#killerpost - Oxygen (TV channel) - Netflix
Oxygen is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group division of NBCUniversal, all owned by Comcast. The channel primarily airs true crime programming targeted towards women. The network was founded by Geraldine Laybourne, and carried a format focused on lifestyle and entertainment programming oriented towards women, similar to competing channels such as Lifetime. NBCUniversal acquired the network in 2007; under NBC ownership, the network increasingly produced reality shows aimed at the demographic, and was re-launched in 2014 to target a “modern”, younger female audience. After the network experienced ratings successes with a programming block dedicated to such programming, Oxygen was re-launched in mid-2017 to focus primarily on true crime programs. As of February 2015, approximately 77.5 million American households (66.5% of households with television) receive Oxygen. Under its current format, the network primarily competes with Investigation Discovery and HLN.
#killerpost - 2017: Re-focus on true crime - Netflix
In December 2016, it was reported that NBCUniversal was considering re-formatting Oxygen as a true crime-oriented channel. Since 2015, the genre had seen growing interest, especially among young adult women. After introducing a true crime programming block known as Crime Time—which aired on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights, and was devoted to series such as Snapped—the network saw a 42% increase in total viewership, and a 22% increase among women 25-54. NBC had reportedly been in talks with Dick Wolf—producer of NBC's Law and Order and Chicago franchises, to take an equity stake in a re-branded channel that could be anchored by the programs. In February 2017, NBCUniversal confirmed that it planned to re-format Oxygen with a focus on true crime programming aimed towards women, including a new season of the Dick Wolf-produced Cold Justice (which had been cancelled by TNT). The change was accompanied by a larger re-branding later in the year, with a new logo featuring the Oxygen name rendered in the style of yellow police tape. NBCUniversal Lifestyle Networks president Frances Berwick stated that the network had not determined the fate of the network's non-crime programming, such as Bad Girls Club, after the full re-branding takes effect. Oxygen's new lineup will be built largely around its existing library of unscripted crime-oriented programming (such as Snapped and its various spin-offs); Berwick explained that NBC had not ruled out adding off-network reruns of police procedurals, such as the Chicago, CSI and NCIS franchises as well (with the latter two having already been aired by the network by that time). During its upfront presentations, Oxygen unveiled other new crime programs for the upcoming season, such as Dick Wolf's Criminal Confessions, Soledad O’Brien's Mysteries and Scandals, Ice Cold Murders (which will be hosted and executive produced by Ice-T), and a docuseries on the murder of Jessica Chambers co-produced with NBCUniversal-funded BuzzFeed. The network also announced Retried, a new series in development by former HLN anchor Nancy Grace, and Kept Alive. In September 2017, Oxygen and USA Network acquired off-network reruns of Chicago P.D., which were added to their schedules in October 2017.
