Cartoon Network is a German pay television channel which primarily broadcasts cartoons. It is based in Munich and is available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.


In August 2013, SES Platform Services (later MX1, now part of SES Video) won an international tender by Turner Broadcasting System to provide playout services for Cartoon Network, Boomerang, glitz*, TNT Film and TNT Serie (in both SD and HD) for the German-speaking market, digitization of existing Turner content, and playout for Turner on-demand and catch-up services in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Benelux region, from November 2013.[1]

M7 Group's Kabelkiosk stopped broadcasting of Cartoon Network on 1 March 2017.


Cartoon Network launched in Germany on September 3, 2005 as a Saturday morning programming block on kabel eins. In December 2013 kabel eins cancelled the programming block.[2] In June 2006, a German version of Boomerang was launched; this was followed by the simultaneous launch of Cartoon Network Germany as a 24-hour channel and TCM Germany on December 5, 2006.[3] On 1 September 2016, Cartoon Network Germany re-branded using graphics from the Check It 4.0 branding package.[4]
