After the success Discovery Network had, it launched another channel in 1996 named Investigation Discovery (ID) that solely focuses on crime events. There are a number of mystery novels out there, given how much we crave a good puzzle, so it makes sense that this genre would get its own channel. What's interesting though is that the content aired on Investigation Discovery is based on true events. While that may seem scary to some, at the same time this makes it fascinating. The documentary-style shows feature homicides and attempted homicides, all in HD for you to enjoy!

It is certain to have you on edge trying to figure out who the guilty party is as you go through different cases. You'll see various violent crimes like stalking, domestic violence, kidnapping, arson, sexual assault, mysterious disappearances, and more. So, if you are into the thrill of it all and love all things crime-related, you are sure to ask for this channel when you subscribe to cable services, and if it's a Spectrum TV subscription you are going for, you won't be disappointed.

Why Investigation Discovery Is So Popular?

Before we get into all that Spectrum has to offer in regards to Investigation Discovery, let us take a look at what it is that makes this channel so popular among people.

When Investigation Discovery was first launched, it was not focused on crimes. In fact, its content focused on ancient history. In 2002, when The New York Times purchased a stake in the channel, the focus shifted to current events, and it was re-launched as Times Discovery. It was not till 2008 though that it became the channel we know today, a 24/7 True Crime Network.

This idea to change directions was partly inspired by the success of CSI and Law and Order. These shows were doing well with people, so it made sense to cash in on it. What's more, it would cost less to create than a typical scripted drama. The plan worked, and the channel became an instant success. Since then, it has continued to provide quality content on crime.

Which Spectrum Plans Offer Investigation Discovery?

Investigation Discovery is a family-friendly channel that educates you and entertains you at the same time, which is part of the reason it is so popular. People of all ages can enjoy their content. Perhaps not little kids as it does feature some objectionable content in that regard, but given that mystery and curiosity are its main focus, anybody with an inquisitive mind will find it exhilarating.

If you wish to watch Investigation Discovery on Spectrum, consider yourself lucky. All Spectrum TV plans and packages including Spectrum TV Select Signature, TV Select Plus, and Mi Plan Latino include the channel in their lineup. 

Now the only hurdle you might face is figuring out which channel number it is aired on. So, without further ado, let us get to it.

What channel is ID on Spectrum?

The tricky thing with finding the channel number for any channel on Spectrum is that it varies from area to area. Your friend may be able to watch Investigation Discovery on channel 105, but if they are based in a different state or even a different city, chances are that the channel number that works for them, won't work for you. So, what do you do?

With the guide, you will be able to find Investigation Discovery channel number in your area, while also discovering other hidden TV gems.

What Can You Watch on Investigation Discovery?

You think that with so many crimes shows, the content would soon become repetitive and boring. However, that is not the case. The show may be on air for years, but each new episode manages to reel in viewers, keeping them in suspense, on edge over what happens next. Here are some of the most loved shows you can watch.

On the Case with Paula Zahn

Hosted by an award-winning journalist, Paula Zahn, the show explores the cases in-depth, tracing how the events unfold. The program also includes interviews with the people close to the cases to understand it all better along with expert analysis.

See No Evil

For all the notoriety surrounding the surveillance grid formed by CCTV cameras, it has more than proven itself to be worth it. Every second million of Americans are caught on tape going about their daily lives and while most are honest citizens wishing no harm onto others, there are some guilty of heinous crimes.

This true-crime TV show, See No Evil, explores how real crimes are solved using footage acquired from these CCTV cameras. Cases that would otherwise remain a mystery, are being solved thanks to the surveillance cameras. This groundbreaking series delves into how dangerous killers are put behind bars to ensure the safety of everyone using a mix of real footage and recreations along with testimonies of the witnesses, families, and police.

Fatal Vows

This series is one of a kind. It looks into cases where relationships turn sour and marriages turn deadly. Presented by the duo, Stacy Kaiser, a licensed psychotherapist and expert on relationships, and Brian Russell, a forensic and clinical psychologist as well as an attorney, you know the show is well researched with great narration.

In each episode, a new case is discussed, so you won't has anything to catch up to. You can start watching it in the middle if you prefer. What is more, with so many different cases being discussed, no matter how much you watch you won't find yourself getting bored.

It is worth noting that the show returned to the screen after a two-year hiatus in February 2020 for the seventh season, which means you can watch the latest episodes. However, the network has announced against renewing the series, so there's no future installment for you to wait on. Once you get done with Fatal Vows, you will have to find another crime show to binge on.

Homicide Hunter

Joe Kenda is a retired officer from the Colorado Springs police department. He joined the service in 1973 where he worked his way up becoming a detective in 1977. He was assigned to the burglary division and worked there for quite some time until he managed to solve a double shooting case that had stumped veteran detectives. From then on he worked in the homicide division and this series showcases all the cases he came across.

Following the career of the detective, we see many interesting cases, including the one that changed the course of his career. According to sources Kenda solved 356 of the 387 cases assigned to him. In the dramatic recreation by the show, we hear from witnesses, members of law enforcement agencies, media personnel covering the cases, and the friends and family of victims. As the story unfolds, you will find yourself engrossed in the case, trying to figure out who the criminal mastermind is.

Deadly Women

As the title of the series suggests, this show is all about murders committed by women. Presented by Candace DeLong, a former FBI criminal profiler, and narrated by Lynnanne Zager, the show originally began as a three-part miniseries in 2005. In 2008 though, it was revived as a regular show. The narrator was re-cast and Marsha Crenshaw took the helm. Another major change made to the show was that the cases featured in each episode decreased from 4 to 3. Given its popularity, the show has been translated to Spanish and Italian which airs on the channels Discovery en Español and Real-Time Italy respectively.

The great thing about Spectrum TV is it is On Demand library where you can watch all the past episodes with ease. You get access to all the Investigation Discovery shows and all you need is a good internet connection.  Spectrum Internet is its perfect partner.
