Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons (Also known as CNHubNicktoons) is a television channel that launched on September 1, 2011. It was announced in December 2010 that Turner, Hasbro/Discovery, and Viacom would team up to create a joint venture between their kid networks that kids will love.
ProgrammingCartoon Hub Nick Fridays, a revival of former Cartoon Network block Cartoon Cartoon Fridays. Though a Turner/Discovery/Hasbro/Viacom channel, aquired programming (like the popular Fox cartoon The Simpsons) will air on the channel overnight every day (with the exception of Fridays due to the new block). On occasion, if a Nick show is still in production but not airing on Nick or Nicktoons, those new episodes would air on Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons and then become part of the channel's schedule regularly (until the show no longer airs on the channel permanently if not aired for less than a year). It is currently unknown if the channel will start airing an adult overnight block (a new [adult swim] block was originally going to premiere on October 2011 on the channel, but was cancelled due to an argument with the executives of the network and had Cartoon Hub Nick Fridays take its place instead). LT Fan asksed that he wanted a preschool block with Dora The Explorer, but luckliy Matthew Stone said no. so they just aired Cartoon Hub Nick Fridays. As of September 26, 2011, the channel now airs music videos that air in-between commercial breaks. So far, the channel only airs songs from various shows on the channel (ex. SpongeBob SquarePants' "Underwater Sun", The Powerpuff Girls' "Love Makes the World Go Round, The Steve Show "Ai no Uta - English Fandub", ect.) but each music video will air only on the show the song was from. Also on the same date, the channel started airing one-minute clips from many different shows airing on the channel. Unlike the music videos, the clips air on many different shows even if they're from the same show.

On April 17, 2012, due to new logo rights with Nickelodeon and Viacom, Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons changed the Nicktoons part to the new current logo of Nicktoons. However, the Livestream, YouTube and Nico Nico Douga versions of the channel still retain the original logo. The Youtube version is changed the logo. In July, they also replaced two characters and placed them with Strawberry Shortcake and Dan from "Dan Vs.".
Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons Rebrand no Hub Characters (2013-14)
On August 2, 2013, the programmers of the channel agreed to remove the hub characters, as it was apparently setting off to more of Hub than than Cartoon Network or Nicktoons, which took effect on August 10, 2013. Again, the Youtube version was changed, but not others.
Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons Regular Rebrand (2014-present)
On May 10, 2014, the programmers of the channel added the new color of Nicktoons's "toons" part of the logo to catch up with the branding of 2014 on Nicktoons and lowered the toons part below the "Nick" part. In addition, the programmers were forced to use Cartoon Network's current logo due to a new rule with the addition of several Television Broadcast Rules. Again, the Youtube version was changed, but not others.

Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons usually varies from 1-2 viewers and had over 300,000 views in total since its launch. On Saturday May 4, 2013, the channel gained its highest viewer rate yet with 700000 viewers during an airing of Spongebob.
The channel has recently been showing Nickelodeon IDs for introing the Nicktoons aired on the channel. Stone has also confirmed that Cartoon Cartoon intros, and The Hub IDs will also intro their rightful shows.
However the Nick IDs were removed in late-December 2011, and haven't been aired since. However, in January 2012, the channel started airing IDs from channels for the shows.
It has not been fully confirmed yet, but commercial breaks for the LiveStream channel could possibly start on the channel around late 2012. These will possibly signal old VHS previews, M&M commercials, and more promotional bumpers.
Homestar Runner started a channel the channel can be viewed here. A pre-launch bumper can be viewed here. HomestarSB9 thought about shutting down the channel on July 1, 2012, but instead he put MattBoo and Rob in charge of the channel as he resigned from the channel.
Around 2012, the main goal for being the YouTube answer for Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons (LiveStream channel) was dropped altogether and became MattBoo, Homestar, Rob, and Bagel's original video uploading YouTube channel. The channel has recieved some criticism, but overall still has near 150 subscribers as of 2013.
CNHubNicktoons on YouTube Block on LiveStream Channel
On January 25, 2013, a block on the LiveStream Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons channel named "CNHubNicktoons on YouTube" was launched, featuring original videos from the four friends.
It started with (and currently airs) "Pokémon! Gotta Catch Eh, Whatever... - Episode 1" (MattBoo), "Timmy's Little Daydream" (MattBoo), and "The Adventures of Slinky - Episode 6" (IAmBagel).
On February 23, 2013, a unknown person (impersonating TheChromePerson) hacked the channel, This hacker was belived to be Web, Web denied this, first he replaced the avatar with a MLP:FiM character's head being blown off and blood marks where the head was (he later made this the background), the background was also anti MLP:FiM related, it was the main characters with a X sign over it. The hacker may have also been TebroJUSA. The following day, the hacker changed the password. Homestar changed it, then the hacker changed it again. Thus, leading Homestar to make CNHubNicktoons2. As Homestar knew, the hacker would change the password again. As he execpted, he did, this resulted in changing the password three times.
However, after finally settling the password, the hacker wasn't seen again, and to this day it is still truly unknown who did it.
The Recovery & Rise of the Channel
The channel recovered from the hack around April. In May 2013, Cand joined the channel. The channel has doubled in viewsand subcribers since then.On August 13, 2013, the official CNHubNicktoons channel was made by MattBoo, featuring clips from many videos and the channel origins. Candhfan previously did one a few days back before MattBoo finished his, but he allowed him to continue his as the trailer. The music track used for it was the famous piece composed by Raymond Scott, "Powerhouse" (which was previously used in Looney Tunes, Ren and Stimpy, and for Cartoon Network's branding from 1999-2004).
Since the channel's rebrand at November 1, 2011 shortly after Cartoon Hub Nick Scare-a-thon, the channel's first ever mascots, "The Hand Dudes", were introduced. They are two hands (sorta like Oobi from the Noggin show of the same name, but with no eyes) that are played by Matthew Stone. They haven't been regularly seen since they only appear in commercial breaks, but they will be given a huge mascot role in 2012. Matthew Stone's characters (like MattBoo, Mr. Pooper, Cassie, ect.) will be the new mascots around late 2012 completley rebranding the channel and removing The Hand Dudes from the channel until 2020. The characters are also going to host the LiveStream channel in 2013 with Stone currently working on the animation for the IDs for the channel.

Operation Lifesaver Demonstration
On April 7, 2012, Cartoon Network/Hub/Nicktoons, Operation Lifesaver, CSX, and Canadian Pacific did a Operation Lifesaver demonstration in Lancaster, MA. A old Shelby CSX-T that used to be owned by the Thrifty rental company was towed from a scrapyard to a commercial railroad crossing in Lancaster. CSX and CP were supplied by the Union Pacific and Kansas City Southern with retired CNW 4344, a high hood GP9 locomotive, and a Kansas City Southern de Mexico ¡Observa, Escucha, Y Vive! caboose, along with various retired boxcars. Later, CSX 2635, a EMD GP38-2, and CP 8521, a GE AC4400CW, pulled the freight with 4344 leading down the tracks to the crossing, where the 3 units hit the CSX-T car. Video recorded from 2635's cab featured the engineer shouting: "That nincompoop won't move!", and blowing the horn. There was cameras placed on the train, along the tracks, in a chopper and in the car with the dummy. The cameras placed on the front of the locomotive and in other vulnerable places were old unused cameras and all survived. The dummy wasn’t so lucky.
