Cartoon Network is a German pay television channel broadcasting cartoons, based in Munich. Cartoon Network Germany is available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
In August 2013, SES Platform Services (now MX1) won an international tender by Turner Broadcasting System to provide playout services for Cartoon Network, Boomerang, glitz*, TNT Film and TNT Serie (in both SD and HD) for the German-speaking market, digitization of existing Turner content, and playout for Turner on-demand and catch-up services in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Benelux region, from November 2013.
Cartoon Network launched in Germany on September 3, 2005 as a Saturday morning programming block on kabel eins. In December 2013 kabel eins cancelled the programming block. In June 2006, a German version of Boomerang was launched; this was followed by the simultaneous launch of Cartoon Network Germany as a 24-hour channel and TCM Germany on December 5, 2006. On 1 September 2016, Cartoon Network Germany re-branded using graphics from the Check It 4.0 branding package.
