Adult Swim UK's New Website

Adult Swim UK’s New Website

Adult Swim UK has relaunched their website, at the moment it’s somewhat limited but it has a very good purpose as it lists the schedules for the Adult Swim on FOX and TruTV. The website has links to Adult Swim UK’s social media pages and a featured video. For a limited time only, Adult Swim takes over TruTV on Friday nights from 11pm, at present Adult Swim on TruTV is airing episodes from season two of Rick and Morty, season seven episodes of Robot Chicken, season two episodes of The Eric Andre Show, season two episodes of Mr. Pickles and season eight episodes of Squidbillies. TruTV is avaliable on Freeview channel 68, Sky channel 198, Freesat channel 154 and Virgin Media channel 212.

The Adult Swim block is currently airing a new show – Dream Corp LLC, season three episodes of Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, season two episodes of Mr. Pickles and season four episodes of The Eric Andre Show. FOX is the permanent home for Adult Swim in the UK, FOX is a pay-tv channel but FOX airs new episodes either a few weeks or a couple of months after their premiere in the United States, FOX is also available in high definition. Adult Swim on FOX airs on Thursdays from midnight (technically Friday morning) on Sky channel 124, Virgin Media channel 157 and TalkTalk TV channel 422.

Adult Swim on TruTV has its very own presentation and is treated separately from the rest of the channel, the block has unique next/now bumpers, video clip bumpers and promos.

Continuity of Adult Swim on TruTV (Recorded 18th November 2016):

The content on Adult Swim is not appropriate for children and airs way past the 9pm watershed on FOX and TruTV (both general entertainment channels). Unlike the United States, the UK doesn’t have an age rating system and channels aimed for children can’t air adult content; for these reasons Adult Swim UK does not air on Cartoon Network.
