Dish Adds A&E's Crime & Investigation HD

Dish Network announced it has added A&E Television Networks' Crime & Investigation HD to its premium PlatinumHD package, which is priced at an additional $10 monthly.

Crime & Investigation HD, on Dish channel 387, is part of PlatinumHD, available as an add-on to any TurboHD or Classic programming package with HD for $10 per month.

The HD network debuted last fall with DirecTV. In the U.S., AETN's standard-def Crime & Investigation Network is carried on Verizon's FiOS TV and AT&T's U-verse TV.

"With the addition of Crime & Investigation HD, we continue our commitment to enhance our HD offerings while remaining the value leader in pay-TV - offering the lowest all-digital price nationwide," Dish senior vice president of programming Dave Shull said, in a statement.

Crime & Investigation HD offers nonfiction series combined with off-net series, "opening the doors to police departments, crime labs, and prisons to expose the inner workings of the American justice system," according to AETN.
