History[edit]

On 5 June 2005, Boomerang Europe was launched in English for all Europe, Middle East and Africa, including Portugal, Angola and Mozambique. On 31 December 2013, the Pan-European feed was removed in Portugal due to the launch of the Portuguese feed of Cartoon Network. On 21 April 2015, Boomerang in European Portuguese was launched in Angola and Mozambique as a partnership with DStv and it is available on the DStv Bué and DStv Grande packages. Later, it was launched in Portugal on 26 April 2018 and it is available with Vodafone and Nowo TV operators.[3]
