Toon-A-Vision launches on Eastlink

A new kids TV channel has launched on Eastlink cable systems in Canada owned by Atlantic Digital Networks. Apparently it launched on June 19th. How is there a market for another kids channel in Canada? Surely there is no market for another kids channel? and there's another one on the way. The new Canadian free cable TV service TOON-A-VISION is the new partner of BAT PAT in Canada ? Licensing Magazine

I did some digging. Atlantic Digital Networks appears to be related to Humminah Humminah Animation, a Halifax-based animation company with a second studio in Hamilton.

I'm struggling to understand why they decided to launch a TV channel now. From what I can tell, the vast majority of their productions (if not all) have been service/work-for-hire shows they don't own. The lineup itself isn't really convincing, with a lot of stuff that's either aired on the Corus channels or would've been rejected by them.
