Cartoon Network heads to Canada


Canadian animation destination Teletoon and Turner Broadcasting have announced a brand new partnership that will see Teletoon and its sister channels become the exclusive home to Cartoon Network, and [adult swim] programming, alongside 2000 half hours of classic Cartoon Network, and [adult swim] content. But that’s not all, together the two have announced a brand new ad-supported digital specialty channel called… Cartoon Network!

The channel will run like the U.S. based Cartoon Network runs – in two blocks, the Cartoon Network block between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by an Adult Swim late-night lineup commencing at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The two animation behemoths announced this partnership as Teletoon celebrates its 15th Anniversary, and Cartoon Network celebrates its 20th. It hasn’t been confirmed, but I’d be willing to bet Corus Entertainment, and Astral Media (Teletoon’s owners) will be launching Cartoon Network on the CRTC approved “Teletoon KaPow!” broadcasting license.

The new network is set to launch later this year, and the branding will be seen across standard and high definition linear television, Video on Demand, broadband and mobile platforms. TÉLÉTOON, Quebec’s French oriented Teletoon sister will serve its audience by launching a Cartoon Network programming block, along with making programming available online, through mobile and Video on Demand. Canada joins 23 other regions in the world by adopting the CN branding.
