The crime genre has gained much popularity and public interest in recent years with nail-biting shows such as Making A Murderer, Breaking Bad and Narcos just to name a few. To cater to the demand of viewers Sky has launched a channel totally dedicated to crime related TV shows and documentaries.

In an interview Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky, said:
“Sky Crime and Sky Comedy are fantastic additions to our entertainment portfolio, providing our customers with two new destinations for their favorite shows. Sky Crime, the home of premium true crime, will complement Sky Witness perfectly, while Sky Comedy is an exciting new proposition for Sky customers, offering them a daily dose of the best US comedy which will sit alongside our expanding slate of Sky Original comedy on Sky One.”
Further adding “By investing in the best of the US as well as doubling our investment in original drama and comedy, we are making Sky an unbeatable destination for the best range of premium TV.”
It is indeed an advance Halloween treat. A very gruesome though!
