The channel Toonami offers top-rated series such as DC Comics’ Batman, Superman, The Green Lantern, Young Justice and The Justice League.
WarnerMedia has partnered with StarTimes to launch Toonami, a TV channel, across sub-Saharan African countries. Subscribers in Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia, Ghana, Malawi, and Mozambique will now have access to the channel, owned by WarnerMedia.
Toonami has been present in Africa for the past three years and offers top-rated series such as DC Comics’ Batman, Superman, The Green Lantern, Young Justice and The Justice League as well as popular animated series Teen Titans among others.
The Toonami movie block will screen a host of animated feature films during prime-time Mondays to Sundays as well as Saturday mornings. Weekends will offer users movies like Green Lantern Emerald Knights, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Batman: Monster Mayhem and All-star Superman.
Commenting on the launch, Guillaume Coffin, VP Head of Commercial and Business Development Turner France, Africa & Israel, said: “WarnerMedia has an existing relationship with StarTimes in French-speaking African regions, which has allowed us to distribute Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Boing, WarnerTV and CNN, among other franchises. We look forward to creating more platforms within this partnership to widen our footprint on the continent.”
Lily Meng, Head of StarTimes Media Division, added: “We are delighted to expand our partnership with WarnerMedia toward Anglophone Africa. StarTimes is committed to providing access to high-quality content to all family members, and especially to kids who in many countries have to stay home right now. Toonami comes at the right time to strengthen our kid’s channel portfolio.”
