In Canada, it was shown on the YTV network under the name "Beasties" (or, in French, Robots-Bêtes). In the United States, it was syndicated through Claster TV.

Update (Jan. 2003): Beast Wars on DVD

Cybertrons have their own lexicon for time, as follows:

A Nano-Klik is approximately a second. 
A Cycle is approximately a minute 
A Mega-Cycle is approximately an hour 
A Deca-Cycle is approximately 30 days. 
A Stellar Cycle is approximately a year. 

The Cybertron Stellar cycle is equivalent to about 400 EARTH DAYS, 
though the standard cybertron day is 20 Earth hours. 
Months and weeks have no meaning to Cybertrons, 
though they sometimes use the terms on other worlds 
(borrowed from their experiences on Earth).
