    Thanks for posting. Hope the programming doesn't change too drastically as my wife likes Escape for the movies that they run. :(

    You know, I always thought that Escape was one of the less stupidly-named subchannel networks. Sure beats This TV, Me TV, Get TV, Antenna TV, etc.

    Now, of course, Scripps is going to remedy that by changing the name of Escape to "Court TV Mysteries". Are all the people who name networks on drugs? (Don't answer that; I'm not sure I want the answer.)

    I assume that next we will see Grit become "Court TV Cowboy Justice". :rolleyes:

    Bounce TV to African TV and Laff TV Comedy Channel. As we need another Court TV channel that none of the big 3 in KC area have yet.

    I don't think those channels are changing their names anytime soon, and honestly, nor should they be.

    "African TV"...seriously, dude? :facepalm

    Katz is a subsidiary of EW Scripps. Scripps bought them a few years ago.

    I noticed Court TV has a Live Stream on their website, but is there any possibility that "Court TV Mystery" will have a live stream?

    I am not in an area to receive Escape/CTVM OTA apparently even if I put up the biggest antenna known to man according to various antenna websites. Just due to being in a valley surrounded by mountains and being in one of the lowest spots of the valley.....

    I would totally enjoy an online stream if that is ever a possibility.

    Wow, I haven't seen the new Court TV Mystery but randomly noticed on Court TV's website, they air FBI Files & Forensic Files over the weekend.

    I was very impressed how good the online stream looked. It was 720P and playing rather well.

    If they actually do Mystery as a Live Stream, I probably will jump up & down for joy as I miss watching some of these crimes shows, I am too far to reach the market affiliate via OTA, & my cable co doesn't even carry if I got that route.

    Nope. As of today, KMCI still has the same subchannels.

    Court TV Mystery seems to be veering back towards true crime content? They introduced a lot more scripted content a few months ago like Without a Trace but they seem to be going back the other way with new true crime shows instead? Scripted content is now only 3 hours a day with one episode of Scandal, Boston Legal and Without a Trace
