History

Boomerang logo from July 2001 to April 3, 2006.

The channel was launched on July 2001 with the same logo and programming from the United States version. It aired classic programming and different shows and series that had been dropped from Cartoon Network.

On April 3, 2006, the channel is relaunched as a general children's network, becoming a version of Cartoon Network's sister network in India, POGO. Boomerang, with a new logo, started to air new series and shows, divided into different programming blocks which were the same that are aired on India's POGO. Those blocks included pre-scholar programming "MiniTV" ("TinyTV" in POGO), teen programming and classical programming. Each block had different colours which represent them.

On January 2008 the channel is relaunched again, but this time keeping the same logo. The channel becomes a 24-hour teen-focused channel, with original and non-original productions and only focused on teenagers.

Since then, Boomerang has been airing successful original shows, as "BoomBox", which includes interviews and live concerts with different musicians from all Latin America, United States and more recently, United Kingdom.

On April 1, 2009 the channel launched a mobile service. [1]

Programming blocks

Until 2008 Boomerang aired different blocks on different schedules for different audiences. The programming blocks included segments for young audiences, teenagers, and classical programming at night. The blocks were "color-coded" as the logo of the channel changed its color depending which programming block was being aired.

On January, 2008 the channel decides to focus its programming only on teenagers, dropping the pre-scholar and classic programming of the channel. As February, 2009 all the programming in all the schedules carry the same blue-green colored logo.
