No effects. Will remain as it is.I wonder why they didn't just use the Teletoon West feed to launch Boomerang instead, they way we would have all 3. Also do anyone know if the French Télétoon will be affected?
Teletoon's brand had actual value back then. In the late '00s and early '10s, shows produced for the channel were sold internationally to great success. Cartoon Network in the U.S. made plenty off of Bakugan, Johnny Test, Totally Spies, and Total Drama. It would've been silly to kill off a name that was launching hits just to fuel an American brand. Kids here would've been far more familiar with Teletoon's name than CN's at the time.I feel like this should have occurred when they launched Cartoon Network/Adult Swim back in 2012. It never really made sense to me to have both these channels airing program from the same or similar library of shows. They should have either relaunched Teletoon into Cartoon Network in 2012 and rebrand the Teletoon Retro channel into Boomerang back then.
Teletoon West uses the same licence as Teletoon East, so it would be like launching a new channel from scratch, except they have a channel number assigned on the satellite feeds. I don't think many other providers carry both time-shifted feeds.I wonder why they didn't just use the Teletoon West feed to launch Boomerang instead, they way we would have all 3.
I am still into watching those channels (except Treehouse, Disney Junior, and Nickelodeon) because I have the right away to.This topic is getting a lot of attention and it makes me wonder, how many of the people contributing to this discussion actually watch those children's TV channels?
About the only time I ever glanced at those tv channels was when my children were very young and they were watching a program on that particular TV Channel and I was merely just in the same room with them. Other than that, my kids have grown up a bit now and don't even watch any of those conventional TV channels no more and they also have no desire to watch them.
