truTV is television’s destination for real-life stories told from an exciting and dramatic first-person perspective and features high-stakes, action-packed original shows.
truTV (formerly Court TV) is an American cable and satellite television channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner. The network was originally launched in 1991 as Court TV, a network that focused on crime-themed programs such as documentary series, legal dramas, and coverage of prominent criminal cases. With its relaunch as truTV in 2008, the network revamped its lineup with a focus on reality shows and "caught on camera" programs, which the network marketed as "actuality" television. In October 2014, TruTV's lineup was reoriented with a focus on comedy programming and comedy-based reality series.
As of February 2015, approximately 89.7 million US households (77% of households with television) receive truTV.
