Boomerang USA Switches To Widescreen

Boomerang USA has made the transition to 16:9 widescreen, which means viewers will now be able to enjoy Boomerang’s newer shows from Warner Bros. Animation (including Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and Bunnicula) in its intended picture format. In addition to widescreen, Boomerang (and music channel REVOLT) is now available in the lowest package of AT&T’s DirecTV NOW live TV streaming service (DirecTV NOW Plus, subscribers grandfathered in the Live a Little package will also receive Boomerang). Boomerang is not available in the Entertainment, Choice and Xtra packages but is available in the Ultimate and Optimo Más packages. The package changes happened during the carriage renewal dispute between DirecTV and Viacom (Nickelodeon, MTV etc.), which was resolved in the early hours of Saturday morning (23rd March).
