Teletoon+ (stylised as teleTOON+; formerly Minimax and ZigZap) is a Polish television channel owned and operated by Canal+ Group through ITI Neovision SA, available on NC+ platform. The channel aims at young people in the age group of 10–16 years, carrying various animated films and television series.

History[edit]

Minimax was launched on 16 April 1999 on Canal+ Cyfrowy (later merged with N to become NC+). On 16 October 2004, the channel was renamed ZigZap and changed.

On 1 October 2011, when all of Canal+ channels in Poland were relaunched to bear + suffix in their names, ZigZap was renamed Teletoon+, taking the name from the similarly named channel in France. The French Télétoon was previously operated by Groupe TPS until 2007 when TPS was merged into Canal+, and it took the new Télétoon+ name earlier in May 2011.

On 11 November 2011, the channel launched a high definition simulcast feed.

Programming[edit]

Late night[edit]

From 1 August 1999 until 31 August 2001, Minimax aired a late night programming block titled Game One. It took the name from the French television channel of the same name which Canal+ operated until 2001.

On 1 September 2001, the channel launched a new programming block titled Hyper, which carried the programmes about video gaming, and showed animated series from Japan. It was carried over well into the ZigZap era until 11 November 2011, when it was renamed Hyper+.[2] The block ended on 1 July 2014.[3]

Teletoon+ still broadcasts video game shows in the late night slot, but no particular branding is practised on such programmes.

Other[edit]

Block "Minikaruzela" has started airing on 24 December 2000.[4] It was for children. After Minimini started airing in December 2003, block ended on 10 April 2004.[5] All programs moved to that channel.
