TNT, short for Turner Network Television is a national basic cable network in the United States owned by WarnerMedia. While sister channel TBS mainly airs comedy programming, TNT focuses on drama series.



In March 1986, Ted Turner acquired the MGM library of film and television properties. This library formed the initial programming cornerstone of TBS and TNT, which was launched on October 3, 1988. Versions of the network are customized for Latin America and the Caribbean, with programming available in English, Spanish or Portuguese. TNT was launched in Europe on September 17, 1993, offering classic films and dramatic programming in seven languages. TNT in Asia Pacific, launched October 6, 1994, provides programming in English, with some programs dubbed or subtitled in Mandarin and Thai.

The network can be seen in approximately 65% of all U.S. households.
