Crime & Investigation Network will launch in the Netherlands July 4 with cable operator Ziggo, marking the debut of the channel in the Benelux.
The launch will be available to 2.1 million Ziggo subscribers as “Channel of the Month,” and will also include a website. The channel is programmed and operated in the Netherlands by AETN UK, a joint venture of A+E Networks and BSkyB.
“We are delighted that Crime & Investigation Network is launching in the Netherlands,” says Tom Davidson, managing director for AETN UK. “The launch on Ziggo is the first for Crime & Investigation Network in the Benelux region, but follows many successful launches by AETN UK in Poland, Serbia, Bulgaria and Croatia. There is significant consumer appetite for investigative programming, so we have high hopes fort his channel which is already a high performer in the U.K. and Central and Eastern Europe.”
