Launching on Tuesday 22nd March, True Crime will be the home to Deadly Women, Crime 360, The Devil You Know and The 9/11 Faker plus familiar favourites such as Caught on Camera, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Paternity Court.
The channel will be available on Freeview 60, Sky 185 and Freesat 143 and will sit alongside the broadcaster’s other Freeview channels, True Entertainment and True Movies.
