DirecTV Inc. Thursday debuted Sleuth, NBC Universal Cable’s crime and mystery network, according to officials.
The network will be available to the direct-broadcast satellite provider’s more than 15 million subscribers as part of the “DirecTV Total Choice” programming package, on channel 308.
"You don't have to be a clever detective to figure out that this network will generate a huge following among our customers," DirecTV executive vice president of programming Dan Fawcett said in a prepared statement.
Previously, DirecTV and NBC U Cable reached a multiyear agreement that will give the DBS provider primetime on-demand rights to NBC U TV programs and pay-per-view, in addition to deals in place for the programmer’s other networks, including USA Network, Sci Fi Channel, CNBC and MSNBC.
