How to Watch truTV Without Cable

Watching your favorite programming on truTV doesn’t have to cost a fortune as there are many methods of streaming the network without cable, bulky equipment, or long-term contracts.

As part of the Warner Bros. Discovery family, truTV originally launched as Courtroom Television Network, or Court TV in July 1991. The network eventually shifted its focus from courtroom programming to broader appeal action and comedies and renamed itself truTV in January 2008.

However, truTV is shifting its focus once again to more sports-oriented programming that can be found on sister networks TBS and TNT. TNT Sports is the home of live games from the NBA, MLB, NHL, USMNT and USWNT soccer, and college basketball during March Madness, which makes truTV a must-have for sports fans. Throughout the day, viewers will still be able to watch classic programming, sitcoms, reality shows, and other content on truTV when the network isn’t airing live sports.
