Adult Swim is an adult-oriented Canadian English-language programming block that airs on Cartoon Network from 9:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. EST. The block features animated and live-action shows targeting a 12–34 audience. It is based on the U.S network of Adult Swim.

Programming[edit]

Adult Swim primarily airs original shows from the U.S. block, as well as shows acquired from other sources. 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 for three hours from 9:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. EST/PST. There's currently no word yet on whether or not the block goes back to its 9pm-5am slot.

Current[edit]

As of June 2017.[5]

Former[edit]

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.[9]

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.[10]
