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?
