Continuity of Adult Swim on TruTV (Recorded 18th November 2016):

The content on Adult Swim is not appropriate for children and airs way past the 9pm watershed on FOX and TruTV (both general entertainment channels). Unlike the United States, the UK doesn’t have an age rating system and channels aimed for children can’t air adult content; for these reasons Adult Swim UK does not air on Cartoon Network.
