Investigation Discovery (abbreviated as ID) is a television channel available in several European nations. It competes in the same genre as Crime & Investigation Network which is also available in several European nations. The ID. channel features crime programming, including "missing persons and murder inquiries, cold cases and historical crime," as well as documentaries on forensic investigations. One such program is Deadly Women, an investigative series in which former FBI agent and profiler Candice DeLong looks at female killers throughout history.
Investigation Discovery became available on cable television in the United States in January, 2008.
This was followed by launches in Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro in May, 2009. On June 28, 2009, the channel replaced nTalk on the Polish platform N. On 15 July it replaced TVN Lingua on Cyfra+.
In August 2009, ID. came to the Baltic states when it launched on the Latvian Lattelecom platform. In September 2009 it was announced that the channel would be added to RCS/RDS's offerings.
On 4 July 2011, Investigation Discovery replaced Discovery Travel & Living in the Netherlands and Flanders.
