Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting System and Warner Bros. have introduced a new streaming service for cartoon lovers. The $5-per-month Boomerang TV streaming package features classic cartoons and original content.
Based on the Boomerang cable channel that launched in 2000, the new Boomerang TV streaming service includes older titles from the Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes, and MGM animation libraries, including “Scooby Doo,” “Tom & Jerry,” “Bugs Bunny,” “The Jetsons,” “The Flintstones,” and more.
Newer offerings include, or will soon include, Warner Bros.’ new series, “Warner Bros. Animation’s Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz,” and Hanna-Barbera’s “Wacky Races.”
At launch, the service offers 1,000 episodes that you can stream online or through your mobile device.
You can subscribe to Boomerang for $40 per year or $5 per month, either through the Boomerang website or via the universal iOS app. The service is not yet available on Apple TV.
With so many TV streaming services already available that require a subscription, I’m not sure how Boomerang can succeed. Luckily, each subscription comes with a 7-day free trial.
