Upfronts 2012: Cartoon Network to Stream Content across Multiple Platforms


Following its upfront presentation in New York last month in which it unveiled seven new series, Cartoon Network announced at its Los Angeles upfront Wednesday that it will soon begin streaming its content live across multiple platforms.

Cartoon Network's programming will be available online at CartoonNetwork.com and on mobile devices such as the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.

"It is our commitment to the TV Everywhere strategy to let our audiences enjoy our shows whenever and wherever they want," said Stuart Snyder, president and COO, Turner Broadcasting's Animation, Young, Adults & Kids Media in a statement. "Soon, viewers will be able to catch Cartoon Network anywhere and everywhere-whether they are in front of their television or maybe even at the airport waiting for a flight, we will be available for viewers to experience the live telecast seamlessly."

The network also announced that comedian and songwriter Toby Turner, who appeared at the upfront in Los Angeles, would join the cast of Cartoon Network's upcoming new animated series, Annoying Orange.
