Paternity Court.
True Crime is the latest addition to the True channel portfolio, and joins True Entertainment and True Entertainment +1, True Movies 1, True Movies 2 and True Drama.
SPT’s global networks portfolio includes 150 channel feeds available across 178 countries, and reaching more than 1.3 billion cumulative households worldwide. True Crime will be available on Freeview channel 60, Sky channel 185 and Freesat channel 143.
“True Crime will be a dedicated crime channel, where viewers who are fascinated by true life stories will be able to have everything in one place,” said Kate Marsh, executive VP of Western Europe for International Networks at SPT, in a statement. “The channel further builds on the success of our Freeview channel portfolio and marks our commitment to the UK television market.”
