Cartoon Network is a Turkish pay television channel that mainly broadcasts cartoons. It was launched on 28 January 2008 and is owned by Doğan Yayın Holding under license from Warner Bros. Europe.

History[edit]

The channel was launched on 28 January 2008. On 4 April 2011, the channel received the Check It 1.0 brand with new bumpers, television IDs, promos, and continuity. It also promoted new movies ads in the year 2011 during the commercial breaks (such as Şirinler and Hediye Operasyonu) with scenes from the movie mixed up with the Check It 1.0 brand.

On 1 January 2015, the channel rebranded itself with new graphics (Check It 3.0). One year later, on 6 October 2016, the channel switched from 4:3 to 16:9 aspect ratio. On 1 January 2017, Cartoon Network started to use graphics from Cartoon Network USA's Dimensional 2016 rebrand package.[1]
