Philo recently added Newsy and a channel called “Crime and Investigation” (Crime+Investigation) to the Philo Channel lineup. Considering Philo is currently the only source to watch Crime+Investigation, we wanted to go over what this channel is and how to watch it.
What is Crime+Investigation Network
A&E Networks own the Crime+Investigation channel and uses the network to re-run crime dramas like The First 48, 60 Days In, American Justice, and Court Cam. The network focuses on providing the viewer with a behind-the-scenes look at criminal investigations and a deeper look and some of life’s most infamous criminals.
How To Watch Crime+Investigation Network
Crime+Investigation is available through Philo, a live TV streaming service that offers many other top TV networks typically found on cable TV for just $25 per month.
You can watch Crime+Investigation and other channels through Philo on up to three devices simultaneously. The service even includes a cloud DVR. Philo is currently supported on Mac and PC on a web browser, Apple iPhone and iPad (running iOS 9 or newer), Android phones and tablets (running 5.0 or newer), Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku. You can also stream Philo to your TV with Chromecast.
Philo offers a 1-week free trial to try the service. However, if you cancel before the trial expires, you won’t be billed. For more details on the streaming service, please check out our review of Philo.
Other A&E True Crime Options
Many, but not all, of the shows available on Crime+Investigation are also available for free to Amazon Prime subscribers. In addition, A&E recently added a stand-alone true crime app, A&E Crime Central. This channel focuses on the best of A&E’s true crime content, including series and documentaries, and features over 1,500 commercial-free videos. A&E Crime Central is $4.99 a month after a 7-day free trial, and is currently available as a channel add-on on Amazon Prime Video, and an app for iOS, Roku, and Google Chromecast.
