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 carried by most cable television companies in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

Recent 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 movie channel to having 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]

In December 2023, Warner Bros. Discovery announced that I.Sat would shut down on February 29, 2024, along with Glitz and the Latin American version of MuchMusic.[4]
