CNX (TV channel)

  (Redirected from Trailer Park (TV series))

CNX was a channel operated by Cartoon Network Europe (Turner Broadcasting System Europe) in the UK and Ireland. It was aimed at a male audience, with daytime programming aimed at older children and teenagers (predominantly 12–18 years of age), and evening programming aimed at older teenagers and young adults (the 17-34 demographic). The channel was carried in the 'Entertainment' section of the Sky programme guide and was also available on cable. Although CNX was said to stand for Cartoon Network Extreme by some viewers, the channel was advertised with a promo featuring the character Brak from The Brak Show singing "C is for comedy, N is for Japanese animation, X is for extreme", as well as a promo showing Aku from Samurai Jack morphing into silhouettes of characters of shows from the channel.

ProgrammingEdit

The channel's programming was divided between an adult-aimed output in the evenings and younger skewing programming under the Toonami block, which was moved to the channel in May 2003[1] after a few months of the former toonami shows being shown under the CNX identity. The station primarily aired anime, extreme sports, and dramas (principally action/crime series such as The Shield and Birds of Prey). The channel's film telecasts predominantly consisted of martial arts films, anime films and action/drama.[citation needed]

The channel closed as CNX at 1am on 8 September 2003 after nearly a year of broadcasting, with a Turner spokesperson saying "the adult market is crowded and competitive."[2]
