Cartoon Network Canada Becomes A 24 Hours Service From Monday 4th March

From Monday 4th March at 12am, Cartoon Network Canada will be broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Ever since Cartoon Network Canada launched in 2012, it timeshared with Adult Swim – Cartoon Network’s young adult entertainment brand, but from 4th March, the Adult Swim block will be removed from the schedule. The schedule changes puts Cartoon Network Canada in-line with other international versions of Cartoon Network outside the United States that broadcast around the clock. Adult Swim Canada will be signing on for the final time after CN Canada on Sunday 3rd March at 9pm. After the removal of Adult Swim, CN Canada will gain an additional three hours of airtime.

In Canada, Cartoon Network is operated by Corus Entertainment and uses Cartoon Network’s branding and programming under license from Turner Broadcasting System. CN Canada becoming 24/7 is the channel’s biggest development ever since the closure of Corus’s classic animation channel (and was regarded to being Canada’s equivalent to Boomerang) – Teletoon Retro to help increase distribution of Cartoon Network in Canada which happened over three years ago. Corus’s flagship animation channel – Teletoon also has an adult animation block called Teletoon At Night that sometimes airs Adult Swim branded shows, during the daytime, the channel airs a wide selection of shows that usually airs on CN.

According to a recently appeared billboard advertisement that appeared in Toronto, Adult Swim is relaunching in Canada on Monday 1st April, and according to Canadian anime news blog – I Miss Bionix, the billboard was placed by Corus themselves. 1st April is April Fools’ Day and can be a day of mistruths, but misleading advertising in a developed country such as Canada is illegal. It’s not known in what form Adult Swim will return to Canada, it could be a programming block on one of Corus’s other channels or a video on-demand service. In the meantime of Adult Swim’s absence, people in Canada can watch Teletoon At Night.
