Spacetoon TV (Arabic: سبيستون‎ or سبيس تون) is a pan–Arab free–to–air television channel that specializes in animation and children programs. It began broadcasting on 15 March 2000[5] and it is headquartered in Dubai, UAE[6] with offices in Riyadh.[6] The channel targets children from 4 and up and is for the family. Its late night block Space Power is targeted at teenagers and young adults.

The Spacetoon company has had two now-defunct channels in the Arab world besides the main still existing Spacetoon channel: Space Power TV and Spacetoon English and a video on demand app called Spacetoon Go.

The main Indonesian channel began airing on 23 March 2005 in Jakarta,[7] it later became NET. and its broadcast remains on satellite television. Currently there are three Spacetoon channels in Indonesia, Spacetoon, Space Shopping and Spacetoon Plus. In India, Spacetoon India exists as licensing company, but not as a separate TV channel. In South Korea, Spacetoon launched in 2005 but has since closed down.[8] Syria is the main owner of Spacetoon channel Spacetoon is broadcast in 22 countries, and has an audience of over 130 million viewers.[9]


Arab world

In 1999, Bahrain Radio and Television Corporation officially signed an agreement to broadcast a children's cartoon channel. On 15 March 2000, Spacetoon officially launched, but as a seven-hour block.[6] It was for two years, until 12 January 2002 when the contract ended, according to a statement issued by the Ministry. Later, Spacetoon has moved its headquarter to Dubai[6] and was established as an independent channel on Nilesat running for 24/7.[6]


In Indonesia, Spacetoon officially launched on 23 March 2005. The station was founded by H. Sukoyo, a former TV7 executive. When it was launched, Spacetoon broadcast on 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. WIB. Later broadcast timings were extended from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. WIB. When programming ended, a 10-minute section filled with animation, songs, or messages for children was shown. On mid-2011, due to financial problems, Spacetoon began broadcasting some home-shopping program and alternative medicine program.

In March 2013, 95% of Spacetoon ownership stakes were acquired by NET. Finally on 18 May 2013, Spacetoon officially closed for terrestrial to make way for NET. on terrestrial network, while Spacetoon broadcast in Indonesia still remains on satellite television. In September 2014, Spacetoon split into two channels: Spacetoon and Spacetoon 2. Spacetoon 2 broadcasts more cartoon and animation than Spacetoon although still broadcasts some home-shopping programs. In May 2016, Spacetoon added another channel, Spacetoon 3. It had clearer audio than Spacetoon and Spacetoon 2, but was closed down on October of the same year. In November 2016, Spacetoon 2 was renamed as Space Shopping, and the reason was home shopping programmes having way much revenue on the channel, which itself had little income. Currently, Spacetoon has three channels in Indonesia: Spacetoon, Space Shopping, and Spacetoon Plus.



Each of the programs aired were divided in blocks, called "planets", one for each genre:
