Said rebrand took place on February 5, 2007; Teletoon's on-air appearance and its website were dramatically changed, the website for The Detour (then the name of its late night block) was moved to teletoon.com, and the aesthetic appearance of both the normal block and The Detour changed.
Four years later, on September 5, 2011, Teletoon's on-air branding changed again to reflect the 50th anniversary of one of its owners, Astral Media, and to reflect the transition to digital television.
Since then, Teletoon has begun airing a number of live-action programs in the daytime, including original series such as My Babysitter's a Vampire and Mudpit, as well as acquired programming and movies.
Occasionally, the channel also airs live-action movies related to cartoons and comic books, such as Space Jam, Sin City, and Batman.
After Astral Media's stake in TELETOON Canada Inc was purchased by Corus Entertainment, several of Teletoon's original and acquired shows, primarily live-action series, began airing on YTV.
In turn, Teletoon began airing anime series that aired on YTV, including Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II, and Pokémon, beginning with XY and reruns of Pokémon: Advanced.
The debut of Zexal, in particular, marks the first time an acquired anime series aired on the channel since the debut of Mega Man NT Warrior back in 2003.
