Cartoon Network, commonly abbreviated as CN, is a Portuguese cable television channel launched in December 3, 2013[2] and owned by Turner Broadcasting System Europe (a semi-autonomous unit of Time Warner). Currently, Cartoon Network is the third most-watched kids and teens' channel in Portugal, only behind the Disney-branded channels.

History[edit]

The feed (Pan-European) received in Portugal, Angola and Mozambique was transmitted for a long time (from 1997 to the 3rd of December 2013), that is also received in countries that don't have their own version of the channel.

The European Portuguese version of the channel was launched on 1 October 2013 in Angola and Mozambique.[3]

From 3 December 2013, the channel was officially launched in Portugal on all cable operators, switching the Pan-European version (in English).[2] On the same day it was launched, the channel started transmitting now in the 16:9 image format.

When the Pan-European feed was still transmitted, the daily broadcast was of 15 hours (from 05:00 to 20:00) in Portugal. From that time, the channel was airing TCM. Some cable TV operators preferred dividing the two channels into their own channel (some with a description of their opening and closing times). Shortly after the release of Portugal's version of the channel, TCM and Boomerang stopped being aired in Portugal.

Around February 2014, the channel started airing advertisements, but in March 2014, they stopped airing them for unknown reasons, returning in the mid of the month.

CN Portugal was also the first European CN to adopt the CHECK it 3.0 branding.
