Network Description & Basic Information (Source: wikipedia.org)

Turner Network Television, usually referred to as TNT, is a cable TV network created by media mogul Ted Turner in 1988. TNT airs National Basketball Association games, NASCAR, and reruns of popular network television shows from the past.

In 2001, TNT relaunched itself, with a new logo and tagline, "We Know Drama". It now focuses on sports and high-action movies with lots of drama and energy, and the "Primetime in the Daytime" weekday lineup featuring reruns of network TV dramas such as Law & Order, Charmed, NYPD Blue, ER, and Judging Amy. It is a direct contrast to sister network TBS, which shows more comedy related programming.

A British version of TNT was launched in the 1990s (called TNT Classic Movies) but was exclusively dedicated to movies, mainly from the MGM and Warner Brothers archives. At the time the channel was combined with Cartoon Network Europe into a channel called TNT & Cartoon Network. It was later renamed TCM (Turner Classic Movies), presumably to coincide with the launch of the US channel. TNT continued to run in the UK, consisting of shows, newer movies, music and sports but closed in mid-2000.

In 2004, TNT became the first Turner Network to begin broadcasting in High Definition.
