The channel launched on 1 January 2009, opening with an episode of South Park and the Comedy Central Roast of Pamela Anderson. During its first month, the channel launched on Boxer, Canal Digital, Com Hem, Tele2, Telia Digital-tv, SPA, Borderlight and IP Sweden.[4] The channel was added to the Viasat platform on 1 September 2009.[5]

On 5 October 2010, The Daily Show premiered on Comedy Central in Sweden, having previously been broadcast on Canal+ and Kanal 9.[6] The show is broadcast at 7 p.m. Swedish time, only 14 hours after its original U.S. broadcast, and then repeated at 11.05 p.m. This is unusually fast as American talk shows are normally shown with a one-week delay in Sweden.
