Sounds like alignment with Sky Germany, which has a Sky Krimi channel
I would imagine that Krimi will relaunch at around the same time, sharing Sky Crime's idents.
Sky Krimi is a 100% homegrown crime thriller channel, all originating from Germany or Austria. https://www.sky.de/tvguide/sky-krimi-c1
'Krimi' is a specific German term for crime thrillers, i.e. viewers will say they're going to watch a Krimi tonight.
Sky Crime will be a US-focused "real life, true story" crime reality channel with content from HBO, Oxygen and others.
The names may sound similar, they are completely different propositions.
A+E recently replaced its entertainment channel with C+I in Germany, where it's referred to as
der erste und einzige True-Crime-Sender im deutschsprachigen TV
So you could quite possibly have a Crime and a Krimi channel in Germany, as for viewers they are different things.
Sky Germany have confirmed they are making Sky Krimi available in HD in October. It's the most popular channel in Sky Germany's starter packet.
