Law&Crime Network Launches On Verizon FiOS
Law&Crime, a 24/7 true crime and live trial network, just launched on one of the largest cable providers in the United States — it’s now available on Verizon FiOS’s most popular channel packages nationwide.
Law&Crime, which is already available on most major OTT platforms including Sling, fuboTV, Philo, Vidgo, Comcast Xfinity, XUMO and TV Plus, as well as select basic cable providers in the U.S. and the Caribbean, said it plans to create and acquire more original programming as part of both its daily lineup and unscripted series portfolio.
Law&Crime’s current original program lineup beyond the live trials includes The Daily Debrief and Brian Ross Investigates, hosted by former ABC Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross.
The network said it will continue producing original documentary-style programs on high profile trials for other cable networks through its production arm, Law&Crime Productions, and will now be adding trial documentaries to its own primetime lineup.
Most recently, the network featured national coverage of the Harvey Weinstein trial and said it provided live coverage with daily analysis of the high-profile murder trial of wealthy real estate scion Robert Durst.
“The evolution and expansion of Law&Crime has exceeded my wildest expectations and hopes” said Law&Crime Founder/CEO Dan Abrams. “Our growth from digital to OTT to cable is a tribute to the viewer appetite for the true crime genre but the key for us has been in becoming the dominant player in the live trial space. Verizon Fios and Cincinatti Bell are two key launches for the network in the cable space with many more to come.”
In April, Law&Crime said it generated more than 80 million cross-platform minutes viewed and an average watch time of 30 minutes.
