The broadcasting authority in India granted the licence on 6th March, at present Cartoon Network India broadcasts in the 4:3 aspect ratio.

At present, Cartoon Network India is an English language service with a Hindi soundtrack in due course. Cartoon Network India’s sister feed in the Middle East – Cartoon Network Hindi is already available in HD, Cartoon Network Hindi’s HD feed launched in January this year.
Both channels air Cartoon Network’s most popular animated shows, as well as local animation programming such as Roll No.21. At present, it is not known when Cartoon Network India’s HD feed will launch.
