posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Corus Entertainment announced on Monday that it will launch the first-ever 24-hour Adult Swim channel in Canada on April 1. On that day, Corus' "ACTION" channel will rebrand as Adult Swim, and Adult Swim programming on Cartoon Network and the Teletoon at Night programming block will move to the new channel.
The announcement stated that the channel will feature new and returning animated comedies and live-action programming. While Corus did not list any anime properties, nor did it state anything about a Toonami programming block, the announcement did state, "Adult Swim in Canada will mirror the programming and brand voice of the acclaimed channel in the U.S., delivering audiences new series day and date with the U.S. year-round."
The channel will be available for a two-month free preview from April 1 to May 31. Viewers can also watch full episodes On Demand for free until January 2020.
