TEGNA announced today that Justice Network, a channel featuring crime and investigative programming, will be rebranding to become True Crime Network on July 27.
True Crime Network will be a free, on-demand streaming service, geared toward true crime fans. The service will initially launch with hundreds of hours of on-demand content from the network’s library, along with original content.
“True Crime Network capitalizes on the rapid growth of several distinct segments of media and entertainment: over-the-air television viewing, on-demand and binge streaming, podcasting and the true crime genre,” said Brian Weiss, president and general manager, TEGNA’s entertainment multicast networks. “Our audience has spoken passionately about their desire to binge true crime mystery content. True Crime Network serves our highly-loyal, growing audience of true crime enthusiasts, while our streaming service will offer a free, easily-accessible and exciting experience for all true crime fans.”
