Vision is an American basic cable and satellite television channel founded and controlled by TechKon and co-controlled by Chaossy, specializing in the RaGE-Typewriter division. The channel is owned by Viacom International Media Networks and programmed by Typewriter Productions, along with the RaGE-Typewriter division of RaGE Media Group mainly controlling the anime and film division. The programming is centered mainly around animated adult television series, anime, and movies. See the official and current schedule for Vision on this spreadsheet.
Usually, only TV-PG and up is used. Anything under that rating is uncommon, except for programming on Rising Sun. When Vision proposed this system in early 2012, the Nickelodeon network wasn't so sure. They thought about it, and finally allowed Vision to use it in mid-2012. Other networks have actually thought about switching to this system, since it is more in-detail.

Vision's commercial breaks work how Cartoon Network's does. After 10-15 minutes into a show, there is a 5 minute commercial break. The show ends 5 minutes before the next show.
Vision censors nudity and strong language, unless it is an uncut program which can only air at 12/11c or later. Vision rarely airs any programs with real nudity, unless it is a midnight feature presentation. (rated R movies and such)
Bumper & Ad Music
Vision mainly uses Flying Lotus, Burial, Deadmau5's experimental or short songs, and Avicii's (without vocals, most of the time) music for their ads and bumpers.
A new feature on the website, which streams random music 24/7. It was released from the beta stage in September of 2015.
Parental/content warnings are shown as an indicator that viewer discretion is advised and is intended for mature audiences before a program with a TV-MA rating, including all subratings, if any.
Various billboards used by Vision
Please add bumpers/promos. Make them good quality, and not really kid-ish if it is advertising the adult shows.
