  • The app will also be home for original IP from Cartoon Network Studios’ renowned Shorts Program, bringing new and exclusive content from the best young artists.

“Giving kids the best experience possible on all screens available is core to our strategy,” said Christina Miller, president and general manager, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang. “The new Cartoon Network app effortlessly blends choice, control and all their favorite shows in a fun and dynamic way to watch.”

Cartoon Network continues to evolve and redefine what it means to be a “network,” developing user experiences to meet audience demands on every platform.
