In April, classic cartoon network Boomerang was announced as a new spin-off streaming service of its own, after initially being offered as a cable channel by Time Warner. Boomerang mentioned at the time that an Apple TV app was coming sometime in the future, and this week that app has debuted on the tvOS App Store, bringing classic shows like Wacky Races, Yogi Bear, and Scooby-Doo to Apple TV.

Just like the iOS app, Boomerang on Apple TV will allow subscribers of the $4.99/month service access to more than 5,000 titles across movies and TV shows from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM animation catalogs. New and exclusive shows are also on the service, and every week it adds new episodes to both modern and classic shows.

Boomerang is THE place to watch all your favorite cartoons to your heart’s content, on demand and ad free. Enjoy classic shows and new originals you can’t get anywhere else. Your Boomerang subscription allows you to control the viewing experience in a kid-friendly environment with your whole family with no TV package required.

The library is only part of the fun! New episodes of new original shows or classics from the vault are added every week. Get new episodes of New Looney Tunes, Bunnicula, Be Cool Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry and more, plus brand new shows coming later this year! Enjoy full seasons of old favorites from Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and all the favorite cartoons you love.

In celebration of Boomerang's first original series, called Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, the company is offering a 30-day free trial to all Kansas-based users who sign up beginning today, June 29, through July 4. Otherwise, Boomerang costs $4.99/month, and there's also a $39.99/year alternative.

Cord cutting is expensive. Thought when the idea first came out that we were going to be saving money by selecting the channels we wanted. But at $5 a channel the cable company with log ins on apps quickly becomes the cheapest route.
Only us consumers wanted fat discounts. Everyone else in the supply chain wants to make more money, not less. The dream of upwards of everything for next to nothing... perhaps commercial-free too... was always a wild delusion.

Plenty of free public & private channels stream classic cartoons 24/7 or on demand on Roku. Also, the actual Boomerang live channel is available from several different countries (UK, Portugal, Russia, Spain). I'll pass.

A lot of public domain cartoons & given how easy it is to create an OTT 'channel', there's a lot of duplication on specific cartoons & episodes, but it's entertaining & it's free.
Those are good points, but I'm willing to pay the reasonable amount for curated, high quality versions. Basically Netflix for classic cartoons; no ads, on-demand. Looked into it earlier, they're 1080p, etc. And I assume if they have a TV show, they're going to have all the episodes. Good to hear there are free options as well.

I was considering buying a blu-ray collection of Looney Tunes, because I wanted a no hassle way to see these in high quality, and I still might do that, but I'm going to give this a try first.

I don't know why Regions still exist. When distribution required finding a distributor in every country to handle physical media and there wasn't an alternative distribution system then that model made sense. With the internet, it really doesn't anymore. The first content provider who gets rid of this horse and buggy system and has efficient and fair pricing will make a killing.

But it's been 20 or more years and as far as I know no one has been able to get rights to enough content, without the baggage of useless regions being added.

So let me get this straight.....

Because something is not available to you. It’s an excuse to steal it???

Can you log in with a cable provider? I have the Boomerang channel on PlayStation Vue and would greatly prefer to use the App (best way to start the day is Tom and Jerry and Looney Toons - about as relevant as CNN and MSNBC).
