Cartoon Network Italy HD Launched Today

From today (28/11/2016), Cartoon Network Italy is now available in High Definition on Sky Italia channel 607, now animation fans in Italy will now get to enjoy Cartoon Network’s most popular shows including Steven Universe, The Amazing World of Gumball and Adventure Time in superior picture quality. Italy is the last major Western European country to have a HD version of Cartoon Network with exception to Spain; though Cartoon Network Spain no longer exists because it merged with Boing in 2013, Boing Spain had a temporary HD feed during Christmas 2015.

Cartoon Network Italy has also started to air some idents from Cartoon Network USA’s Dimensional 2016 rebrand package, but for the time being, Check It 1.0 presentation is still being used for Next/Later bumpers and for some idents.

Cartoon Network MENA And Boomerang MENA Launch On beIN Also In HD

According to news posted yesterday (01/07/2016) by forum members on the Arabic language forum website kooora.com, Cartoon Network MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and Boomerang MENA have launched and are now available in high definition on Middle Eastern direct-to-home satellite television provider, BeIN. Also according to forum members, both channels have the option to watch shows with Arabic audio. Both channels replace Cartoon Network Africa and Boomerang Africa on beIN.

BeIN has three different versions of Cartoon Network available on its television platform, the free-to-air Cartoon Network Arabic version, Cartoon Network MENA in English (with Arabic audio and also along with Boomerang MENA English) and the new Cartoon Network Hindi feed which launched in May this year.

Update and Correction:

According to ToonZone member Simon Petrikov who lives in Algeria (where beIN is available as a pay-tv provider), the new HD feed (i.e. CN MENA in English) is actually separate from Cartoon Network Africa which continues to be distributed on some providers in the Arab World, however the new feed does broadcast in Africa (North Africa to be exact) as well as the Middle East. Both new channels have a unique schedule.
