Sky Kids is to become the exclusive home for on demand boxsets of shows on the Bafta award-winning Cartoon Network, among other channels.

Boomerang and Cartoonito will also be available through the catch-up service for young people, thanks to a deal with Turner International, which operates the channels.

The agreement means children will be able to watch their favourite shows, including The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time, Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry.

Sky Kids is available either on the Sky TV homepage or as a mobile app, which means young people can watch these programmes whenever and wherever they like.

Lucy Murphy, Head of Kids Content at Sky, commented: "Turner produces some of kids’ absolute favourite shows. 

"We know how much our customers love Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Cartoonito so it is great news that our relationship with Turner will be continuing for many years to come."

Ms Murphy said having great shows for children is a priority to Sky and that it wants its customers to have the "very best kids' entertainment available" at times and places that suit them.

Ian McDonough, SVP and Managing Director of Turner in northern Europe, added that it is very happy to be expanding its partnership with Sky. 

"This is an important and much valued relationship, and a testament to our ongoing commitment to deliver the very best curated and connected Turner brand experiences for young audiences and their families," he commented.

Mr McDonough went on to state that Turner's kids channel and programme brands are going "from strength to strength", with some great launches "imminent", including a new version of cult hit The Powerpuff Girls and the latest episodes of Ben 10.
