Adult Swim, a network of of primarily adult-focused animated comedy shows, is bringing its new on-demand video service to Canada for a monthly subscription fee of $3.99.
For fans of one of the best animated shows currently on TV, Rick and Morty, this means there is now a legal, convienent way to watch Dan Harmon’s animated series.
“We continue to experiment with opportunities to reach our fans and give them access to all of our original content,” said Christina Miller, president and general manager of Turner’s Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang, in a statement to MobileSyrup. “Adult Swim’s core audience is a younger generation who wants to consume content on their screen of choice, and this direct-to-consumer offering satisfies this demand by making our most popular programming more widely available in the Canadian marketplace.”
Adult Swim’s new app is available on the Google Play Store as well as the iTunes Store. It gives users access to more than 400 hours of content including Rick and Morty, The Venture Bros, The Eric Andre Show, Robot Chicken and more.
Adult Swim says that new episodes of shows will be added to the app after they premiere in the U.S premiere, as well as following their Corus Entertainments Canadian Adult Swim channel premiere. That doesn’t always seem to be the case, however, given season two of Rick and Morty still hasn’t been added to the app.
