The channel will revert back to Cartoon Network +1 on Wednesday 11th July at 6am.

Back in June, there was speculation that there will be a Ben 10 themed channel coming soon, after it was emerged that Cartoon Network’s owner – Turner renamed one of their existing Ofcom licences to “Ben 10”, at the time it wasn’t publicly known exactly what it could be, news of the thematic pop-up channel launching has put all speculation to rest.
