Corus announced that Teletoon will be rebranded as Cartoon Network on March 27. The existing Cartoon Network channel will become a Canadian version of its sister brand Boomerang the same day. (Source)

Well. This is the end of an era.

I am sure gonna miss the Teletoon brand on TV.
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?
No effects. Will remain as it is.
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.
I am still into watching those channels (except Treehouse, Disney Junior, and Nickelodeon) because I have the right away to.

Besides, adult cartoons are fine too. But not bad ones like Sausage Party.
With that said, for example, on Shaw Communications in Winnipeg/Selkirk/Steinbach in Manitoba, Cartoon Network will be located on channel 43.

And Boomerang will be on channel 67.
In the next month, Teletoon will be no more for good.
No. This is not good. This is bad.

I am going to miss out on the legacy animation station.
I have a lot of plans in motion for the relaunch.
Oh do you now. What are the plans for the relaunch?
I am finding my launch partners for it.

I am also buying some drinks and snacks for the relaunch.

My TV line-ups are all set.
All right guys. The last show to be broadcast on TELETOON before the changeover will be "DC Super Hero Girls" at 5:45 AM ET/6:45 AM AT on March 27.

After that show, the channel will air some ads, and a couple of promos for other shows (which will ironically never air due to the changeover to Cartoon Network). The changeover to Cartoon Network will take place at 6:00 AM ET/7:00 AM AT.

Saw it on TELETOON's website.
Maybe it's a glitch but the schedule tab for me on is now giving me the Disney XD schedule.
Are they crazy right now? I think it'll be fixed through next week.
New North Networks, Cross Country TV Ltd., Cablevision, Maskatel, RiverTV are the providers that replaced TELETOON with Cartoon Network this morning.

Also, MNSI just dropped Cartoon Network in favour of Boomerang at the same time.
You know what is bizarre?

TVTV and Zap2it still show the logos for the channels' former brandings, with the new call signs.

TV Passport shows the correct logos, and the new call signs.

See for yourselves.
I've got a serious problem right now!

YTV and Nickelodeon Canada have nothing airing after 7:00 a.m. beginning May 29. Treehouse, will still be on the air in the long run.

See to see for yourself.
The same things is happening to a few others channels such as Disney Channel. So, its more likely that. Also, Corus only lost the streaming rights of Nick shows, not the broadcast rights.
And from what I saw, Disney Junior and Disney XD are continuing on the air into June, just like Treehouse, Cartoon Network, and Boomerang.

Seeing YTV, Nickelodeon, and Disney Channel disappear at 7:00 a.m. AT/6:00 a.m. ET beginning May 29 could be very dangerous.
I just found out that ABC Spark, DejaView, DTOUR, and History2 are also disappearing at 7:00 a.m. AT/6:00 a.m. ET beginning May 29.

CMT Canada and MovieTime are following suit beginning June 5, at 7:00 a.m. AT/6:00 a.m. ET.

So, which Corus channels will be impacted? I need a full list please.
I never use the site, "" , so I am wondering if this is the first time you have noticed, in the past, that channel listings are missing? The site claims to have 2 months scheduled into the future. Has that always been true? There could be a number of reasons listings are not given.
Oh, right. They are forgetting the listings for many channels.

I think it'll get fixed eventually, in order to prevent Corus from losing these channels.
I was on TVTV this morning.

The logos for Cartoon Network HD (East) and Boomerang TV HD have been updated.
I have not been able to watch either of the new channels in my household, because my brothers use the living room TV too much. I have no satellite TV receiver or cable TV subscription in my bedroom.

I just hope Corus Entertainment doesn't rebrand anymore kids' TV channels. Someone on Twitter thinks that YTV has fired their final program jockeys, without any official announcement given.
