I.Sat (contraction of the Spanish phrase Imagen Satelital, which means "Satellite image") is an Argentine cable television channel owned by Warner Bros. Discovery International. It airs movies, series, music and shows. It is headquartered in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It is broadcast on the satellite Intelsat 21 and is broadcast by most cable television companies in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

History

Until 2007, the channel was owned by "Claxson Interactive Group Latin America & Iberia" (which was a subsidiary of the Venezuelan-based Grupo Cisneros) but that year the channel, along with Retro and Space, is bought by Turner Broadcasting System. It aired different programming on different blocks, such as "Primer Plano I.Sat" (foreign movies), "Cine Argentino Independiente" (independent Argentine films), "Asian Connection" (Asian films), and "Cortos I-Sat" (short films).

In 2007 it changed its programming from being a 24-hour movies channel to have movies, series, shows, documentary series, music and some others. Some current programming includes Little Britain, Raising Hope, Misfits, and others.

Adult Swim, which previously aired on Cartoon Network, aired every night with adult animation series since 2007 after its cancellation from Cartoon Network; however, the Adult Swim block was cancelled from I.Sat on 2010 due to low ratings.[1][2] Adult Swim however returned to I.Sat on April 3, 2015 until April 16, 2020.[3]
