Cartoon Network is a German children's television channel broadcasting cartoons, based in Munich. Originally, the channel used the City bumpers, before switching to the Arrow bumpers. Later, the channel switched to Check It 1.0 on November 25, 2010 at 12:00 AM, and later switched to a hybrid of the Check It 1.0 and Check It 3.0 themes in October 2014. Since September 2016, the channel has been exclusively using the Check It 4.0 theme. Cartoon Network Germany is available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Programming also airs on Pokito, RTL II, kabel eins, ORF1, Super RTL and ProSieben.

Broadcasting[edit]

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.[1]

M7 Group's Kabelkiosk stopped broadcasting of Cartoon Network on 1 March 2017.

History[edit]

Cartoon Network launched in Germany on September 3, 2005 as a Saturday morning programming block on kabel eins. 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.[2] On 1 September 2016, Cartoon Network Germany re-branded using graphics from the Check It 4.0 branding package.[3]
