Does crime pay – or, more to the point, will you pay for an all-crime streamer?

A&E Networks has launched A&E Crime Central, a subscription streaming service dedicated to true-crime programming.

A&E Crime Central, which costs $4.99 a month with a seven-day free trial, sources content from A&E, History, Lifetime and LMN. The service purports to offer more than 900 ad-free videos from such series as Dog the Bounty Hunter, The First 48: Missing Persons, After the First 48, Beyond Scared Straight, Nightwatch and Cold Case Files Classic. It also includes the first four seasons of 60 Days (season five currently airs on A&E).

The streamer also has specials including OJ: Guilty in Vegas, Menendez Brothers: The Sins of the Children, Casey Anthony’s Parents Speak, and Life of a Gang Girl: The Untold Story.

A&E Crime Central is currently available as an Amazon Prime add-on channel and a premium subscription on The Roku Channel.  There are also plans to make it accessible via the Apple TV app.
