Announcement and placeholder
In May 2014, Turner Broadcasting System announced that they would launch TruTV, a separate UK version of the US channel of the same name. On 13 June 2014, TruTV launched a placeholder on Freeview channel 68. On 24 July 2014, the TruTV placeholder launched on Sky channel 565.
With the US counterpart relaunched in October 27, 2014 with a new focus on humour while retaining its reality format and a revamped logo, it is unknown if this network or other international versions will follow suit.
On 4 August 2014, TruTV launched as well as being added on Freesat channel 154.
Most of TruTV's programming has originally aired in the USA. Programming ranges from True Crime programming, such as I, Detective and Bait Car to factual reality programming such as Hardcore Pawn and Container Wars, as well as programmes such as Fear Factor and Conan.
On 28 August 2014, a placeholder channel for TruTV +1 launched on Freeview channel 69. It launched on 5 October 2014.
