Turner Africa launched new kids channel called ‘Toonami’ on Tuesday, March 29, 2016.
The channel was launched successfully in France last week, and is currently being rolled out to other select European markets and French-speaking African countries.
The introduction of Toonami reinforces the organisation’s portfolio of successful kids’ channels that includes Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Boing across various African markets.
During March, the channel is scheduled to launch on the following pay TV platforms: Maroc Telecom in Morocco, Blueline in Madagascar and Parabole on the Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius, Comores and Madagascar. It’s also lined up as a channel on Gabon Telecom once this new operator launches in the country.
FYI: Turner is currently in discussions with various pay TV operators across the continent to bring the new channel to all English-speaking territories in Africa too.
