The Katz Networks are targeted, demo-specific brands leading a new generation of fast-growing, multi-platform networks that super serve consumers with diverse and entertaining programming available to be seen everywhere, on over-the-air, cable, satellite television, via over-the-top services, on mobile devices and on the web.

The networks are among the fastest growing in television today. Four of the five networks – BounceGritCourt TV Mystery and Laff –  each reach more than 90 percent of all U.S. households. They are Nielsen rated and depend on a blend of general-market and direct-response advertising.

In May 2019, Katz brought Court TV back to television as its fifth network, bringing viewers live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of important trials across the country.

Founder Jonathan Katz, a former top Turner Broadcasting programming executive, continues to lead the Katz networks business. The company is based in the Atlanta area.
