Boomerang is a television channel broadcasting classic movies from the 1940s to the 1990s (mostly from the Warner Bros. and pre-May 1986 MGM film libraries) to Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

History[edit]

In late 2005, Turner Broadcasting System Europe reported that they had intended to launch the channel in the Nordic region. They had also applied for a license to broadcast Boomerang in the Swedish digital terrestrial network in the fall of 2005.[1] Boomerang was, however, not granted a license by the Swedish government at the time.

The channel launched on 1 April 2011 from the Canal Digital platform.[2] Boomerang had previously been offered as a programming block on Cartoon Network.

On 30 September 2010, it was launched as a channel on Viasat's satellite platform.[3]

On 19 January 2015, Boomerang Nordic applied the Boomerang rebrand.
