Adult Swim (stylized as [adult swim]) is an adult-oriented programming block that airs on Cartoon Network from 9:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. EST. The block features myriad stylistically-variable animated series and live-action shows geared toward a 12–34 audience. It is based on the U.S network of the same name.


Adult Swim primarily airs original shows from the U.S. block, as well as shows acquired from other sources. However, several shows from its American counterpart are noticeably absent; G4's now-defunct ADd block and Much, following its shift towards comedy programming, are known to have broadcast a selection of them.[1][2][3][4] Until September 1, 2015, Teletoon's late night block, Teletoon at Night, also aired several of Adult Swim's original series. As of September 2016, the block airs from 9pm-12am.



Adult Swim On Demand[edit]

Adult Swim On Demand is a video-on-demand service featuring series from Adult Swim. The service also features episodes of the block's acquired series.

SVOD mobile app[edit]

In March 2016, a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) app was launched for Android and iOS phones, allowing viewers to watch original programming from Adult Swim in the U.S, including several series that aren't currently airing on Adult Swim Canada, with new episodes being added to the app as soon as they premiere in the U.S. The app is owned by [adult swim] games.[8]

Due to program rights and licensing, several series, such as Mike Tyson Mysteries, Childrens Hospital, and shows airing on Toonami, aren't available for streaming. In addition, Rick and Morty and Robot Chicken premieres are only added after they air in Canada.[9]
