A new, free channel airs your favorite crime dramas 24/7.

LOS ANGELES -- If you love to binge police procedural dramas, you're in luck. A free, 24/7 channel called CHARGE! is dedicated to the cop shows you know and love.

"CHARGE! is a broadcast television network that consumers can watch over the air with an antenna. It tends to focus on big police dramas," Scott Ehrlich, Chief Innovation Officer at Sinclair told On The Red Carpet.

From modern-day dramas like "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" and "CSI: New York" to classic cop shows like "CHiPs," viewers will be able to solve a multitude of mysteries from the comfort of their homes.

So, why are police shows so popular?

"You can watch an episode, it has a beginning, middle and end. It's a very satisfying experience," Erlich continued. "The shows themselves are high drama, high stakes, well-written, well-acted and that's why I think you see them dominating the television landscape and why we built CHARGE! Around the police dramas."

Erlich says that using an antenna on your TV is not as old-fashioned as you might think.

"We have a generation of people growing up not using antennas, but people adding antennas to their television sets is the fastest growing part of the television business right now."

CHARGE! Launches Monday in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Fresno, San Francisco and Raleigh-Durham.
