Crime & Investigation to launch in Spain
21 Jan 11 -
A&E Television Networks (AETN) is launching the Crime & Investigation Network in Spain for the first time.
The channel will launch on February 1 2011 and will be operated by The History Channel Iberia, a joint venture between AETN and Chello Multicanal. The network will be carried on cable platform ONO and IPTV service Imagenio after the company inked carriage deals with both operators and will be fully localized in Spanish.
Series on the channel will include The First 48, Manhunters and Crime 360. "I am sure that Crime & Investigation Network will follow the same successful path obtained by The History Channel Iberia with Canal de Historia and Bio in Spain," said Diego Castrillo, general manager, The History Channel Iberia.
