    Are there any plans for DISH Network to carry the newly-revived Court TV any time soon?

    Its cable carriage is via local subchannels where in some markets they'll be replacing existing subchannels and in others it will be a brand new subchannel and will take a while before it gets widespread cable carriage in those markets. (i.e. in Philly it will be replacing WPHL's ThisTV subchannel in November, while NYC is getting it on a new subchannel of WJLP at first before it replaces ThisTV on WPIX in November)

    They also will have a free stream on their website, which means unless they strike a pay to play deal or drop the free internet streaming, they probably won't be carried by either satellite provider.

    It will be OTA in my market (South Bend, Indiana).

    The channel is not carried on DISH or DIRECTV (WSJV sold their Fox affiliation in 2016 and was dropped by both satellite companies in favor of a new Fox subchannel on CBS affilate WSBT). WSJV has been transmitting two HD feeds of "Heroes and Icons" since they gave up Fox. A week or two ago they split their feed into six channels, H&I, Justice, Escape, CourtTV, Quest and Bounce. The subchannel is carrying a coming soon slate.

    That 's interesting, as Dish does carry channels like Comet (Sub channel) that is totally free in streaming.

    Comet, or somebody on behalf of Comet, is paying for that, either directly paying for their slot on the lineup, or indirectly paying via the shared ad revenue deal like they have with their non-Sinclair owned affiliates.

    They just launched so the VOD offerings are limited. Keep in mind, despite the era that the logo they're reusing came from, this isn't a revival of the format CourtTV had in its final pre-TruTV years, so you're not going to find a VOD library of scripted crime programming. It's a revival of CourtTV's original live trial news format, so VOD versions of that will expand as it airs live.

    Could Court TV be sold the same way?
