Sky Krimi is a German television channel dedicated to crime series. It mostly features original German language productions.

It started out as "Krimi & Co" on the DF1 satellite platform when it launched. DF1 had several channels dedicated to television series, including soap channel Herz & Co and comedy channel Comedy & Co. When DF1 became Premiere World in October 1999, the sister channels were rebranded.

In May 2002, Krimi & Co was renamed "Premiere Krimi". On 4 July 2009, the channel became "Sky Krimi" and was moved back to the entertainment package from the film package.

On 1 April 2021, Sky Deutschland launched a local version of crime factual channel Sky Crime;[1] this coexists with the fiction-led Sky Krimi, in the same way that the British version of Sky Crime exists alongside fiction-led Sky Witness.
