Spokane has a new TV channel, well sort of. In the middle of January KREM's digital channel 2.2 made the switch to a become part of a newly formed TV network called The Justice Network.
The network is a national channel that launched at the same time as the Spokane affiliate. The network has a distribution deal with Garnett Broadcasting, the owner of KREM and KSKN. This deal has put the channel on air in about 1/3 of US TV markets already.
The Justice Network focuses on real crime TV shows, and some reality shows about crime. Included in the channel's line up are shows like: Alaska State Troopers , Body of Evidence , Masterminds , Missing Persons Unit and many more.
In addition to the crime TV shows, The Justice Network will dedicate a portion of their broadcast time to PSA's on missing person, wanted criminals,etc...
As of now the Spokane affiliate channel appears to have little to no local programming, however we will keep an eye out should this change. The Justice Network is available throughout the local area over the air on 2.2 or on Comcast cable in Spokane and Time Warner Cable in Coeur d' Alene / Post Falls.
