Turner’s kids’ channel Boomerang heads to Taiwan

Turner’s kids’ channel Boomerang is heading to Taiwan for the first time.

From November 14th, the network will boast Mandarin audio and traditional Chinese subtitles.

New shows will include the likes of Bunnicula, Talking Tom and Grizzy and the Lemmings, alongside well known shows Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes.

The agreement will also increase the channel’s distribution in Asia Pacific to 32 million households since its launch in 2014.

“To see Boomerang’s country count and regional distribution maintain this kind of momentum is fantastic,” said Phil Nelson, MD at Turner for North and Southeast Asia Pacific.

“Cartoon Network is already the number one international kids channel in Taiwan and Boomerang will complement it perfectly – providing viewers with the ultimate family-friendly destination for iconic cartoon franchises.”
