Turner launching Cartoon Network, Adult Swim in Canada

Turner is launching Cartoon Network in Canada for the first time after striking a joint venture deal with Canadian broadcaster Teletoon.

The move will see the two companies launch a digital specialty channel that will also include a late-night Adult Swim programming block.

Cartoon Network will air series including The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time and Regular Show between 6am and 9pm and Adult Swim will launch a number of its edgy adult animated series in an evening block.

“We are honored that Cartoon Network has entrusted Teletoon to manage these two great brands in Canada,” said Len Cochrane, president, Teletoon Canada. “This marriage between Teletoon and Cartoon Network will grant us the opportunity to offer more cartoons, more stories and more excitement to everyone, everywhere.”
