TruTV (stylized truTV) 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, the channel’s positioning was reoriented with a focus on comedy-based reality series.
As of January 2016, TruTV is available to approximately 89.5 million households in America.
