The service will be ad-free and available domestically on Web, iOS and Android devices for $4.99 per month or $39.99 annually. It will later expand to several more platforms, including Amazon, Roku and Apple TV.
"Boomerang is a beloved brand that has always had multi-generational appeal and some of the greatest animated shows ever created," Christina Miller, president of Turner's Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Adult Swim, said in a statement. "Our on-going partnership with Warner Bros. around this new premium service continues our strategy of making sure our fans are engaged with fresh and fun content whenever and wherever they want it."
Part 2 of the first season of 'The Get Down,' Baz Luhrmann's Netflix drama about the birth of hip-hop, picks up in 1978, one year after the events of Part 1.
"We are bringing the best new and classic characters to kids, families and animation fans so they can now watch their favorites anywhere, anytime on any screen," added Craig Hunegs, president of business and strategy at Warner Bros. Television Group, and president of Warner Bros. Digital Networks. "It's a whole new way to access Warner Bros.' storied legacy of laughs!"
