Boomerang (stylized as BOOMERANG and formerly marketed as BOOMERANG from Cartoon Network) is an American digital and satellite television channel owned and distributed by Time Warner through Turner Broadcasting. It specializes in classic and contemporary animated programming from Time Warner's archival history, including Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and The Garfield Show, along with repeats of in-production series on its brother channel, Cartoon Network including Sonic Boom, Pokémon, and Teen Titans Go!.
Launched in 1992 globally and in 2000 for the United States, Boomerang originated as a programming block and spinoff of Cartoon Network. It eventually grew into its own separate channel and identity, and similarly shares the same brand and likeness as Cartoon Network. It has a fluid and improvisational schedule of on-off programming blocks and television shows, on a continuous schedule usually without advertising or conmercialism.
As of February 2015, approximately 43.6 million households (37.5% of those with television) access the channel.
Boomerang's Streaming Service Edit
On March 7, 2017, Boomerang announced that it will launch an app that will feature programming from the 5000+ titles from Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros., as well as exclusive original programming. The app launched on April 11, 2017, and is available either for $4.99 per month or $39.99 annually. New episodes and contents are planned to be added weekly. Currently, the Boomerang App is only available for subscription in the United States. It is unknown when it will be available internationally.
Also, the Boomerang Streaming Service was said to include an offline download-to-go feature, but it is unknown when it will be officially added.
