Crime+Investigation Grows Footprint in Poland


A+E Networks UK has expanded the distribution of Crime+Investigation in Poland, launching the channel on the Play Now service.

Play Now is available from Play, the largest mobile network operator in Poland. Several original commissions headline the channel’s launch schedule, including a new season of the documentary series Once Upon A Crime, in which seven best-selling Polish crime writers review true crime cases. Additionally, Journalist Michal Fajbusiewicz once again joins Crime+Investigation with a new series of interviews with popular Polish crime writers, and new episodes of the series Killer Women return featuring high-profile crime cases that shocked Poland.

Crime+Investigation on Play joins the previously available HISTORY2 and Lifetime in the Extra tier, and HISTORY is available in the Basic package.

The expansion of the distribution in Poland follows the successful summer launch of Crime+Investigation as the only dedicated true-crime brand in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Izabella Wiley, general manager at A+E Networks UK for Poland and CEE, said: “Crime+Investigation has a fiercely loyal and passionate fan base in Poland. We are thrilled to partner with Play to launch Crime+Investigation on their Play Now platform. With Play we are excited to bring more core viewers and new audiences to Crime+Investigation and some of the greatest investigations of our time”.

Karina Rompa, content manager at Play, said: “We’re delighted to have extended our relationship with A+E Networks and to launch Crime+Investigation to our channel lineup. Access to even more great content, including crime shows, is another step in our firm ambition to grow our TV offering.”
