History and brandingEdit
The Australian version of Boomerang was launched on 14 March 2004 as part of the Foxtel Digital launch, with a line-up very similar to that of the US and UK version. Originally devoted to classic animation from studios such as Hanna-Barbera, the channel has since expanded to include more contemporary programming. This channel is available as a free trial in a subscription entertainment package on Fetch TV by some ISPs and was added 26 January 2017.
On 3 November 2014, Boomerang received a new logo and branding as part of a global rebranding effort. In late 2014 Boomerang had launched Art&Graft redesign which by 2015 came to Asia-Pacific territories, the United States, and later to Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
