Turner Broadcasting System Europe (also known simply as Turner Europe, Middle East and Africa) is a division of Turner Broadcasting System that is responsible for managing the collection of their cable and satellite networks around Europe, Middle East and Africa. Turner Broadcasting System Europe operates the following brands: CNN International, Boomerang, Turner Classic Movies, TNT, Cartoon Network, Boing, truTV, HLN, Toonami, Warner TV and Cartoonito. The availability of these brands depends on what country in Europe, Middle East and Africa the viewer is from. The most available brands include Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN and Turner Classic Movies. In 2019, Turner EMEA will be moving to their new headquarters in Old Street, Shoreditch, London. The new headquarters will have more office space allowing room for the company's European operations to expand and a brand new custom-built CNN newsroom.[1]
