History[edit]

In late 2005, Turner Broadcasting System 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 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]

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