Adult Swim Programming Now Airing On Enorme TV In France

Enorme TV, a comedy and music channel in France have made a broadcasting deal with Turner Broadcasting System Europe to air Adult Swim shows, the deal comes after the reintroduction of the Adult Swim block in the UK on FOX. At present, Enorme TV is airing two Adult Swim shows, Robot Chicken and Loiter Squad. Adult Swim is the most popular programming block for young adults in the United States and Turner has been waiting for that breakout moment in order to appeal to international markets.

After the UK and France, Turner have ambitions to expand the Adult Swim brand to other countries in the Europe, Middle East and Africa area in 2016, a list of countries is yet to be disclosed by Turner. These expansion plans also follow Turner’s deal with Spotify to add Adult Swim shows to its new streaming video platform.

Turner EMEA president Giorgio Stock made this statement regarding Adult Swim’s expansion plans in Europe:

“In the US, Adult Swim is the number one basic cable destination for Millennials and has been for many years, and we’ve always wanted to crack that nut internationally. The time has come now to ramp that up, because we now have more owned content than ever. We’ve seen a real momentum internationally for audiences wanting to see Rick and Morty from online data, and from operators wanting to buy it from us. We’ve decided we want to build the brand, and not just the show.”

Adult Swim Returns To The UK On Fox On 10th September: America’s Most Popular Channel For Young Adults Returns To The UK As A Programming Block

Adult Swim, Turner’s adult animation and live action channel in the United States will be returning to the UK as a programming block on general entertainment channel, FOX on Thursday 10th September. The Adult Swim block will air from 11pm every Thursday and will feature UK premieres such as Rick and Morty and Mr. Pickles. Also returning to the UK will be Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and The Venture Bros. and other new shows such as Black Jesus and Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell. Adult Swim made its UK debut in 2006 on Bravo, followed by FX (Fox UK’s predecessor channel) and Turner Classic Movies 2.

Jeff Ford, the managing director for Fox International Channels UK made this statement about the Adult Swim deal with Turner:

“The acquisition of these satirical, riotous new series cements FOX as the home of adult animated and live-action comedy on Thursday nights in the U.K. Fans of Family Guy and American Dad! will be sure to love these irreverent comedies, already cult classics in the U.S.”

Humphrey Black, the VP of media distribution at Turner Broadcasting System EMEA also made this statement about the Adult Swim and there is potential to rollout Adult Swim on other platforms in other European markets.

“Adult Swim is the top-performing cable channel among U.S. Millennials and we’re delighted to be partnering with FOX to bring this hugely popular brand and its abundance of hilarious entertainment to audiences here in the U.K. This is a key part of our broader strategy for bringing Adult Swim to audiences in Europe across multiple platforms.”

Adult Swim timeshares with Cartoon Network in the USA at night, but is treated as a separate channel for Nielsen ratings purposes, as Adult Swim serves an older demographic.

Note: It is important to note that this content is not appropriate for children. The content is aired post-watershed and on a general entertainment channel that also airs other adult content and is not airing on a children’s channel. This complies with the Ofcom (The UK’s broadcasting regulator) broadcasting code.
