Broadcast Locations

Western Europe

Spain receives its own feed with Spanish soundtrack. It's available through satellite platform Digital+ and cable operators and it carries the Toonami block. A local version of the Boomerang channel is also available.

France has a localized version of the channel and a localized version of her sister channel Boomerang with French soundtrack. The channel is carried on CanalSat.

In Germany a localized version of Cartoon Network is available on digital channels. However, Cartoon Network programming is also broadcasted on Kabel Eins on weekends. A German Boomerang channel is also found on several Pay-TV stations.

Italy has its own localized version of Cartoon Network which launched in 1996, as well in 2003 with the launch of Sky Italia the sister-channel Boomerang was launched. The channel is available on Sky Italia.

The Netherlands has its own version of Cartoon Network as well, and most programs are in the original English language with Dutch subtitles. However, during daytime hours certain programs are broadcast with a Dutch soundtrack to attract younger children. The channel is available through all major providers including Canal Digitaal, UPC and Ziggo. A Dutch version of Boomerang is also available through most providers. Both channels are exceptionally popular amongst university students. The now-defunct terrestrial broadcaster Yorin used to show Cartoon Network programming on weekday afternoons.

Scandinavia

In Scandinavia, Cartoon Network was twinned with movie channel TNT in a pan-European version. Cartoon Network ran from 6:00am until 8:00pm CET, with TNT taking over from 8:00pm to 6:00am CET. Some programmes on the pan-European feed were dubbed into Norwegian, Swedish and Danish. 1996, it became a 24-hour channel, as did TNT. However, a version of the channel called TNT & Cartoon Network continued to appear on some providers. In 2000, a regional Scandinavian version of Cartoon Network was created, broadcasting in Swedish, Danish and Norwegian.

Most of the programming comes with monophonic English, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian soundtracks. The self-imposed necessity to dub material into three languages takes a heavy toll on the availability of new programs in the feed, which may come late, in smaller amount or not come at all. Existing programming is heavily recycled. The feed has seen an upsurge of commercial advertising in recent years, despite being distributed only on pay-TV. Most of the commercials and announcements on English soundtrack are nevertheless in Danish.

In mid-May 2006, the Cartoon Network logo was changed from the original logo to the British one, as well as the pre-show idents and promos were changed to the British style. The Boomerang block was removed but most of its program content still remains in the channel.
