Oh well, I'm not able to watch Boomerang anymore as my Cable Provider dropped it in my area, but I guess it's interesting to hear from the recent info above.
Oh wow, it looks like Comcast dropped some channels to free up the bandwidth so they don't have to rely on SDV (switched digital video) technology because it make much slower to tune.It's Xfinity.
Tell Discovery to make Boomerang as must carry under 1992 Cable Act, so Comcast is obligated to carry.Xfinity/Comcast NEVER carried Boomerang in my area (New England). Of course, back in the 2000s many Comcast providers did not carry Boomerang, and since a good chunk of the U.S.A. population used Comcast... well, there's a big reason why only a small percentage of people in the country got Boomerang then!
My dad would always say that Comcast would add Boomerang if enough people want them. And enough people DID want it, but Comcast New England still said "no", as it wasn't ad-supported back then.
They can at any time announce that all feeds will shut down. Although, it's unlikely.It's funny y'all still say Boomerang linear will shut down. You said it in 2017. Never happened. It's already 2022 it still won't happen anytime soon. TV marketing in the US is strong. You can argue that cable nowadays get low ratings but marketing keeps going on strong.
Ad revenue: They make a good use to keep the channel on-air to get that money.
Plus the channel is a strong brand around the world so for you in the US it wouldn't make logical sense to shut Boomerang down while the international countries still have it. It would be weird if that happened.
And it's been updated!Looks like TVPassport and OnTVTonight are in the process of correcting their Boomerang schedules to the current one!
