Court TV rang the closing Nasdaq closing bell Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019.

  • The event marked the network’s expansion into 19 new markets.
  • Court TV, in its current form, is owned by Katz Networks, which, in turn is part of E.W. Scripps.
  • Scripps’ stock is traded on the Nasdaq.
  • The network, although similar in content, is technically unrelated to the Court TV that operated from 1991 to 2008.
  • Turner Broadcasting, which owned Court TV at the time, changed the name of the channel to truTV in 2008.
  • Katz is, however, operating under a licensing agreement with WarnerMedia to use the name.
  • The network is available over the air mostly as a digital subchannel in select markets.
