KDLH The Duluth CW announced this weekend that they will be launching 5 new channels in the coming weeks for the Duluth area.

Four of the sub-channels, Justice, Laff, Escape and Quest will hit the air May 1st and Court TV will launch May 8th. You may need to rescan your channels on your TV to get the new channels added and you'll need to check with your cable or satellite providers to see if it's available.

As a cord-cutter, I applaud the move to add more choices for people who don't have cable or satellite anymore. Here is a list of the new channels and what you can expect:

  • Justice Network {3.2} – Justice Network is a 24/7 broadcast television network that entertains and informs its viewers with gripping crime and investigation programming while making communities safer.
