YouTube TV adds Court TV to channel lineup

Originally launched in the early 90s, Court TV was one of the first cable channels to cash in on America’s obsession with true crime stories. The network saw consistent success until it was rebranded in 2008 as TruTV and turned towards reality shows and “caught on camera” style content.

In May of 2019, Court TV was reborn, but as a digital only channel, available over the air in many markets and through several streaming services like Pluto TV. The channel has only grown since relaunch, and now it’s hitting another major streaming service.

But starting May 5, YouTube TV subscribers can get their crime fix as Court TV is added to the regular lineup. The channel is available to all customers at no additional charge.

Like the Court TV of the 90s, the channel covers high profile court cases, shows like It Takes A Killer and The FBI Files, live Supreme Court arguments, and more. A live show each morning covers the most important action from the day, legal news and analysis.
