CNX was a channel operated by
Turner Broadcastingin the UK and Irelandaimed at the 12-34 male audience, first started broadcasting on October 14, 2002and lasted until September 7, 2003when it was changed to the Toonami channel. The station was based around three key ingredients -- Action, Adventure and Anime-- which formed the backbone of the schedule. The Daytime Schedule consisted largely of Anime and more 'mature' cartoons from the existing Toonami blocks on Cartoon Networkwhile the evening moved into more non-censored Anime which would have been aired on Adult Swimin the US at the time. Later there were the 'Triple A Movies' which were a combination of Martial arts films, Anime films and otherwise. The channel later in the evenings broadcast mainstream television programmes such as The Shield.
hows that aired on CNX
The daytime schedule consisted of the child-friendly Toonami versions of such shows as:
Dragon Ball Z
*Batman of the Future (also known as Batman Beyond)
Tenchi in Tokyo
These shows were mainly edited versions which were retained when the channel moved to Toonami.
The late evening block consisted originally of material both animated and live-action (fully unedited):
*Birds of Prey
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
The Brak Show
Space Ghost Coast to Coast
The Ripping Friends
Since CNX's demise, most of these shows have neither been repeated, nor had their later seasons premiered. Outlaw Star was repeated at least once on Toonami, unedited very late at night, and Cowboy Bebop was recently confirmed to be returning to UK TV on CSC's
AnimeCentral(available on Sky). Adult Swim's block has since expanded and is now shown on UK Channel Bravo and Bravo 2. But new episodes of anything from AS previously shown by CN or CNX have yet to air.
Triple A Movies
The "Triple A Movies" block, which stood for the channel's combination of "Action, Adventure and Anime" showed mainly Martial Arts films but showed other material as well, a selection being:
Blue Submarine No. 6
Guns & Talks
Death Race 2000
The Heroic Trio
Trailer Park was a 'magazine' styled show, described on the now-defunct CNX website as: "Featuring the very best of free sports lifestyle programmes, including 'Chilli Factor'. From mid-November drop in to 'Trailer-Park TV' a brand new show brought to you by
Christian Stevenson(AKA 'Seth-Seth Antoine') and Ed Leigh(AKA 'Carlos Fandango') from their gleaming chrome trailer parked under a cityscape flyover. 'Trailer Park' is your daily flyby of kick-ass, action, anime, movies and gaming."
