    Court TV to return to television in 2019 after a decade off the air

    CINCINNATI – One of the most iconic brands in television history will return when Katz Networks, part of The E.W. Scripps Company, relaunches Court TV – a new network devoted to live, gavel-to-gavel coverage, in-depth legal reporting and expert analysis of the nation’s most important and compelling trials.

    For more than 20 years, Court TV brought high-profile courtroom dramas, including the trials of O.J. Simpson, the Menendez brothers and Casey Anthony, into American living rooms. Continuing that legacy, the new Court TV network will launch in May 2019 and run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will be available for cable, satellite, over-the-air and over-the-top carriage...

    "...In its new incarnation, Court TV will be an ad-supported network available through cable and satellite bundles as well as over-the-air and streaming over-the-top. The network has secured over-the-air distribution on major local TV station groups including Tribune, Scripps and Univision. Those deals will make Court available in more than 50% of U.S. TV households at launch, with cable reach to 25% of homes...."

    Awesome. I hope that the channel has an app for my Alexa.

    I watched almost every minute of the O.J. trial, I was stuck on bedrest for months. Really, that trial was pure theater.

    My first foray into participation on an internet forum was the Court TV website. I followed several high-profile cases on CTV and discovered Websleuths when Court TV website closed. I suspect former CTV participants came here, as well.

    I wonder how many of the old guard at Court TV might return? Nancy Grace. Beth Karas. Jean Casarez. Greta Van Susteren. Dan Abrams. So far, only Vinnie Politan is said to be returning.

    What does over the air and streaming over the top stations mean?

    Cubby, at the risk of triggering flashbacks, "Let's unleash all the lawyers!" :p:D

    *ETA: I live in mortal fear of CTV bringing Kimberly Guilfoyle, she of the 6-inch stilettos fame, on board as an anchor. Ugh.
