Cartoon Network HD Launches in Indonesia
Turner has recently launched Cartoon Network HD on Indonesia’s leading national cable platform, First Media. The Indonesian launch is part of a regional rollout plan for Cartoon Network HD that started off in the Philippines last January, and will continue all throughout the rest of the year. The new HD channel will complement the company’s existing portfolio of news and entertainment channels actively broadcasting in Indonesia (such as CNN, Cartoon Network, Turner Classic Movies, truTV, and Boomerang)
Serving as the first ever High Definition channel for kid viewers in the world’s most populous country, Cartoon Network HD will provide the ultimate TV watching experience to millions of homes, headlined by a host of award-winning animation in vivid audio and visual detail.
“Indonesia is a priority market for Turner in Asia and we’re thrilled to be joining with First Media to pioneer the ultimate kids’ TV viewing experience here,” said Sunny Saha, Turner Asia’s senior VP and managing director. “Our young and growing fan base is increasingly sophisticated in their content consumption, and Cartoon Network HD takes the experience of animated storytelling to a whole new level.”
Cartoon Network HD’s programming line-up features comedies such as The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time, Chowder, action adventure toons such as Ben 10 and Ben 10 Alien Force, and classics such as Tom & Jerry Show, Pink Panther & Pals and Scooby-Doo.
