    My friend has Direct TV and I was over his house the other day and he has the cartoon Network Channel Boomerang and I was just wondering how the hell I could get the Comast Digital Cable in my area to carry it and if anyone who has digital cable get it in any of their areas.

    I my self have DTV and yep, I got it. I do know that Time Warner Digital Cable provides that channel, but no way in hell am I going to pay thier prices.

    Check the Comcast website and see what packages they offer (and channels offered). Obviously you have to pay more if you upgrade your package to have it include Boomerang and other channels.

    Boomerang airs classic WB/Hanna Barbera (and other )cartoon shows such as Tom & Jerry, Pink Panther, Flinstones, Jetsons.. Recently they started airing shows that ended not while ago such as Superman animated series, Baby Luney Tunes (or something), and What's new scooby doo?

    Good luck, I've been trying to get Comcast to carry Boomerang for about 4 years now.

    The cool thing about Boomerang is the eps are primarily commerical free, so that is why it is a "Premium Channel" to a lot of providers

    Hah, yep, what commercials they do have consist of them advertising for their own shows or CN's. But they come on after the show is done.

    I get Boomerang for both DTV and Time Warner. I'm not entirely sure, but I think i'm getting more channels from TW. I don't watch em though.

    Now if only Boomerang went and brought Top Cat back on. : (

    They used to show Pirates of dark water and Swat Kats, the two best ever HB cartoons. They make regular reruns from time to time.

    To get Boomerang, you have to pass a set of rigorous initiation tasks.

    The first task is to send me $150.

    After this task has been completed I will reveal to you the second.
