The Turner children's channel Boomerang has launched in Malaysia on HyppTV, the IPTV platform from Telekom Malaysia.

The channel, which is aimed at children between the ages of four and nine, provides animated classics like Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes and Scooby-Doo, as well as acquisitions such as Garfield, Pink Panther, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Mr Bean, Inspector Gadget, DreamWorks' Turbo FAST and DreamWorks' Dragons series.

"Boomerang provides light-hearted and fun moments for a whole new generation of viewers with iconic characters. It is hugely popular content presented in a safe environment for both boys and girls to feel happy, relaxed and to laugh. It's entertainment that parents can trust and enjoy together with their children," said Phil Nelson, senior vice president and managing director, Turner International, Southeast Asia Pacific and North Asia.

"Boomerang is already extremely popular in many countries around the world, and I'm confident Boomerang will soon be one of the best-loved channels for kids and families in Malaysia too."

The channel available in both English and Bahasa Malaysia will be included in HyppTV's Jumbo Pack and will also be available on an -la-carte basis. Existing Jumbo Pack subscribers will automatically receive Boomerang Channel on HyppTV Channel 555.

All HyppTV subscribers will be able to view Boomerang as part of a free trial until the end of September.
