A+E Networks’ Crime & Investigation channel has launched in the Middle East on OSN’s platform.
The channel is programmed and operated in the Middle East by A+E Networks UK, a joint venture between A+E Networks and BSkyB. It is available in OSN’s Platinum Extra HD and Premier Plus HD packages, airing series including The FBI Files, The First 48 and Steven Seagal: Lawman.
The launch in the Middle East marks the third new territory launch for Crime & Investigation Network this year. The channel launched in Spain in January and in the Benelux in June.
Tom Davidson, managing director of A+E Networks UK, said: “We are delighted to enhance our portfolio offering with OSN. Crime & Investigation Network has joined History on the platform and is now available for the first time to subscribers in the Middle East. Extending our distribution for this channel is a priority for our business and OSN is an ideal partner given their strong emphasis on delivering quality content to their subscribers in the region.”
