Crime & Investigation Network (Europe) (branded as Crime+Investigation) is a pan-European television channel broadcasting programmes related to crime, investigation and mystery programming. It is owned and operated by A+E Networks and British Sky Broadcasting. AMC Networks International DMC is responsible for the signal distribution across mainland Europe and the subsidiaries of AMC Networks International are the distribution representatives across Europe. In Spain, it is named Crimen + Investigación and in Portugal, it is named Crime + Investigation and it is operated by The History Channel Iberia. The Portuguese version is available in Portugal and also airs in Portuguese-speaking African countries (Angola, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and São Tomé and Príncipe).

Its programming is mainly in English and locally subtitled or dubbed. It is available through numerous satellite, cable, terrestrial and IPTV distributors across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In some countries the advertisement and the announcements between programmes are localised.

A high definition version launched on Sky on 5 November 2008. Crime+Investigation HD originally operated on a separate schedule to the standard definition channel and timeshared with Bio. HD. On 3 July 2012, Bio. HD closed to allow Crime + Investigation HD to broadcast 24 hours a day, simulcasting the standard definition channel.

A one-hour timeshift channel named CI +1 launched on Sky UK on 2 March 2009. Since rebranding in January 2017 this has been named Crime+Investigation+1 and is on sky channel 554.
