C/S (originally known as Crime/Suspense) is an entertainment channel owned by Solar Entertainment Corporation. It shows mostly American crime and suspense dramas, mysteries, reality, science fiction and action shows. It is the successor to Solar USA, after the latter was replaced by Jack TV. C/S is shown on cable networks throughout the Philippines.

Profile[edit]

Crime/Suspense started operations as Solar USA. In 2005, Jack TV replaced Solar USA and a separate new channel, Crime/Suspense, started test broadcasting on October 15, 2005. On January 1, 2008, the channel became C/S and is now being both on as a cable channel and as a free TV channel through Radio Philippines Network (RPN).

While C/S would retain its official original abbreviation meaning (Crime/Suspense), RPN added a second meaning, Conservation/Survival, as RPN and Solar Entertainment's joint commitment for environment and ecological awareness.[citation needed]

C/S on RPN had its major revamp on October 4, 2008 and is known today as C/S 9, while C/S on Cable TV remains as C/S Origin.
