Originally, Katz sold the network to affiliated TV stations via ad split, but by October 2015 had moved to paying carriage fees in exchange for distributing the network's ad inventory. Grit used direct response advertising as a meter of viewers before switching to Nielsen rating C-3.It is available on Dish Network channel 217.
