The classic cartoons powerhouse Boomerang is now available on Amazon. Amazon users can add this streaming service for $4.99 per month as part of Amazon’s available channels.
The Cartoon Network-owned Boomerang channel houses classic cartoons familiar to many cartoon lovers, as well as newer shows targeting younger audiences. Boomerang users will find award-winning options such as Loony Tunes, Scooby Doo, and Tom and Jerry. Among its newer content Boomerang also provides many recognizable titles, including PowerPuff Girls and Sonic Boom.
What is Boomerang?
Boomerang is a classic cartoon channel launched in 1992 that did not make it to the U.S. until 2000. The channel was originally designed as a programming block on the Cartoon Network itself. Parent company Turner debuted the service in the U.S. as a standalone cable channel. Turner relaunched the service internationally in 2015 as an ad-supported channel with original programming alongside its larger library of classic cartoons and movies.
People interested in Boomerang can subscribe to it through their Amazon Prime Video account. After a 7-day free trial, the service costs $4.99 per month. As with other Amazon Prime channels, it will appear directly under the “Your Channels” section.
What are Amazon Prime Video Channels
As part of its complex video streaming options, Amazon includes the option to add additional “channels” to a Prime Video account. Added channels are separate from the already-extensive library of content Amazon Prime users can access as part of their subscription fee. Prime Channels are third-party services that offer their content library through Amazon.
Some of these services, such as HBO, already have individual streaming services. However, a large number of the channels offered through Prime Video do not have their own streaming services, apps, or websites, instead utilizing Amazon’s distribution network to offer content to potential users.
