Kwesé brings Toonami to Africa

Turner has partnered with Kwesé TV in Africa to launch its children’s channel Toonami in English-speaking countries on the continent.

Ben 10

Toonami is aimed at children aged between eight and 12 and features animated versions of DC Comics characters, including Batman and Superman.

Other animated superheroes, such as Ben 10 and Thundercats, will also be included in the schedule.

The channel launches exclusively on Kwesé TV’s satellite TV service and mobile app today in English-speaking countries outside South Africa.

The move follows Kwesé TV-owner Econet Media’s multi-territory agreement with Turner allowing it to carry channels such as CNN International, Cartoon Network and Boomerang in Africa.

“The addition of this exciting new channel to our network brings further diversity, choice and, more importantly, exclusivity to our premium children’s line-up,” said Econet Media president and group CEO Joseph Hundah.
