You've sent a message effective April 1st Court TV will no longer be on Channel 490. Where is it moving to? I need my Court TV!

I deleted my old messages recently, so I can't reference it without resetting my STB. I seem to think that the channel is being discontinued, but I may be mistaken. 😐

The owner of the channel, WPIX, is changing the format of the channel to Classic westerns and taking Court TV off totally. What I wanted to know is Will Court TV be on any other channel now.

If the owner of Court TV is making a format change, I read that to mean that it will be going away as opposed to switching channels.

From what I can piece together, Grit TV will be taking over Court TV's channel. Grit TV's current channel will become Laff TV.  😐

WPIX doesn't own Court TV. To really simplify it, Court TV is like any syndicated television series. A channel chooses to license it for broadcast. That is the case here, and WPIX has chosen a different format for its channel. So my question is will another cable channel pick up Court TV to air.

The discussion about Grit & Court TV seems to apply to the New York City/New Jersey areas. I'm in the Boston area so this doesn't seem to directly apply to me.
