TCM & Cartoon Network (formerly TNT & Cartoon Network) is a satellite channel that airs TCM from 21:00 CET to 6:00 CET (from 20:00 GMT to 5:00 GMT) and IST respectively and Cartoon Network the remaining time, mainly for analogue cable systems across Europe and India, although it was originally targeted at the Republic of Ireland, India and the United Kingdom. It was formerly free-to-air, but is now carried encrypted and provided only to cable companies and on some commercial satellite systems.

Its former name was TNT & Cartoon Network, due to the existence of TNT Classic Movies in Europe and India at that time. After the foundation of a European and Asian version of Turner Classic Movies, this was offered instead, with TNT becoming a UK-only entertainment channel within Europe, and eventually closing down.

In the 1990s, Cartoon Network UK was distributed on the European channel, with certain shows made unavailable (and replaced with others) outside the United Kingdom after 1999, due to rights issues. On the introduction of a UK and India specific version of Cartoon Network, after the beginning of Sky Digital, TCM & Cartoon Network chose the pan-European and Indian version of Cartoon Network, which continues to operate with multiple sound tracks on many satellites.

Now TCM and Cartoon Network are two separate channels operating in Europe and the Indian Subcontinent.

Currently in India, TCM is now available in Tata Sky and Dish Tv

The timeshare variation however is still currently running on the analogue service of NTL: but NTL: analogue is due to be switched off possibly next year.

In some countries (such as Bulgaria), the two separate channels are not available, and only TCM & Cartoon Network is offered to operators, even on digital services. The shows there are mostly Dexter's Laboratory, Scooby Doo and other shows with very few commercials letting viewers watch more.
