Hopefully SHAW adds this and doesn't just drop the Action channel. 

from corusent.com:
Corus Entertainment announced today that it is launching the world’s first ever 24-hour Adult Swim channel in Canada on April 1, 2019. Engaging viewers around-the-clock through its bold and irreverent voice and diverse slate of new and returning animated comedies and live action programming, the new channel features iconic Adult Swim series including original series Rick and Morty, Robot Chicken, Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, and The Eric Andre Show, plus popular acquisitions Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, American Dad, and more.
“We’re thrilled to bring the unique Adult Swim experience to viewers in Canada,” said Daniel Eves, SVP of TV Networks, Corus Entertainment. “Building on the existing popularity of Adult Swim content, a 24/7 Adult Swim channel underscores Corus’ dedication to delivering content that audiences crave. Adult Swim rounds out our specialty portfolio with its one-of-a-kind programming, and strengthens Corus’ presence as the leader in specialty entertainment in Canada.”
The launch of Adult Swim in Canada also demonstrates an extension of Corus’ long-term partnership with Turner. Since Turner’s launch of Adult Swim in the United States in 2001, Adult Swim has become the #1 network with adults 18-34 and they have held this spot for the past 14 years. Adult Swim in Canada will mirror the programming and brand voice of the acclaimed channel in the U.S., delivering audiences new series day and date with the U.S. year-round.

So apparently some Canadian cable companies ( Telus, Rogers and Videotron so far ) have already announced that they will be carrying this new channel. Can anybody here from SHAW let us know what the plan is. Hopefully they won't just drop the Action channel ( like they did with Vintage ) after the name/content switch.

Hi  

We appreciate the enthusiasm but unfortunately we don't have any information to share on this yet. That said, if we do end up carrying this channel it will be announced on Free Previews, Free Channels | TV - Shaw

Tamara - thanks for the quick reply. That being said - it's not exactly a new channel as you already carry the Action channel. I just wanted to know if SHAW was going to keep carrying the channel after the switch or would they just drop it like they did for Vintage TV.

So looking at the Gateway on-screen listings the change in programming is starting at 3 am on April 1st. Since this is less than 2 weeks away I find it ridiculous that there has been no official word from SHAW on their own site or from a SHAW representative here whether or not SHAW will be keeping this new channel or just dropping it like they did for Vintage TV when that channel rebranded a few months ago. Come on guys - how about an update.

So now that Adultswim is here.  I know it's on free preview, but what happens after?

Do we have to subscribe to this channel after the free preview? What package is it part of on Bluesky?
