->''Keep it WEIRD!... on YTV.''
-->-- Their slogan

YTV is a Canadian network targeting at children. If it had to be compared to an American equivalent, it would be {{Nickelodeon}}, from which YTV takes a large amount of programming. Indeed, YTV has aired at least one episode of every Nicktoon there is. Incidentally, a Canadian Nickelodeon channel, owned by YTV's parent company Creator/{{Corus Entertainment}}, was launched in 2009. YTV has had several programming blocks hosted by [=PJs=], or '''P'''rogram '''J'''ockeys, who would come in [[CreditsPushback during the credits]] and do various things such as answering e-mails while introducing the next show, one of such blocks being ''The Zone'', their after-school segment.

A staple of any TV watching Canadian kid in TheNineties. The mornings featured an array of programming for younger viewers with tons of interaction from the [=PJs=] and many puppet characters who visited or lived in their lavish, treehouse-themed sets. YTV split off another network from its morning-midday programming, Creator/TreehouseTV, to cater to toddlers and preschoolers. Come afternoon, YTV was the go-to source for everything from ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Beasties]]'' to ''Anime/SailorMoon'', ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', ''Series/TheSecretWorldOfAlexMack'' and ''[[Series/TheAddamsFamily The New Addams Family]]'', hosted by a duo of wiseass male [=PJs=] and their gum-covered alien television creature Snit, whose screen was a giant mouth. Evenings shifted to a darker note with programming such as ''Series/{{Animorphs}}'', ''WesternAnimation/CyberSix'', ''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'', and ''Series/{{Goosebumps}}''. Between shows throughout the day, animated shorts dubbed "Short Circuitz" would air, ranging from funny and lighthearted ones earlier in the day to darker and surprisingly wistful ones at night ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbhGmzvkp70 "Windows"]], for example). It was also responsible for original and often low-budget shows as well, such as ''Series/PJKatiesFarm'' and ''Series/RadioActive'', and the long-running game shows ''Series/VideoAndArcadeTop10'' & ''Series/UhOh''. These days, most of this material is famed for its massive nostalgia factor among natives of the 1990s and late 1980s. Late at night during this period, {{BritCom}}s such as ''YesMinister'' and ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' were run.

Come the new millennium, YTV gradually shifted its programming. It was once, the primary source of {{anime}} for Canadians, which reached its peak with ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' and the ''Bionix'' block, that brought several anime series (mostly dubbed by Creator/TheOceanGroup for [=CanCon=], or Canadian content, reasons) to viewers, and threw in Canadian-produced CGI favourites by MainframeEntertainment, such as ''[[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Beasties]]'', ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' and ''ShadowRaiders''. [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Then the Bionix block was moved to late Saturday nights]] [[NetworkDecay to make room for reality shows and sitcoms]]. Before, in 2007, YTV acquired approval from the CRTC [[WhatCouldHaveBeen to launch an anime-focused channel to be called]] ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Anime Channel]]''. [[ShootTheShaggyDog The license expired in January of 2010]] and it wasn't even launched. The block was later shortened to just an hour of reruns before it was ultimately removed in 2010. By 2014, YTV let go of the few Anime licences it did have, with ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Anime/{{YuGiOh}}'' being shuffled over to sister network Creator/{{Teletoon}}.

Not to be confused with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yomiuri_Telecasting_Corporation Yomiuri TV]], a Japanese TV network sharing the same initials (albeit in lowercase). Though considering this site's demographic, it's highly unlikely that you will confound them. Incidentally, the Japanese YTV was the original channel for ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'', which was a big hit on the Canadian YTV. Also not to be confused with Yorkshire Television, an {{ITV}} franchise commonly referred to as YTV.
