Boomerang Streaming Service Will Bring Classic Cartoons to Cord Cutters

Boomerang Streaming Service Will Bring Classic Cartoons to Cord Cutters

Classic cartoon fans will be the latest group to enjoy their own niche streaming service when Boomerang, a new all-cartoon streaming app, launches this spring.

The service is a joint effort from Turner and Warner Bros., and will feature a huge library of animated shows from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM. Fans of Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones, and Scooby-Doo, among others, will be able to stream classic episodes on demand.

The pricing is in line with what we’ve seen from existing niche streaming services like Seeso and Shudder: $4.99/month or $39.99/year.  Monthly subscribers can try out the service for a week before paying, while annual customers can get a free month (Time Warner’s press release does not make it clear how they would stop a subscriber from taking the annual deal’s month-long free trial, canceling, and then signing up for the monthly rate).

Platform support will be pretty limited at rollout, with just a web app and mobile (iOS and Android) support, but other apps for major streaming devices will follow: apps for Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Apple TV are promised.

You can sign up for the service’s prelaunch mailing list at Boomerang.com.

  1. Very excited about the possibility of streaming Boomerang. I hope they bring back some of the oldies like Huckleberry Hound, Pixie & Dixie, Ricochet Rabbit, and Quicksdraw McGraw. When Boomerang first aired they used to play these all the time. That mess they play now is not worth watching (Powder Puff Girls, Dexter)… Thanks for the heads up…
