Time Warner To Launch Cartoon Streaming Service Called Boomerang
A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION TO THE NEW STREAMING SERVICE WILL START AT $5
As AT&T draws closer to officially taking over Time Warner in a $85.4 billion deal, the media/entertainment giant is getting ready to launch a new subscription streaming service called 'Boomerang'. Boomerang, named after the cable network is a buddy up between sibling companies Warner Bros and Turner. The service will be ad free and carry content from WB, Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM which means there will be no shortage of content for your little ones to enjoy. Though this isn't a prelude to the end of Boomerang as a cable network, if viewers of that channel wants to see new episodes of “Scooby-Doo,” “Looney Tunes” and “Tom & Jerry, they will need to subscribe to the new streaming service.
This comes as Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes revealed that even though the AT&T deal isn't complete yet, the companies have already begun integration planning so that when the deal is complete the companies "can hit the ground running." The launch of the Boomerang streaming service will be Time Warner's second stand alone venture in the streaming service market. Back in 2015 the company launched HBO Now. Today HBO Now has more than 2 million domestic subscribers.
