    What was the idea of these channels launching in Canada after so many years? They only launched in 2009 and 2012. The company that owns them uses YTV to show most new Nickelodeon shows from the US and Teletoon shows most new Cartoon Network shows. YTV and Teletoon are the main channels with original programming also. What was the idea of launching Nickelodeon and CN so late in Canada or what was the need in launching them at all when YTV/Teletoon already had/still have the first run shows from the channels?

    It's widely believed Corus had to launch branded "Nickelodeon" and "Cartoon Network" channels in Canada to have access to the programming libraries. Essentially, they're contractual obligations.

    May not make a lot of sense knowing YTV and Teletoon usually air some of their shows, but for the most part they are still good going channels.
