Today Sling TV’s free ad-supported streaming service Freestream announced an expanded partnership with Cineverse. This deal will bring the new Crime Hunters channels to Sling TV Freestream.

Crime Hunters joins other Cineverse channels, including Midnight Pulp, AsianCrush, Screambox TV, The Bob Ross Channel, RetroCrush, Comedy Dynamics, Real Madrid TV, So…Real, Dove Channel, and Docurama, among others.
The owned-and-operated streaming channel is dedicated to true crime, mystery, conspiracy, and paranormal programming from this world and beyond while offering a programming lineup ranging from murder mysteries, cold cases and ghostly secrets to alien invasions. Launched in April 2022, Crime Hunters features content such as The New Detectives, The FBI Files, and Interview with a Murderer. The channel is also available on the Company’s flagship streaming service – Cineverse.
“The appetite for true crime and paranormal programs is incredibly strong,” said Cineverse Networks Executive Vice President and General Manager David Chu. “This new partnership with Sling Freestream is an opportunity to expand the total audience of our owned-and-operated channels as we continue to execute on our strategy of expanding the reach of our portfolio of FAST channels.”
“We’re delighted to add more mystery content to Sling Freestream with the Crime Hunters channel,” said Gary Schanman, group president, SLING TV. “Sling Freestream has a robust lineup of more than 370 channels that, in addition to mystery shows, feature sports, entertainment and news, all for free with no credit card or account required.”
Sling Freestream is available through the Sling app on Amazon, Roku, Comcast, LG, Samsung, Xbox and Vizio devices, and continues to roll out across other major devices, providing customers a no-barrier entry point to high-quality programming without any payment or credit card required. Sling TV says it will expand support for Sling Freestream to more devices in the future.
