Emerging Sports TV - TruTV - Netflix
TruTV (stylized as truTV) is an American pay television channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting division of WarnerMedia. The network was originally launched in 1991 as Court TV, a network that focused on crime-themed programs such as true crime 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 was relaunched with a focus on comedy-based reality series. As of January 2016, TruTV is available to approximately 89.5 million households in the United States.
Emerging Sports TV - Relaunch as truTV - Netflix
On July 11, 2007, it was announced that Court TV would be relaunched as truTV on January 1, 2008. The new brand was intended to accompany a larger shift towards action-oriented reality series which did not necessarily involve crime or law enforcement, such as Black Gold, Hardcore Pawn, Lizard Lick Towing, Ocean Force, and the caught-on-camera series World's Dumbest. The network promoted its new positioning under the slogan “Not Reality. Actuality.”; network staff argued that the term “reality” had become associated with unrealistic programming, and that it wanted to emphasize that its new programs would feature “real” people. In 2011, as part of a new partnership between CBS Sports and Turner Sports, TruTV began to broadcast coverage of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. As part of the re-branding as TruTV, daytime trial coverage was cut back to 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET and branded as In Session. In 2009, production of the program was shifted to the facilities of HLN in Atlanta. On March 4, 2013, In Session was cut to a two-hour, taped format. On September 30, 2013, In Session was cancelled, and replaced by a block of archived programming under the banner In Session Presents. Reruns of CourtTV series have since aired on HLN (primarily Forensic Files), and have also been syndicated to the over-the-air digital network Justice Network. With changes to HLN's programming strategy and the growing popularity of the genre, the network began to produce and premiere more original true crime programs in 2017.
