Cartoon Network is an entertainment television channel created by Turner Broadcasting System Europe, a unit of Time Warner which primarily shows animated programming. The Italian version was launched on 31 July 1996.


The channel appeared for the first time in 1996 on the digital satellite platform TELE+[it] and Stream TV in English, but it was in early 1998 that the channel started transmitting in Italian. It became available on the Sky Italia platform in 2003 and in late 2008 became available on the Mediaset Premium platform. Cartoon Network Italy launched a high definition feed and partially rebranded using graphics from Cartoon Network USA's 2016 Dimensional rebrand package on November 28, 2016.[2]
