Retro was a Latin American cable television network with classic programming that included movies and popular classic TV Series. It was owned by Turner Broadcasting System Latin America, a unit of WarnerMedia. Its headquarters were located in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

On March 25, 2009 Turner Broadcasting System announced the replacement of Retro by a Latin American version of the channel truTV, also owned by Turner Broadcasting System. Most of the programming from Retro is still being aired on TCM Classic Entertainment.[1]

On April 1, 2009 at 5:30am (Buenos Aires time), the channel aired its last show, the Robotech episode "Symphony of Light". Retro was replaced by truTV at 6am.[1]

In some countries of Latin America, some cable television companies opted to replace Retro with TCM Classic Entertainment instead of truTV.
