Boomerang Africa gets new name
Boomerang Africa, the kids’ TV channel owned by Warner Bros Discovery (WBD), is changing its name and will relaunch on 25 March.
From that date, the channel will be called Cartoonito Africa, with the change coming as WBD restructures its linear kids’ networks.
The rebranded channel will offer a mix of classic Boomerang shows and new titles. New content includes Batwheels, Bugs Bunny Builders and Secret Origins of the Batwheels.
Georginah Machiridza, executive head of general entertainment channels at MultiChoice, which carries the channel in Africa, said: “We’ve had a long-standing partnership with Boomerang and Warner Bros Discovery, and we’re excited to carry the rebranded channel for our audiences in Africa. We know that the new Cartoonito channel will bring our DStv customers even more value and more kids’ entertainment.”
Cartoonito Africa will air on DStv channel 302.
