Tooncast is a Latin American pay television channel owned by Warner Bros. Discovery through its International division. It was launched on 1 December 2008;[1] its programming consists of classical animation, both from Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network. The channel is a commercial-free service.

History

The channel was launched on 1 December 2008, after all classic animation programming from Warner Bros., Hanna-Barbera and MGM were removed from Boomerang Latin America, to center the network towards the teen audience, and replacing it with live-action programming instead.

Tooncast follows the Boomerang US old channel line-up, which aired classic cartoons. Old Cartoon Network commercials are also broadcast on the channel, such as "Cartoons That Never Made It," Cartoon Network Groovies, and Boomerang Shorties. Unlike other channels of Turner Broadcasting System Latin America, few pay-TV providers carry Tooncast. The only exception is Brazil, where the channel is available on most subscription TV providers, such as Oi TV, Claro TV, GVT TV, Vivo TV, Kiwisat and Nossa TV. Since 1 August 2014, Tooncast began to be carried on NET, the biggest cable television company in Brazil.[2][3]

Even though Tooncast remained with a single pan-regional feed with audio tracks in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and English, in November 2012 the channel started using the Brazilian content rating system.

On 26 September 2018, the channel was picked up by Sky Brasil.

On 1 April 2019, all classic programming from the Turner animation library, including productions from Warner Bros., Hanna-Barbera and MGM, were removed from the schedule making focus on Cartoon Network original productions, and also airing anime series like Pokémon and the Brazilian animated series Monica and Friends, following WarnerMedia's business restructure, that also affected programming on sister networks like Cartoon Network and Boomerang. However, it eventually returned from 1 June–1 July 2019 and they have recently been reinstated. The cartoons of Hanna-Barbera, Warner Bros. and MGM returned to the programming in June, however, that change was made again in July of the same year, and then returned in January 2020, where they were included for the first time in the program channel such as Batman Beyond, Teen Titans and Thundercats.

On 1 June 2021, the channel's programming underwent a drastic change, being greatly reduced compared to previous months; However, this reduction in programs is also accompanied by some new releases. It is speculated that these changes came as an effect of the launch in Latin America of the streaming service HBO Max.
