Cartoon Network Russia And Southeastern Europe Goes Widescreen

On Monday 5th December, Cartoon Network Russia and Southeastern Europe made the switch to 16:9 widescreen, this is a step towards launching the high definition feed which will be coming very soon. The channel airs a mixture of Check It 1.0 and (now mostly) Check It 4.0 presentation and is predominately textless due to the wide coverage of the channel which broadcasts in several countries that speak different languages. Cartoon Network Central Eastern Europe (Hungary and Romania) has yet to make the switch to widescreen.
