If you just can't get enough of the law and courts, you can now watch Court TV on YouTube TV . The addition comes at no extra cost to YouTube TV subscribers. (Same goes for all the ViacomCBS channels that will be added later this summer.)

In addition to live coverage of ongoing cases — including Supreme Court hearings, which for the first time have their audio being made available in real time — Court TV offers analysis of current proceedings. And that includes cases of national significance that are happening today.

YouTube TV subscribers don't have to do anything special to receive Court TV, unless they're using a custom live guide, in which case they'll need to hop into the settings and enable the new channel .

YouTube TV is the live TV service from Google. It costs $49.99 a month and features a single plan, though there are a number of premium add-ons.
