Boomerang is a European pay television channel which is focused on animated kids programming. It is being broadcast Romania, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, former Yugoslav nations, Russia and CIS countries. Between November 2014 and February 2015, it was temporarily available in the Netherlands and the Flanders region of Belgium as well, and got a localised feed on 2 February 2015.[1] It started to be offered in Germany, Austria and Switzerland starting 1 October 2018, replacing Boomerang Germany.

Boomerang CEE used to broadcast in time-sharing with Viasat Nature. Viasat Nature would air nature documentaries from 8:00 PM CET to 5:00 AM CET, while Boomerang CEE would run for the rest of the day.

History[edit]

Boomerang EMEA was launched in December 2005. On 12 October 2011, it was split into two different feeds: one focused on Europe and another one centred on the Middle East and Africa. The European feed at the time consisted on four audio tracks, which were in English, Romanian, Hungarian and Polish. On 12 June 2012, it began being distributed in Russia after adding a Russian audio track to the channel's stream.

On 30 September 2015, Boomerang was launched on Skylink in Czech Republic. On 4 April 2018, Boomerang (Central and Eastern Europe) switched to the 16:9 aspect ratio.

On 1 October 2018, Boomerang CEE replaced Boomerang Germany and took over its channel frequencies. It launched a subfeed intended to air German advertisements and has no Russian rating icons being displayed in its broadcast, differing from the main feed. Although it has a German audio track, its commercial continuity remains in English.

Cartoonito[edit]

The block's logo used at the time.

Cartoonito was a programming block targeting preschoolers. It aired weekday mornings and early afternoons before the Cartoonito branding was phased out entirely in 2014, when Cartoonito merged with Boomerang's schedule.
