Boomerang is a television channel targeting the Nordic countries. It broadcasts cartoons such as Scooby-Doo and Top Cat.

History[edit]

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

The channel launched on April 1, 2008 from the Canal Digital platform.[2] Boomerang had previously been offered as a programming block on Cartoon Network.

On February 1, 2010, the channel was launched on Viasat's satellite platform.[3]
