Turner flagship channels Cartoon Network and Boomerang are heading to a new home in Australia, with a planned launch this month on IPTV service Fetch TV. In addition to fan-favorite animated series like Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls, Tom and Jerry and Scooby-Doo, Fetch TV viewers will be among the first to see the new CN series Mighty Magiswords, while Boomerang is the destination for new episodes of Mr. Bean, Inspector Gadget and Looney Tunes.
Fetch TV added Turner’s news channel CNN International to its lineup in October.
“Fetch families are going to love this news!” said Robi Stanton, General Manager of Turner Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Territories. “With Boomerang and Cartoon Network added to the line-up, subscribers now have access to the best animation from around the world. Both channels feature characters designed with one purpose in mind – to make everyone laugh.”
“Fetch is thrilled to reach a partnership agreement with Turner, and with the three fantastic additions to our channel offering – CNN, Cartoon Network and Boomerang,” said Fetch TV’s CEO Scott Lorson. “We will continue to partner with world-class content channel partners like Turner to bring Fetch TV subscribers the very best in entertainment. Plenty more to come.”
Fetch TV is available via ISPs including Optus, iiNet, Dodo, Internode, and iPrimus, and via leading retailers Harvey Norman and JB-HiFi.
